North Star Podcast

Jan 17, 2020

My guest today is Robert Cottrell, the founder of The Browser, which has become my go-to source for articles. Here’s how it works. Every day, he recommends five articles and includes a short summary for each one. They’re wild and random — but that’s what makes his work so exciting. For example, today’s issue has an articles about how bees argue, the battle of ideas in China, how Americans should think about nuclear weapons, the circus arts, and the future of machine-created art. In this episode, we talk about why journalism is one of the most under-valued crafts in the world, what we should know about Latvia, and the cutting edge of language translation software. Please enjoy my conversation with Robert Cottrell.
