Inside Silicon Valley

I would encourage every parent and grandparent to listen to the podcast where Vanity Fair’s Nick Bilton interviews Dennis Crowley, founder of Foursquare. The company is a local search and discovery service.

Many of your children and grandchildren use it to let their friends and family know where they are. Once they “check in,” Foursquare is working on providing users with more in-depth information they need to know to maximize their experience.

The reason why this podcast is so unique is because most of us do not know how it feels to start a digital company, the challenges along the way,  and when to exit. This is a true Silicon Valley insider’s story. The podcast reflects how important the journey is and how entrepreneurs find their energy in doing what they love best.

Inside Tech: An Industry Podcast 

Uber’s Travis Cordell Kalanick, Kara Swisher of Recode, and Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook.

Vanity Fair’s tech expert Nick Bilton just did a remarkable podcast with Kara Swisher, the legendary technology reporter and co-founder of Recode. The two of them dish about leading members of the tech industry in ways you never heard before and Kara talks about her intentions to run for Mayor of San Francisco. 

It’s fun listening to them banter about their personal lives and what they really think of Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook, Travis Kalanick of Uber, Steve Jobs of Apple, Bill Gates of Microsoft, and others. Find out about which CEO has panic attacks before interviews, which one has an inferiority complex and the one they dislike the most. 

I truly can’t believe they revealed so much, including information about their personal lives, career desires, and challenges at work. I felt like I was eavesdropping. It was interesting to hear their opinions and insights.
