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):

“Can Meta make WhatsApp the Super App of India? Netflix builds out its gaming infrastructure with the addition of gamer handles. And we share the latest info on Apple’s mixed-reality headset.”

Rick Howard looks at risk probabilities. Dinah Davis from Arctic Wolf looks at ransomware payment myths. And an Iranian threat actor exploits Log4j vulnerabilities against Israeli targets.”

“After much fanfare, including a crop of celebrity appearances and the arrival of Vice President Kamala Harris, NASA said it was scrubbing today’s first-ever launch attempt of the mega moon rocket due to technical issues.”

“Really, Apple? THAT is what you’re going to call your AR/VR glasses? I tell you what “that” is. A look at the passkeys Apple is bringing us soon. More deets on the Netflix ad-supported tier. WhatsApp’s super-app ambitions seem to be bearing fruit in India. And is it too late for Eminem and Snoop Dogg to save the NFT market?”

“Our anchors begin today’s show with CNBC’s Dom Chu breaking down tech stocks moving lower following hawkish comments from the Fed on Friday, and New Street Advisors Group Founder and CEO Delano Saporu shares his outlook for mega-caps in the sector.

Later, fuel cell company Plug Power CEO Andrew Marsh joins for a closer look at the fuel cell company’s green hydrogen deal with Amazon.”

“Analyst Benjamin Cowen is detailing a potential worst case scenario for Bitcoin and the crypto markets at large.

“When was the last time you applied for a loan or some form of credit? Was it a magical experience? Did it take just a few minutes from application to funding? What if robotic process automation could mimic the human element for the more common requirements for lending and what if the majority of these, often tedious, parts of the loan application process could be done simply through a mobile phone? There are many efficiencies still to discover in financial services, and automating more and more of the customer experience can make perfect sense while it frees up real well-trained humans to talk to customers when they need you most. In this episode of One Vision, Bradley chats with Joseariel Gomez Ortigoza, founder of Shastic, a companion application that helps make any process at your financial institution or fintech that much more efficient and customer-centric. Join us to hear why this matters, and how more processes can go Beyond Good when it comes to customer experience.”

“Online shopping can be full of pop-ups and distractions, as well as some traps and misdirection. If you can find the Unsubscribe or Cancel button, even that tool might not release you completely. And that’s intentional. “Marketplace’s” Kimberly Adams speaks with Harry Brignull, a user-experience specialist based in the United Kingdom. He calls these design strategies “dark patterns,” and he’s been documenting them for over a decade.”
