We talk about content. How it's made. Why it's good. Why it's very bad. Sorry in advance for the British bits.

Soooo this week’s big topic was about the currently-unraveling political situation in the UK. And while we were editing the episode British Prime Minister Liz Truss resigned. But other than that, thanks to how weirdly slow-fast British politics moves, not much else we talked about this week has changed, so this should all still be pretty relevant! We also talked about the current trend of weird rich guys buying social networks and Ryan shares a theory he has about Netflix.


Also, come to our live show in London next month! The amazing lineup includes:

  • Chris Stokel-Walker, tech journalist

  • Saima Ferdows, comedian and producer

  • Hanna Ines Flint, author of Strong Female Character

  • Charlotte Colombo, freelance writer and editor at The Daily Dot

  • Sophia Smith Galer, journalist, content creator, and author of Losing It
