“Beyond the Page” Podcast Episode 17 with Roger McNamee LIVE


In Episode 17, SCOTT MOYERS, the publisher of Penguin Press, sits down with ROGER MCNAMEE, the noted tech venture capitalist, early mentor to Mark Zuckerberg, and Facebook investor, who went from being a founding supporter of the world’s biggest and most profitable social media company to becoming one of its most influential critics. Facebook’s business model, its vision of itself as a news and information platform devoid of social responsibility, its use of data-mining and AI, its pervasive influence on our culture and politics. As you’ll see, there’s nothing McNamee isn’t willing to discuss, including his own adventures at the birth of big tech. McNamee’s new book, Zuckedis available now.
