There’s a lot of truth to Brian’s notion that cable is increasingly a “conversation about the news” rather than solely reporting the news itself. I like hi optimism about what we can do once we accept that premise.
I’ve enjoyed Casey’s work for a while now and appreciate it even more after hearing this conversation. I really like what he said about the power that journalism has to hold tech companies accountable.
The current business model of Facebook - more time on the platform leads to higher profit - combined with the observation that outrage increases the time we spend on social media sites makes this a really insightful conversation.
I’m speechless and heartbroken! If you aren’t familiar with the details of this Theranos progression and Elizabeth Holmes investigation, I highly recommend you listen to this podcast from the beginning of the series.
I've been getting into meditation and heart rate variability training. Yuval blocks out 30 to 60 days a year for meditation and then builds his calendar around it. Super interesting and the results show in his work.
I really enjoyed this conversation with Jonathan Haidt. I know he’s been on a ton of podcasts but this one is a little different than what he’s been doing lately. Would love to hear what you all think!
