I thought the latest season (on Apple) was going to go into more depth with more episodes but it didn’t really conclude and I found myself wondering if there was meant to be more episodes

Land of The Giants is very well produced, researched, and interesting to listen to. If you’re interested in tech, I highly recommend a listen. One of the best podcasts I’ve found in a long time. Can’t wait for next season!

Great storytelling of the big tech giants. Just the right amount of details to keep it engaging.

Seriously interesting breakdown of Apple told in a super digestible manor.

Well done and interesting. Not your average company profile. Peter Kafka had such a great voice.
GrandMasterJ125 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/03/21
This is an excellent podcast. Team has really delivered on each season. Smart, well produced.love that the factual information. And that production is not overdone with sound effects etc. Yep yep Peter K is excellent.

Peter Kafka is great !

The hosts are very clear and present each season wonderfully. They asked us to guess the next season. I’m thinking they will cover Facebook, but News Corp would be a fascinating topic.

I just found this podcast and I cannot stop listening! Stories about how big companies got where they are now and their impact on our society and culture along the way has always been fascinating to me. Hearing these stories in podcast form with excellent editing and compelling narrators is even...Read full review »

Enjoying every season so far.
BaDOAN via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 10/27/21
Different from earlier seasons of the Podcast, the reporting on Apple is inconsistent and biased. Tell both sides of the the story not simply those that paint a company in a negative light.
NCChzhd via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/27/21
Some of the best content out there…more please
Smiggity Smack via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/23/21
Well-made, interesting ideas…and (speaking about the Apple/iPhone season) a skewed view of tech history. Apple did not invent the smartphone, iPhone is not and never has been the majority smartphone OS worldwide, and any mention of “apps” like Twitter/Facebook existing and shaping the world...Read full review »

Rich perspective. Well researched. Spot on.
D'urville via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/21/21
Since zero is not allowed, I had to go with 1 star. Why would I listen to anything that is all revisionist history, and not presenting facts? They did a WHOLE episode about the iPhone launch and the App Store, and NEVER ONCE MENTIONED WEB APPS?! Instead they try and sell this vision of history...Read full review »

When the “China Problem” is about a Taiwanese company, and no one bothers to point that out, it is either bad journalism or simply bias, or both.
ANTONIO TRIANZI via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/13/21
I just recently found this podcast and I love it! Especially the Apple segment. I follow Apple closely so I know a lot about their products and procedures, but this podcast still has information I didn’t have before. The host is very professional and easy to listen to. I get annoyed quickly with...Read full review »

Even if you already know the general stories of these companies, this podcast goes into great detail and tells the stories in a fresh and entertaining way. Highly recommend if your interested in the past, present and possible future of some of the biggest companies out there. Please keep making...Read full review »

Peter Kafka, who is a terrific reporter, is doing a great job explaining Apple and its leaders. I’m amazed by the number of people he got to talk to him, but the sophistication he brings to the story of Apple is no surprise. If you care at all about what’s behind your Mac or your iPhone, this...Read full review »

Love listening in would love to see more episodes more frequent
Slevo dublin via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 09/29/21
Streaming wars was decent. The newest ‘season’ about Apple is off to a pathetic start. The first episode about the iPhone contains virtually nothing about the creation of the iPhone or why it was so different from the other phone offerings of the time. They then rather mysteriously delved into an...Read full review »

I came to this podcast via Eater and was intending to listen on a long drive to Boston. However I loved the first episode so much that I listened to the entire season in a single morning. Now I look forward to catching the other seasons on the long drive. Thank you for the fascinating and...Read full review »

The show digs dip and gives great insights into the rise of big tech. I am enjoying this a lot!
nor_light via Apple Podcasts · Ukraine · 09/17/21
While one can only appreciate the hard work that’s gone into these series, the fact that many episode descriptions openly compel you to rate them ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ means I can only rate them ⭐️⭐️⭐️
Jim Pinho via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 09/01/21
Every season is fantastic. Loved the way you switched it up a bit in season 4, along with adding a sponsoring organization. Kudos! Looking forward to next season.
kerpan via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/23/21
I will say upfront that I loved the first three seasons of this podcast. However for the fourth season I expected another “giant“ story, Facebook, Apple, Microsoft, not an industry sector served by many companies. Bring back the giant stories next season please.

Pls keep it conversational. The way she enunciated words was sort of annoying.
Stand-Up Guy via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/29/21
Just started this pod on the most recent season about delivery apps. Love hearing Ahmed Ali Akbar’s voice on air as the host, he’s been an amazing podcaster for years and it’s fun to hear him in a new context. The series is very well produced and edited.
steviewonder510 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/25/21
So extremists are always right wing? Ok. Unnecessarily political and incredibly biased.
Sxpack via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/19/21
Hey guys - everyone who works to get this together, Thank you so much for putting various seasons together. Your content is amazing - has varied perspectives, is well researched, and is narrated in a gripping fashion. I look forward to hear it as soon as it arrives. Some feedback - would love if...Read full review »

FASCINATING topic, incredible production value and storytelling. I’ve listened to all of the seasons and the Netflix one is the best by far. Storytelling wasn’t quite as focused with Google and especially the Delivery Wars season, which profiled several companies at once, but I do legitimately...Read full review »

Very interesting topics and made with a lot of effort. To round it up: Super likeable hosts.
Happy Proper via Apple Podcasts · Switzerland · 07/13/21
The series about Google is incredibly eye opening and has introduced me to a company I have grown up with. The realm of inquiry is well defined in each episode and the sum of the series is really emblematic of these past two+ decades. From ideological scrappy start up to military flirting,...Read full review »

This is an amazing podcasts giving an deep insight into how some of the best tech companies have grown into giants we know as today. Love the way the episodes are narrated and researched.
Retnakar via Apple Podcasts · India · 07/06/21
Really interesting look behind the apps (at least I use) on a daily basis. Truly did not know much about this subject and the folks that make up the landscape
salimahfm via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/24/21
I absolutely love this show, just recently discovered it on Spotify but now I just keep listening to it all the time. The best thing about this show is that it takes every perspectives on each topic like a consumer, the middleman, and also star of the show(tech company) side.

Can’t believe this is free

Thank you Vox for this great series

Easily one of the most interesting podcasts around! I have loved every season.
Haley Gianfrancesco via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/02/21
Very interesting to hear the backstory of todays most influential companies.
maverich9 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/28/21
Very well made. Hope the series continues!
#Joni Ive via Apple Podcasts · Philippines · 04/28/21
The people who narrated and did the research for Seasons 1 and 2 were charismatic and talked to the listener like a REAL conversation, not something super scripted. Season 3 is narrated by different people and now the podcast has a totally different vibe. The intonation of their voices sounds so...Read full review »

So the podcast is just boring to listen too.

Land of the Giants is EXCELLENT!! Looking forward to completing the FAANG series. Up next, Microsoft.

It’s very good
farrell777 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/04/21
I am kinda split apart, first two seasons were very good, factual, without resorting to heavy use of opinions, just as a documentary should be. But then, third season turned extreme propaganda mode on, and I had difficulties listening thrugh to the end. Let me just say that I am not supporting...Read full review »

I recommend the other seasons but the latest season featuring Google is mostly pushing a political agenda.
Knoght of Ni via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 04/01/21
Interessant sæson 3 med historien bag og nuværende udfordringer for Google. Men værterne forholder sig sjældent meget kritisk overfor Googles forretningsmodel, så mange af afsnittene ender med mikrofonholderi.
