Book Discussion - The Four

Near the end of 2017 my friend Kevin suggested we both read a book and discuss it when he was in town for the holidays. I recorded the conversation, so six months later - here it is.

It's a free flowing conversation spanning almost 90 minutes that discusses the book The Four by Scott Galloway. The book is about the market dominance of Amazon, Apple, Facebook, and Google.


I'm a terrible multitasker. Granted, research shows that almost no one is. None the less, my job entails some brute force drafting tasks that allow me to zone out, so I've been consuming a wide variety of podcasts. These are my favorites:

99% Invisible - stories about architecture and design.

You Are Not So Smart - a discussion of cognitive biases and heuristics.

Planet Money - economic reporting and storytelling.

Freakonomics - storytelling about counterintuitive research.

Dan Carlin's Hardcore History (Common Sense by him is pretty good too) - long, well researched historical content that focuses on wars.

The Truth - short fictional stories.

This American Life - investigative storytelling?
