Description

In this best-of episode originally published in January 2018, writer and comedian Sarah Cooper talks with Kara Swisher and Dick Costolo about why she left a career in the tech industry to become a stand-up comic. Cooper has made tech a central part of her comedy and has written a book based in part on her time at Yahoo and Google called 100 Tricks To Appear Smart in Meetings. The group debates whether people who work in tech are funny (on purpose) and whether depictions of them in popular culture, on shows like HBO’s Silicon Valley or CBS’ The Big Bang Theory, hit their mark.
