The Joe Rogan Experience – Episode 1975
Antonio Garcia Martinez is a tech entrepreneur, writer, former Facebook product manager, and author of “Chaos Monkeys: Obscene Fortune and Random Failure in Silicon Valley.”
Antonio Garcia Martinez is a child of Big Tech. He has worked for many companies, most notably Facebook. There, he led the charge in targeted marketing. (So we have him to thank for all those lovely, spot-on ads!)
The first half of the interview is actually about Ukraine! Antonio just up and decided to travel there and see things for himself.
All the cool tech stuff is in the second half of the interview, and as always we got you with the timestamps!
Sprinkled throughout the episode are conversations about social tensions arising from ideological adherence. You know, just the things that have been very common in JRE for a while now.
