It’s All Happening returns to the airwaves with one of the most important and culturally relevant discussions of today. Roger McNamee, Silicon Valley legend and author of the new book Zucked – Waking Up to the Facebook Catastrophe takes us through the monumental problem that social media is presenting in today’s culture. Never before has such an influential insider taken a step back to rethink the technology and become a whistle blower of the methods that these platforms inflict upon us daily. Zucked must be read and each one of us must honestly take on this problem as best we can. This is one of the most important topics ever covered on this podcast. I’m so grateful for Roger to take the time out and come to do this podcast in person, was such a joy!

Intro rant – My take on social medias journey into troubling waters.

Roger McNamee began his career in 1982 at T. Rowe Price Associates, where he managed the top performing Science & Technology Fund and co-managed the New Horizons Fund. In 1991, he launched Integral Capital Partners, the first crossover fund (combining later stage venture capital with public market investments), in partnership with Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers and Morgan Stanley & Co. In 1999, Roger co-founded Silver Lake Partners, the first private equity fund focused on technology businesses. In 2004, Roger and his partners launched Elevation Partners, an investment partnership focused on the intersection of media and technology.

Since April 2017, Roger has been engaged, along with former Google design ethicist Tristan Harris and others, in a campaign to trigger a national conversation about the dark side of social media. Roger’s book about that experience, Zucked: Waking Up to the Facebook Catastrophe, was published in February 2019.

The final IAH podcast of 2016 brings you the great Andrew Gurevich. Andrew is as good a social, cultural historian/philosopher as they come. Our talk covered the vast landscapes of rising and falling ideologies, why looking at our past is important, social media and how to be a better inhabitant and of course a recap of latter day 2016 and how we got here. I hope to do more podcasts with Andrew as he really is a model for well rounded wise and balanced thinking.
