Andy calls up Kara Swisher, whom Newsweek once called Silicon Valley’s “most powerful tech journalist,” to discuss the myriad issues surrounding companies like Facebook, Twitter, and even Donald Trump’s new social media platform Truth Social. They get into the Facebook Papers, if government regulation is coming, and where she sees Big Tech heading in the near future. Plus, Andy tells a story he’s never told before about interactions with Facebook while he was in the White House.
