Overheard Tapes Kara Swisher 04/09

Please join Overheard with Evan Smith for an interview with Tech Journalist Kara Swisher on Tuesday, April 9th at 3:15pm in Studio A at Austin PBS’s new facility, the Austin Media Center (map).


For nearly thirty years, journalist Kara Swisher has had a front row seat to the tech revolution. She shares what she’s seen and what it all means in Burn Book: A Tech Love Story—part memoir, part history and, most of all, a necessary recounting of tech’s most powerful players. This is the inside story we’ve all been waiting for about modern Silicon Valley.

Swisher calls herself “tech’s cranky Cassandra” but also sees its enormous potential. A leading technology journalist, her endless curiosity and background (female, lesbian, parent, Boomer, Georgetown Foreign Service School graduate) has made her “a force in the industry” (Meredith Kopit Levien, CEO of The New York Times Company). In other words, she’s the perfect person to chronicle the biggest boom in wealth creation in the history of the world.

Tuesday, April 9th, 2024 at 3:15pm.
Doors for Austin PBS members at 2:30 pm.
Doors for general admission at 2:45 pm
