A must listen for… anyone!

A thoughtful, critical and insightful show on the relationship between us humans and our technology. A must listen.

Really insightful and hands-on show

I’m a big fan of Tristan’s work, we need it to avoid catastrophic consequences of unregulated tech for our society. Must listen for all tech entrepreneurs and politicians.

Podcast is creepy and low quality because of where its funding comes from

I listened to this and wondered how such poor speakers and thinkers ended up with the status they have, so I looked into it. It’s because a) one of the hosts has a famous father and b) they are funded by George Soros. The latter explains why the show sounds less like a normal podcast and more like a bizarrely inept pitch for dystopian regulation.
