A few weeks ago Ezra Klein did a podcast episode with Kara Swisher of “Sway.” and I remembered how much I enjoy Kara’s sharp tongue, quick wit, and deep knowledge of tech and business. Since then I have subscribed to the aforementioned podcast Sway:
Power, unpacked. “Sway” is an interview show hosted by Kara Swisher, “Silicon Valley’s most feared and well liked journalist.” Now taking on Washington, Hollywood and the world, Kara investigates power: who has it, who’s been denied it, and who dares to defy it. Every Monday and Thursday, from New York Times Opinion Audio.Sway Podcast from the New York Times
Her interviews on Sway are really well done. She is well researched and has expanded beyond Silicon Valley here. Great listen guaranteed.
From there I learned about her team podcast with Scott Galloway called Pivot from Vox Media:
Every Tuesday and Friday, Recode’s Kara Swisher and NYU Professor Scott Galloway offer sharp, unfiltered insights into the biggest stories in tech, business, and politics. They make bold predictions, pick winners and losers, and bicker and banter like no one else. After all, with great power comes great scrutiny. From New York Magazine and the Vox Media Podcast Network.Pivot from Vox Media
These two are hilarious and interesting to listen to.
Then found out that Scott has his own podcast called The Pod:
A bi-weekly podcast offering Scott’s fresh and irreverent perspective on the news, plus a 45 minute interview with a ‘blue-flame thinker’ on Thursdays, and listener questions about the business world, big tech, and entrepreneurship answered on Mondays.The Pod from Prof G Media
They cut through the BS, keep it fun, but also give some good insights into technology and business today. I cannot recommend them enough.
