Show notes

Kara Swisher is host of On with Kara Swisher and co-host of the Pivot podcast. She’s also editor-at-large of New York Magazine…and the former host of the Sway and Recode Decode podcasts and the co-founder of the technology website, Recode. Kara has been reporting on the industry since the early 1990s. Once called “Silicon Valley's most feared but revered journalist," she’s established herself as the oracle of the tech world with unrivaled access to the industry's most significant leaders. Her new book, BURN BOOK: A TECH LOVE STORY, is described as “a witty, scathing, but fair accounting of the tech industry and its founders who wanted to change the world but broke it instead”. It’s scheduled for release March 5, 2024.

Kara's back in The Back Room for another fun, insightful, no-holds-barred chat about the $8.5-billion Summer of Barbie, Beyonce and Taylor Swift; "Scott-free August" and her very impressive son Louis' recent Pivot appearance; the Burning Man mess; Donald Trump's legal troubles; Elon Musk, his recent anti-Semitic/anti-ADL rhetoric, and the future of Twitter; her upcoming new book, Burn Book: A Tech Love Story (3/5/24) and its bad-ass cover photo; and more! You're gonna love this chat with one of the planet's smartest, most unique, engaging media voices.
