I love Pivot. By themselves kara and Scott are too strong but together they are wonderful. They each have a great deal of expertise and I love their takes on important issues. Thanks!

If you want to follow a "Ship" that's like the Titanic then listen to the very intelligent Kara and Scott. You will come out of this podcast dirty but smarter.

Initial interest was for KS but ended up for staying SG. For now. Getting over KS at the speed of light.

Description

Every Tuesday and Friday, tech journalist Kara Swisher and NYU Professor Scott Galloway offer sharp, unfiltered insights into the biggest stories in tech, business, and politics. They make bold predictions, pick winners and losers, and bicker and banter like no one else. After all, with great power comes great scrutiny. From New York Magazine and the Vox Media Podcast Network.
