Kara Swisher is acting as if she Uber’s PR director. Horrible podcast, horrible journalism.

Devastated that this podcast is stopping. Don’t know where I’ll get my Swisher-fix!

I enjoy the podcast. It was surprising to hear Alexis Coe slagging off other Washington scholars by name. I am less likely to accept the opinions of a scholar who promotes their own thesis by mocking others. She also appears to be viewing many aspects of her topics through a personalized, Twitter...Read full review »

I’ve been teaching HS for 30 years. It was awesome to hear Louie’s take today. I think you need to do a weekly 10-15 minute slot with him and maybe one of his friends.

Great job, Kara. Very fine interview with Joh Meacham. Really enjoyed a thoughtful and interesting discussion. Exactly what a good podcast is all about. A great guest and a great interviewer. :) Chris

I love the content of the podcasts, but the host ruins the listening experience.

There are too many ads for this podcast. I don’t want to listen to it.

The Swisher Bullet Bandwagon is going straight to the top. The new representation got to work really quickly. Let’s hope it does not lead to over saturating the media market. God speed Tiger Queen.

OMG. My two favorite journalists on the same podcast. This interview is FIRE!!!
Djm2516 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/27/20
I love the topics and love the guests. But it is hard to listen as many many times the guest cannot finish sentence without Kara talking over them. Also all the “mmms” and “right right” are distracting. I listen to it sometimes to inspire me to interrupt less myself as I know I do this too. I get...Read full review »

Kara’s not just a random interviewer - this show is about having a real conversation and her contribution is key. Great change from journalists who simply allow guests to babble on and sell whatever they’re hyping at the moment. Keep talking, interrupting, challenging and yes - disrupting! Go...Read full review »

I really enjoyed the interview with Mark Cuban. I am a new listener to the show. Kara is a good interviewer and I like the personality she brings to this format. Smart, but doesn’t take herself too seriously. I like that she includes the listeners by asking their questions as part of the show and...Read full review »

Huge fan of Kara and her insight into so many industries. But please, for the love of God, let your guests finish their sentences and full thoughts! Still, your interview with Zuckerberg is iconic
BernieBro420 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/21/20
Great guests and I like that Swisher isn't afraid to ask tough questions. However, she's always talking over her guests, trying to finish their sentences (often getting corrected since she gets it wrong), and cannot let any smart point pass without pointing out that she said/wrote that...Read full review »

She is opinionated and talks over her guests and tells them what she thinks is best for them. Listened to the Edward Snowden interview and I won’t be back. Snowden is very patient no matter how often she interrupted but by the end of the interview I think he was done with her. I know I am.
Wise-Orphan via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/18/20
Why do you have guests on when all you really want is to hear yourself talk over them?! Someone writes a book you are interested in, but you don’t let them freely share their work. You clearly know a lot. Let your questions be smart and insightful, instead of trying to answer the question rather...Read full review »

Thank you for interesting and intelligent interviews. Very inspiring.
Bluewarsaw via Apple Podcasts · Poland · 04/16/20
Did Jeff give you free subscription for live. That was a boring interview listening to an advertisement for his new venture. Ugh
like satie via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/16/20
Too bad that the host of this podcast takes every opportunity to upstage every guest and try and show that she knows more than the guest.
bellamydm via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/15/20
I love Kara Swisher! She’s fierce and inspirational. Funny & insighful
ari218_ via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 04/13/20
Simply one of my top 3 podcasts! Actually it’s like I have three different number 1’s all depending on my thirst at the moment. Intellectual, tech, social media and trends tied to business and life, when that’s what I want to hear (which I often do) this is a key source I look to so keep em coming!
piankhi via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/11/20
Engrossing interviews with the shortest of questions prompting a baring of all that helps make sense of the world, no show just action! Thank you

Brilliant speech of Deepak 🙏😇
ananda21 via Apple Podcasts · Austria · 04/05/20
This show is a great listen. Kara Swisher is an experienced, knowledgeable host with a long history of San Francisco tech journalism. I love that she is not afraid to jump in and use her voice. She has a style that is pointed, and she has built a reputation among the tech community as a person...Read full review »

I discover this podcast through « The Ringer Bill Simmons Podcast ». I like all different subject Tech, Economics, Politics. Kara like Bill is amazing interviewer. You can listen all her knowledge. Frankly I would like French reporters do the same. Thank you Kara

Loved Karen’s interview with Deepak. She didn’t interrupt him as much as she does with her other guest.
Sunny Wunder via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/28/20
Nothing else quite on topic/trend with this level of contributors available for free. Impressive

Too much advertisement
sol et goblet via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 03/23/20
I love Kara and I’ll listen to anything she has to say. Please please Vox stop these T Mobile and low quality advertising. It’s infuriating
Maggieoc4270oc via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/19/20
I have heardKara complain she has to step over homeless people get out her door, but no mention of the Democrat/Lefty’s policies that put them on her stoop! Instead, every episode is a Trump bashing fest. How leftist and loving!
Joey in NJ via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/15/20
I echo the same comment I see frequently ~ not just interrupting, but the non-stop “mmm hmm”, “right”, “uh huh”, “yup”. So distracting. And I’m sorry but when you have an expert in their field state a simple fact you do not need to confirm they are correct with “Right”. It sounds like you are...Read full review »
User3789 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/12/20
Great content with amazing guests but Kara’s interview style does get under my skin. It would be best if she let guests finish their thoughts instead of always interjecting to say “we will get to that later” or “bla bla bla but go ahead”. It feels like everyone is being rushed and it can be...Read full review »
veganvacay via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 03/09/20
Love the content of the podcast. Every time I see a subject I think “this could be interesting” and it surpasses my expectations. Kara’s enthusiasm is shown but the constant interruptions from her take away from the conversations with the guests. She’s knowledgeable about all the topics covered...Read full review »
GreySkies15 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/06/20
This is a very difficult podcast to listen to, and that is true for one simple reason. Kara Swisher has the personality of an I flushed toilet, and every comment she makes and question she asks of her guests reveal that truth. It will never reach the achievement of a truly popular podcast because...Read full review »
MainJeffers via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/04/20
Good topics and clearly an insightful presenter but please let people finish their sentences! It sounds like you’re rushing people. The irony is that it makes it all longer overall. If she could keep just 20% of her thoughts to herself/wait until her guests have finished this would be a far more...Read full review »

Every episode is sharp and fascinating. Love it 👌
Hobbit haven via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 02/28/20
Excellent guests, but the interruption of every single guest really sours my opinion on the podcast. Can someone please get through to Kara and let her know that her interviewing “style” is awful?
TJJJJJ481 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/24/20
It's weird. It seems like you were trying to get Steven Levy to join in on your Mark Zuckerberg bashing and took joy seeing Mark down. A bit to personal.Read full review »

Used to wait for AllThingsD and Recode conferences to hear Kara interview people. So easy now. Thank you for doing this podcast. Bring Walt just once!
groundtruth via Apple Podcasts · France · 02/24/20
Holy moly I can’t believe this host can’t let her guests finish their thoughts. It’s all the more frustrating since the guests are super interesting. Great topics, great guests, but let them freaking talk! It’s headache-inducing to have the constant interruptions.
STL------56 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/24/20
The podcast has great topics and guests, but Kara needs to intern with Terry Gross to improve her interviewing technique. She has definite routes she wants various segments of her interviews to go, but instead of prefacing and directing her questions to elicit the information she wants, she...Read full review »

Listening to this podcast is a similar experience. Kara is...Read full review »

Host interrupts and finishes guests’ sentences making it too annoying to listen to often.

She interrupts all the time and acts like she’s better than everyone. Bad host.
