One big tech fanboy puff piece
I came to this because one of the hosts made the podcast Rabbit Hole which I found incredibly informative and critical on all the things deserving criticism in the tech industry. This podcast, however, is just a soulless regurgitation of everything tech companies say about themselves, with barely any critical analysis or understanding that a massive amount of the tech world is scams or scam adjacent. For these guys, if it has AI in it, or if it’s a self driving car, or if it’s a new social media network, they love it and have practically nothing to say beyond positives about it. Even apps like twitter or companies like meta, who have long standing track records of emphasizing conflict and conspiracy theories to make money, and in doing so have invited genocides like the one in Myanmar and revolts like Jan 6, are perfect in their eyes and they always focus on how they “bring people together”, just saying the blatantly untrue PR talk that these companies put out themselves. In the latest episode they interview anti automated vehicle activists and disagree with them on everything, saying that public transport doesn’t work and “it’s just easier to call an Uber then anything else”, ignoring the fact that most people can’t do that since they’re really expensive and the whole argument of the activists was that this focus on cars in general is damaging our communities. Thought it would be better, but I guess they’re just as bought into the inherent good of all of these massively toxic companies as the people running the companies are. So yeah, don’t listen. Unless you just want to hear some mediocre jokes, whitewashing of awful companies and bad products, and a whole lot of wealthy tech bro privilege.

So refreshing to hear Gov. Newsom and his positive and balanced outlook amidst so many challenges. His leadership in action is exceptional as is his inclusive way of engaging others of different points of view and political persuasions to work together is what this country needs more of to get...Read full review »
