I am not tech savvy or all that tech interested, but I decided it would be a good thing to educate myself about what the tech industry is doing and where it’s headed. This podcast was a real eye opener for me and made me realize that a lot of the side effects of social media and big tech are not...Read full review »

I stumbled upon this podcast while searching for insight into what built the tech industry. Now I am HOOKED on the intriguing history of Silicon Valley and the folks who pioneered an era of change.

If you’re in tech (or not). These are really interesting stories. Good job Dan!
thomashan via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/23/20
It’s a great podcast, but the repetitive cadence of the host makes it really hard to listen to for prolonged periods.
apodcastaddict via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/20/20
Absolutely brilliant insight into the real people and real stories behind an otherwise unreal universe.
Venn Digital via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 10/08/19
Over produced with too many conflicting talking heads and too American. Sadly not as good as Danny in the Valley which is the definitive tech podcast. Danny in the Valley has an intimacy like a good radio programme where you can imagine yourself being there with friends, In the Pivot you are...Read full review »

By chance found this and liking every bit of it

I loved this, my only gripe is more please. I learned a lot about how Silicon Valley has shaped the tech world. And also how that tech world has influenced the city of San Fran and the world we currently live in. Thank you! Sterling job!

An original flow of addictive story telling. A respectful way of connecting the human to the ‘bummer machine’. Danny extracts the reality of how things are actually having an effect, for good and bad into our society. Listen, learn and tell your friends.

Really enjoyed this and your usual Danny in the Valley podcasts.

I binge listened to all the episodes! Great work 🙌

I'm a big fan of Danny in the Valley, where Danny interviews individuals from Silicon valley. This podcast ups the game even higher with narrative and multiple interviews to deliver the bigger tech story.Read full review »

Danny's background of being born in the Valley and being away from it for awhile gives him a very unique ability to dive into the awesomeness/weirdness of Silicon Valley without the fanboy tinge. If you want to know why Silicon Valley is what it is.. this is the podcast to listen to.Read full review »

Very informative and entertaining. Well narrated and choreographed. One question: What’s the name of the title music? It’s awesome!
nrob87 via Apple Podcasts · Germany · 08/21/19
Listening to Danny in the valley and his tales of Silicon Valley are wonderful podcasts! Highly recommend. It listens as if I’m watching a movie on the way he narrates the stories behind the wonderful companies shaping our future. Listen :)
Facelesstrader via Apple Podcasts · Philippines · 08/18/19
I’m utterly obsessed by this podcast at the minute (as well as Danny’s other podcast ‘Danny in the Valley’). Informative and entertaining - shining a spotlight on what to so many of us is a hidden world... but a world which influences (or even controls) almost every part of our lives and our...Read full review »

A fantastic podcast! Interesting to locals and non-locals alike!!
Ghjkfff via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/02/19
I suscribe to not more than forty podcasts. Many have similar names, similar themes, similar topics. I can only imagine that if those same podcasts were to listen to this one, they would only see red. Mr. Fortson is a trustworthy version of Nick Carraway in that he offers a very telling...Read full review »

I have been listening to Danny in the Valley for a long time and so expected good things from this and was not disappointed. Danny’s presentation style is fantastic and keeps you engaged in the stories - the content itself is also great. I would recommend this podcast for sure and look forward to...Read full review »

Really worth listening to - very interesting and well produced
EEE05 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 07/18/19
I’m always super interested about the latest tech advancements and especially learning about the many players that are moving and shaking things up in that world. That was your last pod series but this brings something different. I’ve always wondered about the origins of much of this stuff and...Read full review »

It is so refreshing to find tech writing that is intelligent and skeptical... too many fanboys in this weird tech ecosystem we inhabit. Fortson is certainly not one of them, and the first episode is exactly the kind of smart narrative journalism i miss. Looking forward to the rest!

Great first podcast in a series from a fantastic Times journalist. You can tell it's just limbering up for some big punches as the series evolves!Read full review »

Danny’s podcasts are always great to hear and keep me want to hear what’s next! Very good past time, especially when on the drive!

Loving this, for anyone interested in technology and how it all started this is the podcast for you.

I heard about this podcast from listening to Danny in the Valley and it did not disappoint. Definitely recommend!

I really enjoyed the first episode. Can’t wait to hear more!!

Such an interesting series!
SHAUN VB via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/11/19
A fascinatingly fresh take on how Silicon Valley came to be. The host makes a strong argument as to why the world should know more about the origins and trajectory of the ongoing digital revolution. Those lessons are especially critical now, with so much technological potential again on the verge...Read full review »

Love this podcast! Looking forward to hearing more in this series. A nice complement to Danny in the Valley
Hibbs4 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/11/19
As someone who was born and raised in The Valley, I have witnessed first hand how the technological paradigm shift has shaped and influenced the Bay Area. A little too young for Pong, but thanks for bringing the Atari 2600 back to the surface of my memories. Video games were a huge part of my...Read full review »

Great breakdown of the silcon valley world and its history. I want more of it. Way more. DF usually sells a no BS brand of journalism and once again delivers. And in a fun way.
Niko Hronopoulos via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/11/19
Danny Fortson is a journalist we can count on to tell the story that is fair and balanced. No spin. Just the facts. He gives the listener and reader the opportunity to connect with the story by asking the right questions and not interrupting the answer.
Ahronopoulos via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/11/19
You walk around with a computer that fits in your pocket. This will help you understand how we got here. Check out Danny in the Valley if you like even more tech talk.

Love Danny in the Valley - please don’t go The Pivot is his Fabulous heritage, produced brilliantly #hooked
Speesie via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 07/11/19
So much great unknown by me information.
Ms. Mssaey1 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/11/19
Love this. It was like an episode of the Daily but lighthearted and tech driven. The production was dope. Also leaned into my nostalgia. Pong was never a thing in my life but the Atari 2600? Bruh. That joint changed my life. It’s a natural companion to Danny in the Valley.
Zen Grey via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/10/19
The trailer has me hooked. Great storytelling from a great storyteller.
