  1. The Culture of Tech | Episode 1: Steve Wozniak and Television

    Steve Wozniak is known for many things, but did you know that in addition to co-founding Apple, he also invented the universal remote control?* In this podcast interview, I dig into that story and more as we talk about Woz’s personal history with Television.

    Hi everybody — Benj here. I’m still trying to work out the kinks of launching a new podcast and a website at the same time, so I hope you can bear with me as I sort things out. The design of the site will likely improve drastically over time.

    Our first show is here.

    The guest is Steve Wozniak talking about Television.

    I thought it would be fun to pick a unifying topic and discuss it throughout his career.

    In this case, Woz’s love and knowledge of television both allowed him to design Apple’s first two signature products (the Apple I and Apple II), but also to later create a company called CL9 that pioneered universal remote controls with the CORE remote.

    Special thanks to Steve for doing this.

    I’ve also prepared original music for the show, as I intend it to be a venue for some of my musical adventures as well (There’s an original Steve Wozniak song near the end of this show, for example).

    Please let me know what you think. Hope you enjoy the show.

    *Engineers at GE also invented a universal remote control around the same time, and Woz’s product, which was much more powerful, hit the market two years later. Play in new window | DownloadSubscribe: Apple Podcasts | Android | RSS

    It seems that nowadays, aside from religion and politics, one of the most hotly debated topics is that of nutrition.

    Should we eat high carb diets? Low carb? High fat? High protein? What about wheat or gluten? Should we eat meat or adopt a vegan diet?

    There are as many opinions as there are people — and books, magazines and websites are overflowing with information showing you the “right” way to eat and exercise to lose weight.

    But if “eating less and moving more” is all it takes to lose weight and enjoy a healthy lifestyle, why are so many of us fat and getting fatter?

    In today’s episode, I chat with Gary Taubes, bestselling author of three books, The Case Against Sugar (2016), Why We Get Fat and What to Do About It (2011) and Good Calories, Bad Calories (2007).

    We talk about the sharp rise of obesity and diabetes in America, the structural hurdles to effective nutrition research, and explore the common myth that a calorie is just a calorie.

    Here are a few other things you’ll learn in this interview:

    How diets shifted in the last century, and what impact it’s having on our bodies today.

    Why a carb isn’t just a carb — and why you should know the difference

    Is the sugar industry the new Big Tobacco?

    What role genetics play in our health, and how much is under our control

    Why humans are so attracted to sugar and how to break the habit

    Gary’s suggestions to improve your health, drop body fat and feel terrific

    The benefits of fasting and how you can try it out yourself

    And a bunch more.
