This podcast and the associated newsletter are how I stay current with the most important topics in technology and its social and political consequences. It is sophisticated, thoughtful, and of-the-moment in a way few other media are.
Utterly fascinating and indispensable
This is the best podcast that exists that spans technology and innovation to touch on essential questions of society, business politics, economics and more. Great guests and brilliant questions. A pure delight.
A rare find
In a natural and engaging way, Azeem takes conversations deeper and covers new ground with highly influential people. I subscribe to several podcasts on AI, tech, startups and society, and this is my new go-to.
