  1. CodeNewbie Ep. 82 What Is Code?

    Paul Ford didn’t expect his article on coding to go big. But almost a year later, the Bloomberg issue dedicated to “What is code?” is still completely sold out. We dig into the major topics covered in that long and highly entertaining piece, like conferences, open source, and languages, and how Paul and the editors created a technical article that still managed to be accessible to coder and non-coders alike.

  2. Episode 10: Paul Ford and Josh Whip the Dip by Tomorrow

    The enigmatic and hilarious Paul Ford returns to Tomorrow to discuss his recent, critically acclaimed Businessweek story "What Is Code?" The two men actually manage to stay on topic for a little while, but the conversation soon devolves (evolves?) into a whirlwind discussion about commenters, Batman, and Nokia. In addition, listeners will have a front row seat to the birth of a unique, high-concept restaurant.

  3. Behind The Code Curtain

    The products made by Apple, Google, and Facebook in large part mediate our experience of the world, and yet most of us haven’t a clue about how they actually work. Brooke speaks with Paul Ford, the writer and programmer behind this week’s 72-page issue of Bloomberg Businessweek, "What is Code?," about the integral role code plays in our lives.

  4. Longform Podcast Episode 5: Paul Ford

    Aaron Lammer talks with writer and programmer Paul Ford.

    “You don’t really read a newspaper to preserve journalism, or save great journalism, or to keep the newspaper going. You read it because it gives you a sense of power or control over the environment that you’re in, and actually sort of helps you define what your personal territory is, and what the things are that matter for you. As long as products serve that need—as long as books allow you to explore spaces that it’s otherwise really hard for you to explore and so on—I think people will continue to read them.”
