    enMay 26, 2023

    Podcast Summary

    • The Subconscious Influence of Power on HairstylesPower can subconsciously impact individuals' behavior, even in trivial matters such as hair, leading them to adopt unconventional styles as a means of expressing their authority.

      Power can influence people's behavior, even in seemingly trivial matters like hair. The conversation starts with a lighthearted exchange about hair, but it evolves into a discussion about how individuals close to power often exhibit more eccentric hairstyles. The examples of Graydon Carter, Steve Bannon, and Donald Trump are cited as evidence. The conversation also touches on the concept of self-care and how it can become increasingly important when dealing with intense situations. Overall, the conversation highlights the idea that power can have a subconscious effect on individuals, causing them to express themselves in unconventional ways.

    • Twitter Spaces: A Revolutionary Platform for Presidential AnnouncementsThe use of Twitter spaces for a presidential announcement showcased the power of social media platforms, citizen journalism, and audio formats in shaping public discourse while challenging traditional media.

      The use of Twitter spaces for a presidential announcement was a groundbreaking and innovative approach. Despite technical difficulties and overwhelming interest, the event attracted over 700,000 people and reached a new level of scale. This demonstrated the power of social media platforms like Twitter in divorcing ourselves from traditional mainstream media and allowing direct access to the source. The event showcased the potential of citizen journalism, podcasting, and audio formats in shaping public discourse. Additionally, the calm and composed demeanor of DeSantis during the technical difficulties highlighted his ability to roll with the punches and maintain his focus on the announcement. Overall, this event marked an important moment in reevaluating the role of traditional media and embracing new communication channels.

    • The Power of Digital Platforms in Revolutionizing PoliticsDirect access to candidates and substantive discussions are vital for informed decision-making, highlighting the need for a shift in modern democracy away from traditional media reliance.

      Traditional media outlets reacted with negativity and sensationalism towards Elon Musk's political rally, but the actual response from viewers and voters was much more positive. Despite technical difficulties and delayed start, millions of people were engaged and activated to hear what was being said. This event provided a platform for long-form discussions and deeper understanding of political candidates, rather than relying on short sound bites and advertisements. It highlighted the need for a shift in modern democracy, where voters can have direct access to candidates and make informed decisions based on substantive discussions rather than manipulated messages. This conversation demonstrated the power of digital platforms in revolutionizing politics and challenging the dominance of traditional media.

    • The Importance of Meaningful Engagement in PoliticsEngaging directly with political candidates and seeking out substantial content is crucial in making well-informed decisions, rather than relying on superficial campaign tactics.

      There is a need for more meaningful engagement with political candidates in order to make better-informed decisions. It is highlighted that the current political landscape is driven by driving narratives, sound bites, and emotional reactions, which may not provide a comprehensive understanding of a candidate's policies and perspectives. The conversation discusses the importance of platforms like podcasts and Twitter for politicians to directly communicate with the public and for individuals to consume content that allows for a deeper evaluation. There is a suggestion to have more uncensored and challenging discussions, where candidates can address questions from a diverse range of people, including those who may hold differing political views. Ultimately, the conversation emphasizes the potential for more inclusive and informative political events and encourages individuals to seek out substantial content rather than relying on superficial campaign tactics.

    • The significance of Twitter Spaces discussion and the challenge of managing high-profile participants like Elon Musk.Allowing traditionally unheard voices to participate in discussions and clarifying controversies can enhance the impact of events like Twitter Spaces.

      Powerful people showed up for the Twitter Spaces discussion, indicating its significance. The presence of influential individuals like Bill Ackman and Elon Musk highlights the interest and potential impact of the event. However, managing such a format with high-profile participants like Elon can be a challenge, as people have various expectations and want the opportunity to ask questions. It is suggested that allowing other individuals, traditionally not given the chance, to participate and ask questions could be beneficial. Additionally, the conversation touched on the controversy surrounding book banning in Florida, clarifying that while no books have been banned, there is a discussion about what is taught in the curriculum and included in school libraries.

    • The Debate Over Book Inclusion in School Curricula and the Importance of Understanding Different Perspectives.It is crucial to engage in thoughtful discussions and consider different viewpoints rather than immediately dismissing opposing opinions or jumping to extreme conclusions.

      There is a debate surrounding the inclusion and exclusion of certain books in school curricula. The right argues that it is not censorship but rather a necessary choice to limit the curriculum. The left frames it as book banning, while the truth is that these books are not being used in specific age groups but can still be accessed by parents outside of school. This discussion revolves around the idea of parental control and deciding what is appropriate for their children. Additionally, the media's role in shaping narratives and deliberately disqualifying politicians like DeSantis is highlighted. The conversation emphasizes the need for thoughtful discussions and understanding different perspectives rather than jumping to extreme conclusions or dismissing opposing viewpoints.

    • The US debt ceiling dilemma: Exploring potential consequences, credit downgrades, and the debate over utilizing the 14th amendment.The 14th amendment may provide a possible solution for the US debt ceiling issue, but its implementation could have both positive and negative effects on governance and fiscal policies.

      The US debt ceiling is a pressing concern with potential consequences for the economy. The Treasury Department's recent warning about the inability to pay bills by June 1 and Fitch putting the US credit rating on negative watch highlight the seriousness of the situation. However, there is disagreement on the impact of credit downgrades, with some dismissing their significance. The conversation also explores the possibility of President Biden utilizing the 14th amendment to pass a budget via executive order, bypassing Congress. This move would have both benefits and drawbacks, allowing future presidents to avoid being held hostage by Congress but potentially undermining consensus-building and exacerbating spending or austerity tendencies. Ultimately, it is uncertain whether the 14th amendment can be a viable solution to the debt ceiling dilemma.

    • Addressing concerns over government spending and the debt limit through a more efficient budget process and responsible decision-making.The US government needs to prioritize transparency, accountability, and responsible decision-making to tackle economic challenges like deficits and debt accumulation effectively.

      There are concerns about the government's spending and the debt limit. It is clear that there is a need for a more efficient budget process to address these issues. One suggestion is to raise the debt limit before spending, so that Congress has to vote on whether they want a deficit or debt spend before deciding how much to spend. Additionally, there is a growing risk in the US due to the large deficits and debt accumulation, which can lead to inflation and crowding out of private investment. The conversation also highlights the lack of accountability in defense spending and the influence of the military-industrial complex. Overall, there is a need for greater transparency and responsible decision-making to address the economic challenges facing the country.

    • Lack of Accountability: Addressing Fiscal Disparities and Unchecked Spending in the Federal GovernmentThe federal government's lack of accountability in fiscal management, with unbalanced budgets and unchecked military spending, calls for revenue limitation, spending guidelines, and sensible foreign policies, despite opposition to austerity measures.

      There is a lack of accountability in how the federal government operates its fiscal condition. Despite huge budget disparities, with the military receiving significantly more funding than other essential services, the government struggles to provide basic services to its citizens. The Pentagon's inability to pass an audit and the acceptance of unbalanced budgets demonstrate this issue of accountability. Additionally, the allocation of funds for optional wars, such as in Ukraine, being treated as separate from the defense budget, allows for unchecked spending. To address this problem, there needs to be a focus on revenue limitation by minimizing taxation while also implementing spending guidelines and sensible foreign policies. However, discussions of austerity and cutting benefits face significant opposition.

    • Exploring Different Approaches to Tackling Budget Deficit and Government RevenueThe debate over addressing budget deficit and government revenue revolves around refinancing debt, utilizing inflation, minimizing government revenue, or controlling spending and avoiding high tax rates to encourage economic activity.

      There are differing opinions on how to address the budget deficit and government revenue. David Friedberg emphasizes the need to refinance debt and push out maturities, as well as taking advantage of inflation to pay off short-term maturities. He also suggests minimizing government revenue. On the other hand, others, like John Quincy Adams, argue for balancing the budget and starving the beast by controlling spending instead of raising taxes. They believe that high tax rates can curtail economic activity and incentivize wealthy individuals to find ways to avoid or leave the country. Ultimately, the conversation highlights the ongoing debate between different approaches to addressing the budget deficit and funding government programs.

    • Examining the Lack of Accountability and Transparency in Government Spending and the Need for ReformGovernment spending must be evaluated more rigorously to ensure it delivers tangible benefits, and increased scrutiny and fact-checking are necessary to address the influence of special interests and wasted funds.

      There is a lack of accountability and transparency in government spending, leading to a significant amount of wasted funds. While some programs may have positive impacts, such as TARP and DOE loans for companies like Tesla, they represent only a minority of the dollars allocated. The rest of the money often ends up in the pockets of shareholders, donors, and employees without driving job growth or productivity. The conversation highlights the need for a more rigorous evaluation of government programs and their returns. It also exposes the influence of special interests and lobbying in decision-making processes. To address this issue, there is a call for increased scrutiny, fact-checking, and a focus on spending that delivers tangible benefits.

    • Examining Wealth Transfer, Social Programs, and the Role of Entrepreneurship in the United StatesWhile social programs aim to benefit those in need, wealth transfer also extends to sectors like corporate welfare. The United States' entrepreneurial drive plays a vital role in economic resilience, requiring focus on the bigger picture rather than minor disagreements.

      There is a system of wealth transfer happening through social programs, but the question is whether the wealth is going to the intended groups. It is acknowledged that the transfer of wealth benefits individuals in need and supports those who society intends to help, but it is not just limited to poor individuals. Corporate welfare and special interests also benefit from this system. However, the discussion also highlights the importance of entrepreneurship and capitalism in bailing out the country during economic crises. The United States has a vibrant entrepreneurial drive that allows it to build global corporations, which contributes to its economic resilience. Despite concerns about deficits and spending, the focus should be on the larger picture rather than fighting over small percentages.

    • Nvidia's GPUs and the AI-driven data center boom fuel its success and contribute to US economic growth.Nvidia's dominance in GPUs and the rising demand for AI training models highlights the significant role of GPUs in driving economic growth while raising concerns about high valuation and potential competition.

      Nvidia's dominance in GPUs and the boom in AI-driven data centers are significant factors driving the company's success and America's economic growth. The conversation highlights the increasing demand for GPUs in training AI models and the shift towards businesses building their own data centers. This surge in demand has led to Nvidia's stock price rising and its market cap surpassing one trillion dollars. However, concerns arise regarding the high valuation and potential competition in the market. The conversation emphasizes the importance of understanding the role of GPUs in AI technology and the opportunities they present for both Nvidia and the American economy.

    • Phased Approach to Value Creation in AI: From Chip Companies to Device and Software CompaniesThe real profits in the AI market are not in chip-making but in device and software companies, but it takes time for the value to shift from one to the other.

      The value creation in the field of AI follows a phased approach, similar to the mobile internet market. Initially, chip companies like Nvidia are the ones to benefit, as they provide the fundamental capabilities required for AI applications. However, as the market matures, the profits in chip-making get distributed among various competitors, leading to compressed margins. The real value accrues to device companies like Google, Facebook, and Apple, as well as software and services companies. These companies establish a strong moat and create significant profits. It is important to recognize that this process takes time, usually around five to seven years. Therefore, while the hype around chip companies like Nvidia may be significant in the short term, the smart money will eventually move to the next opportunity.

    • The Uncertainty Surrounding the Acquisition of Figma by AdobeThe decision for Adobe to acquire Figma for $20 billion is uncertain, as market conditions, availability of alternative solutions, and generative AI impact its viability.

      The speakers touched on various topics ranging from lawsuits to fashion to hair styles. However, amidst the casual banter, the conversation eventually focused on the acquisition of Figma by Adobe. There was a discussion about whether Adobe should proceed with the $20 billion acquisition or reconsider due to changing market conditions and the availability of alternative solutions. The speakers debated the possibilities of replicating Figma's features and the potential impact of generative AI on catching up with its feature set. Additionally, the conversation mentioned the slowdown in VC funding, which could affect the spending habits of companies. Ultimately, the key takeaway is that the viability of the Figma acquisition by Adobe is uncertain and depends on various factors such as market dynamics and alternative solutions.

    • The Contrasting Realities of Silicon Valley: Thriving AI Startups and Struggling Non-AI StartupsWhile AI startups continue to attract investment, non-AI startups face challenges in a tough economic environment. Investors are becoming more cautious and expect to see revenue and standard metrics before providing substantial funding. Startups should focus on cost-cutting and realistic growth strategies.

      The current state of Silicon Valley and tech industry is a tale of two cities. On one hand, AI startups are thriving and attracting a lot of investment, creating a frothy and potentially bubbly market. On the other hand, non-AI startups, especially those that raised significant funding in the past, are struggling in a tough economic environment. Sales are slipping, deals are taking longer, and buyers are becoming more cost-conscious. AI startups still have the advantage of being able to attract investment based on the dream rather than solid metrics, but cautiousness is starting to set in. As funding rounds progress, investors increasingly expect to see revenue and standard metrics before providing substantial funding. The conversation also highlights the risks of overvaluing startups and the importance of cost-cutting and realistic growth strategies.

    • Understanding Venture Capital and Alternative Models for Business SuccessFounders must consider their growth rate and eligibility for venture capital, and be strategic in their approach to funding and growth by assessing alternative models and ensuring experienced board members guide them through challenges.

      Founders need to understand their eligibility for venture capital and be aware of alternative models that can make their business work. If a startup is only growing at a moderate pace, it may not be VC backable and should consider pivoting towards becoming a cash flow positive business. It is important for founders to assess their growth rate and determine if they can continue to be VC backed. Furthermore, board governance plays a crucial role in a company's success, and founders should be cautious about who they appoint to their boards. In challenging times, having experienced board members who understand the industry and potential obstacles can provide valuable guidance. Overall, this conversation highlights the need for founders to be strategic and adaptable in their approach to funding and growth.

    • Building Resilience and Integrity in the Face of FailureResilience is essential in Silicon Valley. Separating personal identity from work and seeking support from loved ones can help navigate difficult times and pave the way for future success.

      Many entrepreneurs and investors are experiencing the pressure of declining value and uncertainty in the market. It is important to acknowledge that this pain is not unique and that failure is a normal part of the process in Silicon Valley. How individuals handle these difficult times and maintain integrity and thoughtfulness towards others speaks to their character and ability. Building resilience during times of failure is essential, as it sets one up for success in the future. Separating one's identity from their startup and finding balance outside of work can help mitigate the devastation when things go wrong. Despite the challenging circumstances, it is crucial to continue pushing forward and surrounding oneself with loved ones for support.

    • The Importance of Resilience in Entrepreneurship and InvestingSuccess in entrepreneurship and investing requires resilience and persistence, as failures and setbacks are common. However, by staying focused and seizing moments of success, one can ultimately overcome challenges and achieve growth.

      In entrepreneurship and investing, it's vital to stay in the game and keep grinding. Success often comes after a series of failures and setbacks. Just like in poker, where a mid-level player is expected to reach the final table in only 1% of tournaments, entrepreneurs and investors must be resilient in the face of numerous losses and setbacks. Even though most outcomes may not be home runs, it's important to keep building, stay focused, and seize those few punctuated moments of success that can make up for all the challenges. Distribution and reaching millions of users is crucial for a successful consumer product, and finding the right partnerships and opportunities can help achieve that growth.

    • Navigating the Shifting Tides of Entrepreneurship in Silicon ValleyDespite challenges and setbacks, entrepreneurs and investors can still thrive by adapting their mindset and approach, remaining optimistic, and making necessary adjustments for future growth.

      Silicon Valley is currently experiencing a shift in entrepreneurial psychology. Many individuals who have had repeated successes in the past are now facing challenges and setbacks. The traditional formula for success no longer seems to work, leading to frustration and a heavy blanket of humility. However, despite these struggles, there is still room for progress and innovation in the future. While the tides have shifted, opportunities to build and innovate are not disappearing. It's important for entrepreneurs and investors to adapt their mindset and approach in order to navigate through this challenging time. By remaining optimistic, putting on their game faces, and making necessary adjustments, they can increase their chances of survival and future growth.

    • The Exceptional Quality and Desirability of Tesla's CarsTesla's Model Y is highly praised and predicted to be the best-selling car in America. The conversation also highlights admiration for the original roadster and model S signature series, as well as excitement for upcoming cyber truck and roadster models.

      The model Y car from Tesla is highly praised and considered to be the best car ever made. It is predicted to be the best-selling car in America, with its affordable base price and incentives. The conversation also highlights the admiration for the original roadster and model S signature series, with some individuals receiving significant offers for their numbered editions. Additionally, there is excitement and anticipation for the upcoming cyber truck and roadster models. Overall, this conversation emphasizes the exceptional quality and desirability of Tesla's cars, as well as the speaker's passion for collecting and enjoying these vehicles.

    Humanitarian campaigns in social media: network architectures and Kony 2012 as a polymedia event
    An assessment of the optimism surrounding the opportunities that social media offer for humanitarian action, drawing on analysis of the phenomenally popular and controversial Kony 2012 campaign. In early March 2012 the Kony 2012 viral video took the world by storm. Attracting over 70 million views in less than a week from its release it was equally criticized and admired as an example of the power of social media. In this talk Madianou assesses the optimism surrounding the opportunities that social media offer for humanitarian action. Drawing on the analysis of the phenomenally popular and controversial Kony 2012 campaign she observes that the architectures of social networking sites orientate action at a communitarian level which heightens their post-humanitarian style (Chouliaraki, 2012). However, an emerging new genre of reporting and commenting, which she has termed 'polymedia events' can potentially extend beyond the limitations of SNS communication by opening up the space for reflexivity and dialogical imagination.

    E16: What does Elon Musk really want with Twitter?

    E16: What does Elon Musk really want with Twitter?

    On October 27, Elon Musk took over Twitter in a 44-billion-dollar deal. The world's richest man promised to make the platform’s content moderation rules less arbitrary, more transparent, and to make the “digital town square” a haven for free speech. Since then, it’s been an eventful few weeks. Half of the company's staff was fired, impersonators took advantage of a new account policy to sow chaos and confusion, prominent accounts were banned and unbanned. And regulators – and even other Big Tech companies like Apple – are threatening to clamp down on Twitter due to concerns about hate speech. Some argue that these are just the growing pains of a platform in dire need of change and that oligarchs with a commitment to free speech like Musk are preferable to those with arbitrary and opaque moderation (or censorship) policies. Others say that Musk’s “commitment” to free speech is nothing but smoke and mirrors hiding a right-wing agenda, or that he’s just a mercurial billionaire with no grand plan at all. Still others – among them our own Yanis Varoufakis – see Musk as the latest member of a new ruling class, eager to turn us into 21st-century serfs using the power of cloud capital. What’s the truth? Varoufakis, Juliana Zita, Mehran Khalili, and the rest of our panel debate. Join us live and send us your questions and comments!

    Reflections on Life as a Learner With Guest Jaime Martinez, Jr.

    Reflections on Life as a Learner With Guest Jaime Martinez, Jr.

    In this episode we continue our conversation with Jaime Martinez, Jr., a student at Johns Hopkins University in Maryland. Martinez exemplifies, not only an engaged learner, but also an individual who wants to use his considerable talents to make a positive difference in the world. During our conversation we touch on a number of issues including lessons he learned when the COVID pandemic closed his high school shortly before his graduation and delayed his in-person arrival at Hopkins.  With sensitivity and insight, he reflects on social inequities that affect schools, changes in schooling that he would like to see, and the ways in which social media can foster or undermine democracy.

    What Will It Take to Get Republicans Out of the Red with Black Voters? ft. Ted Johnson

    What Will It Take to Get Republicans Out of the Red with Black Voters? ft. Ted Johnson

    Just one in seven Black voters cast a ballot for Republican House candidates in 2022, and while that represents a nearly 50 percent increase from 2018 (14 percent up from 9 percent), Black Republicanism remains the red, according to new analysis of Black voter behavior by Ted Johnson, a contributor to our 2022 post-election book The Red Ripple: The 2022 Midterm Elections and What They Mean for 2024.

    Black voters have largely been and remain a uniform voting bloc because the parties have organized themselves around civil rights - either taking a proactive stance or by opposing or remaining silent on civil rights issues. Johnson joins us to discuss what Black Americans want and need from both political parties and from our political system in order to realize the ideals set out in the Declaration of Independence.

    Ted Johnson is a Senior Advisor at New America leading its flagship Us@250 initiative and contributing columnist at The Washington Post.

    Governing Well Under Social Media, with Emiliano Grossman

    Governing  Well Under Social Media, with Emiliano Grossman

    Social networks pose very complex challenges to governments. Those who want to sell news have become very good at creating clickbait on negative news, knowing that we are naturally more sensitive to this kind of news. Social media discourse also contributes to exaggerating minority positions. Even scientific knowledge, which is one of the factors informing good government policy, can be challenged that way, as we have seen during the pandemic. Even more worrying, social media has a feedback effect on traditional media and mainstream politicians are tempted to join in the populist drive. What can be done to counter this trend?


    Answers by Emiliano Grossman, a researcher at Sciences Po’s Centre for European Studies and Comparative Politics. His research focuses on political  life  institutions in Europe and more specifically in France.
