Best Tech Podcasts This Week – 09/20/22

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 a small entrepreneur make an impact within a massive, complex system, like healthcare or education? What’s the best framework to amplify the positive side of having co-founders and avoid the negatives? Reid Hoffman and Bob Safian answer these and more questions from small business owners in the Masters of Scale community. Plus: in our Need to Know segment, Reid & Bob take on a burning question: How can Black founders beat the odds and find funding?”

“Earn gift cards by searching the web, human trafficking scams and the funniest names people came up with for the new Uranus probe. Also, a quick fix for slow Wi-Fi, 3 ways to make sure Facebook isn’t listening, 6 million people tracked this coffin and new iPhone and Android security features to turn on.”

“Ryan Petersen, is the CEO of Flexport, ac ompany that builds software that integrates all the different shipping vendor systems you might run into as you try to get a product from a factory in China to a consumer in Idaho: rail, sea, truck. We’ve talked about the supply chain and inventory management on Decoder with a lot of our guests — the chip shortage seems to affect every company, and sorting out how to get products made and delivered on time is a pretty universal problem. But we haven’t really talked about how products get from one place to another around the world.

So I wanted to talk to Ryan, figure out what Flexport’s role in all this is, what his bigger supply chain solutions would be, and why he’s leaving his job as CEO to be executive chairman and handing the reins to Dave Clark, who used to work at Amazon.”

“In a heated debate, Eric Wall, crypto blogger and investor, and Justin Bons, founder and chief investment officer of Cyber Capital, discuss Bitcoin’s security model, whether there are fundamental flaws in its design, and which is the best consensus mechanism.”

“Tensions are rising between Washington and Beijing, but Chinese investment into Silicon Valley venture-capital funds is still flowing. Some U.S. officials are worried that Chinese investors could pass information back to their government. WSJ reporter Heather Somerville joins host Zoe Thomas to discuss a new report shedding light on the scope of the investments.”

“Today’s guest is Mazin Gilbert, Director of Engineering, Telecommunications Orchestration, Analytics, and Automation at Google. Some five or six years ago, Mazin joined us to discuss artificial intelligence in telecommunications when he was with AT&T. Since this last episode, AI has become inevitable in the telco space with substantial AI deployments across the industry. In this episode, Mazin first speaks about what he’s observed in the telecommunications world that he considers some of the early signs of change in data infrastructure and the fruitful use of AI. He then dives into where artificial intelligence is currently adding value to the telco industry.

“Developing a product with a 24-hour dev cycle across 15 countries and three companies sounds next to impossible. This week, Nathan Henry, Postlight’s Head of Product Management, and Brian Huss, FanDuel’s Vice President of Product, chat about how it’s not only possible but that a project of this scale can actually be pretty seamless. They break down how they approached developing one of FanDuel’s new games, Faceoff, and how honesty and clarity can help build a frictionless app.”

“An update on the Uber breach. Emotet and other malware delivery systems. Belarusian Cyber Partisans work against the regime in Minsk. Grayson Milbourne of Webroot on the arms race for vulnerabilities. Rick Howard continues his exploration of cyber risk. And risky piracy sites–that’s on the Internet, kids, not the high seas.”

“Our anchors begin today’s show with CNBC’s Jim Cramer sharing his outlook for Meta, Netflix and investor concerns as the Street braces for another rate hike from the Fed. Then, Bain & Company Partner Anne Hoecker offers her take on consolidation in tech, and Oppenheimer Managing Director Jason Helfstein joins after upgrading Netflix to outperform. Later, CNBC’s Frank Holland tracks the movement of several cloud stocks, and Appian Founder and CEO Matt Calkins discusses his plans to use the current downturn as an opportunity to grow the enterprise software firm’s business.”

“Accerta is a Canadian healthcare benefits provider with a noble cause that leverages a hybrid workforce, human and digital workers, to handle their explosive business expansion. On this podcast, Brad Hairston speaks with Peter Owsiany, President and CEO of Accerta, who explains how his company is using intelligent automation as a scalable platform for growth.”
