Best Tech Podcasts This Week – 01/02/23

The Tech Tribune staff has compiled a list of the best new tech podcasts released in the last week (as of the time of writing):

“Our anchors begin today’s show with CNBC’s Phil LeBeau and New Street Research analyst Pierre Ferragu discussing Tesla missing estimates for year-end deliveries. Then, we dive into what to expect from tech stocks in 2023 with CNBC’s Mike Santoli and BMO Wealth Management Chief Investment Strategist Yung-Yu Ma, and our Julia Boorstin reports on potential social media regulations in the year ahead. Next, Morgan Stanley analyst Keith Weiss joins with his outlook for software, and CNBC’s Pippa Stevens breaks down surging prices in Lithium used for the production of electric vehicles. Later, CNBC’s Kate Rooney shares the latest in the trial of FTX Founder Sam Bankman-Fried, and CNBC’s Seema Mody covers manufacturer John Deere’s investments in robotics, drones and artificial intelligence.”

“How do you get your first customers? YC Group Partner & former Head of Growth at Airbnb, Gustaf Alströmer, gives tactical advice to answer this question for all kinds of companies — whether you’re B2B or B2C — and discusses why it’s important for founders to do sales early on.”

“As applications grow in size and complexity, and as they increasingly move to microservice architectures, it becomes harder for individual developers to perform end-to-end tests of an entire application stack. Connecting development services to production services is off limits. Test environments are limited to automated tests.

Staging environments are woefully inadequate with the amount of data available for their use. Testing large and complex applications is becoming harder and harder. Speedscale provides developers a solution to this problem. Speedscale assists in developing and testing applications by recreating real world traffic loads in test and development environments, essentially bringing the data quality of production into the exploratory world of development. Matthew LeRay is the CTO and co-founder of Speedscale, and he’s our guest today.”

“Today’s guest is Emily Bremner, Product Advisor at Signal AI, a software company specializing in external intelligence with over $100 million in funding. Emily was the SVP of Product at Signal AI at the time of this episode’s recording. In conversation with Emerj’s Head of Research, Daniel Faggella, Emily talks about how AI can not only help companies manage their internal data but also process data from outside the organization to find insights into external risk. Later, she dives into use cases for strategic reputation management, citing how interactions between larger institutions and the media can impact investment risk to tax and regulatory compliance. If you’ve enjoyed or benefited from some of the insights of this episode, consider leaving us a five-star review on Apple Podcasts, and let us know what you learned, found helpful, or liked most about this show!”

“The first open-source equivalent of OpenAI’s ChatGPT has arrived, but good luck running it on your laptop — or at all.”

“Trucking can be dangerous job – long, often tedious hours behind the wheel, the unpredictability of the weather and of course, other drivers. And yet, trucking is an essential part of supply chain. 72% of the nation’s freight gets from point A to point B in a truck, according to the American Trucking Associations. Most of those holiday gifts you might be enjoying right now got to you on a truck. So truck drivers are an essential part of our economy. The companies that hire and manage those drivers have started bringing a lot more technology into big rigs, including artificial intelligence and sometimes automation. Marketplace’s Kimberly Adams spoke with Karen Levy, author of “Data Driven: Truckers, Technology, and the New Workplace Surveillance” about how these tools are being used in the industry.”

“Plus, how to boost cell coverage, the best way to trade or sell old phones, airline passenger airdrops nudes, home remodel tips and my smart advice for callers like you.”

“Take the time to clean up and customize your Dock to improve your productivity. These 10 tips are quick and easy to do.”
