Listen in every week as John Edgar and Owen Williams break down the biggest issues in the tech industry. In short episodes, you'll get the best briefing you possibly can on trends in technology.
A month ago, Owen wrote a post about why Snapchat was going to fail that reached more than 500,000 views – but Taylor Lorenz, a freelance technology journalist, disagreed with him on Twitter. She joins us to talk about why Snapchat's actually good, and how it has a bright future despite everything that's going on.
We discuss the toxic workplace culture at Uber and sexism in tech – and interview a special guest, Ben Uretsky, CEO of DigitalOcean on how they're building an intentional 'no assholes' culture. Also discussion on Cloudflare's huge security issue, Amazon Echo being used in a murder case and more.
OK, we talk about Snapchat A LOT, but the company is finally going public, so we dig into what that means and whether or not they're a viable 'thing' in the long term.
2017 isn't off to a great start, even for technology. We talk over Facebook's latest moves to kill Snapchat, how 3DTV is over completely, the doomsday clock ticking forward and a whole lot more.
John and Owen meet up IRL in New York to bring you this week's podcast full of talk about how badass Elon Musk is, Apple's $300 book and how interested Peter Thiel is in young people's blood.
Keep up with the latest, just like people from these smart companies
