Pulitzer worthy
If there’s a Pulitzer for aw shucks credulity the guy from the Times should win it. In discussing reporting done by his colleagues (who incidentally should pants him by the water cooler imo) that unmasked a cabal of billionaires buying up land to start a private city outside of San Francisco, his take was essentially, I believe they have good intentions! Like why? Why do you think that? There idea is essentially, democratically run society is annoying, what if rather than paying our fair share of taxes and thereby helping to improve it, we just start a feudal society on our own private land! and you think they have good intentions? Also, In an earlier episode about self driving cars he cited a study paid for by the self driving cars company! I mean, yes he said it was paid for by them, but how can you bring that up? Do you have a trove of examples of studies made public that found against the companies that funded them? Am I missing something? Also in the latest episode the other guy says it’s crazy that it’s easier to build Uber in SF than a condo complex. Is it crazy? Building a condo complex requires dealing with supply chains, tens or hundreds of human beings working with literal bricks and mortar, the to my mind not insane regulations that ensure those workers won’t die, and later that the building won’t fall down and kill its inhabitants etc. building Uber requires what? A bad idea and access to capital through friends of yo ur parents? Deep breathing. I’m gonna have a heart attack. . One star. But a second star because the sound quality is good and the second guy sometimes makes me laugh.

Wish you had pushed the conveniently fragile Elon on his COVID stance as it relates to the thousand of people who build his glorious machines. Threat of shutting down the interview is his problem. Don’t take the bluff. Love what you do Kara. Please plow on.

It’s disrespectful to talk over your guest, over and over again, especially when you’re interviewing Speaker Pelosi. I have no interest in listing to Kara take a combative, abrasive approach toward people who deserve better. Kara, if you can take a more respectful, calm approach to your...Read full review »
