UPDATE: A kind listener has cleaned up the audio file to remove some background noises. Thank you Luca.
In this special episode we have a reading of the recent New Yorker article by Ian Parker. The article is about Apple with the focus on Apple’s Sir Jonathan Ive.
The idea was given to me by Mike Hurley of Relay.fm fame. So if people find the 17,000 word article too long to read, now you can listen with a variable speed with whatever your podcast app of choice may be.
11:45 - Chapter 2 - The Studio
34:02 - Chapter 3 - Managing Newness
1:05:00- Chapter 4 - A Tap On the Wrist
(Note, if you can hear a slight background whine, then I do apologise, the neighbours are weird, thankfully it ends around 40 minutes into the reading).

This week Adam and myself discuss the CGP video 'Humans Need Not Apply'. We start with a breakdown of the video and then go on to discuss some of the solutions to the issues raised by having huge levels of automation in the work force, estimates reckon it could be as high as 45% so what are the societal implications of this. Along the way we reference pop culture.
It sounds like a serious discussion, but this won't be, Adam makes sure of that.
