Analyist Opinion Hammer

I want to like this podcast, I like Ben Thompson on other podcasts I've heard him on, I think James has a lot of well considered things to say. Unfortunately on this show Ben assumes the persona of a late night conspiracy peddler bullying his cohost with a staccato of opinion. There is no subtlety to his monologues and he seems disinterested in considering other perspectives. Ben is a hammer and everything is a nail.

Truly insightful tech business analysis

Wow. I listen to a lot of podcasts, and these guys are really the best. They go beyond the superficial, consider multiple sides of every argument, and embrace ambiguity. If you like nuance and want an interpretation of tech that isn’t cookie-cutter, this is your best choice. Two smart guys with the gift of gab, deeply versed in the subject, who often disagree but respect each other’s positions and are open to changing their own.


Sometimes a bit redundant, but you’ll always learn something.
