Exponent

Exponent is a brainchild of Ben Thompson.

In the show, Ben and his co-host, James Allworth explore modern technology’s impact on businesses and society.

The tone of the podcast is a bit on the serious side, but it’s easy to absorb.

It’s a must-listen for anyone employed in a tech company, especially for people interested in management and entrepreneurship.

Right now, the duo is taking a post-season break, and new episodes are scheduled to air in the fall.
