MegaMaker - Wealth, twitter fights, and gen-z

Howdy!

Here's a few things I found lately that I think you'll enjoy:

💰 Thoughts on wealth, from Logic:

Jordan Harbinger interviewed Logic (the rapper) on his podcast. Logic grew up poor, and had some thoughts on money, now that he's rich:

"People with money tend to be happier. The money gives them comfort; and when you're comfortable, you can focus on other shit. You're not stressed out all the time, you know what I mean?"

This lines up with my own experience. I wrote about it here.

🗯️ A disagreement with Jonathan Stark

I recently tweeted this:

Jonathan Stark replied: "I strongly disagree but I recognize that there is a lot of nuance to it. 🙂 Wanna do a podcast episode about it?"

We recorded this episode, and I think it's one of my favorites:

Jonathan pushes back on a lot of my core ideas; and I think we both were "sharpened" as a result of the conversation. If you listen, let us know!

🙋‍♀️ My 18-year-old daughter wrote an article for the Transistor blog

My daughter researched and wrote this article on how Gen Z listens to podcasts. It's good!

📊 Gen-z podcast stats

I've always wondered how I can involve my kids in my work; this ended up being a great way to do it. Plus, it was exciting to see her learning more about podcasting, the industry, the tech ecosystem, etc..

Hope you're doing well!

Cheers,
