Mostly politics disguised as tech
I’m changing my long time rating from 5 to 1, would be 1/2 if able. I left Kai Ryssdal’s Marketplace podcast just after he took a hard left when Trump was elected. I stopped my hundreds of dollar donations then but kept on with Tech but today when Ms. Wood mentioned the president doing something untoward with no evidence or context that was the last straw. Her interviews have an agenda. I’m very interested in tech not opinion. I can go to CNN or MSNBC if I want reporters to give me their opinion. I went back several times to see if Mr. Ryssdal moved back center (where I thought he was during the Obama years) but nope. He’s full of hatred of our country and president just like Ms. Wood is not exhibiting. I unsubscribed today. It’s a shame because I have heard some great things about tech from some of the folks who were able to talk about tech and not politics. Since NPR has lost the “Public” from its existence they can go get the cash they need from companies they support. I’ll work to end taxpayer subsidy for shows like this. The best episodes seem to be done by stand in hosts. After six years I’m walking away from this now dysfunctional podcast.

The host seems biased on whatever topic he is covering based on his questions and approach. Since this is not presented as an opinion piece, I find this annoying. It's not...Read full review »

The focus now seems to be not on the interesting topic of ideas and tech's intersection with the world but instead on silicon valley and the cult of personality specifically. The host also injects herself and her views into the topics and narratives to an extent that is distracting and...Read full review »
