Great guests but too many interruptions making it annoying!
I still listen to the show, five stars for great guests in tech but negative points for Kara’s interview style (I think some entry level journalist can possibly do better with respect and listening skills). Yes she is known for challenging guests but there is a difference between no BS and not respecting guests!1. Too many interruptions now makes me feel embarrassed for the guests. For example, in the Dara K interview in the recent Code Conference, Kara at least interrupted Dara 5 times before he finished the full sentence. Dara was talking about Uber’s direction and strategy, and all of a sudden Kara asked “Do you still consult him (Travis)”, then the whole flow changed. What’s the point of that question? Why not letting the guest finish and asking good following up questions on Uber strategy? Don’t ask the question for the sake of your own curiosity. 2. Because the show doesn’t focus on follow up questions, it stays on the suffice of the topics. For example, diversity / inclusion is a big topic, but there hasn’t been a deep dived discussion around it. The interview strategy has always been (1) interviewer background (2) company strategy (3) tech issues / white men culture (4) privacy issues (5) trump. Over and over again.
