What Biden means for tech
Play • 34 min

As Joe Biden settles into the Oval Office, tech companies in the Seattle region and elsewhere are watching with a sense of optimism to see what the new administration will mean for them and the industry. From the pandemic response to jobs to the climate, there's no shortage of critical issues for the new administration to address. And that has some experts believing that antitrust, content moderation and other regulatory crackdowns pursued by the prior administration might not be a priority in the initial phase of the new one. GeekWire contributing editor Monica Nickelsburg joins co-founders John Cook and Todd Bishop to assess the issues ahead.

Gadget Lab: How to Get a PlayStation 5
For the next few weeks, Get WIRED is bringing you episodes from Gadget Lab, WIRED's weekly tech news podcast! Be sure to subscribe here or wherever you get your podcasts. Do you have a PlayStation 5? If so, good for you. If not, well, join the club. Sony’s newest game console has been very difficult to purchase since it was released in November—so much so that folks have resorted to using sniper bots, inside sources, and other shady practices to sidestep the scrum and snag that PS5. This week, we’re joined by Alan Henry and Saira Mueller from the WIRED video games team, and Jeffrey Van Camp from WIRED’s reviews team to talk about the issues keeping PS5 supplies low. They’ll also tell us about their own experiences trying to buy a console. At the end of the show, we share some shopping tips you can use on your own quest to get this year’s most scarce gadget. Show Notes:  Read some advice about how to (maybe) buy a PS5 here. Read more about the scalper bots buying up all the PS5s here.  Recommendations:  Saira’s recommendation is to try cryotherapy. Brrr! Alan recommends Discord, which is great for gaming parties. Jeff recommends that you get a snow shovel, because you never know when you might need it. Lauren recommends this CBS guide to how you can help people in Texas during this deadly cold weather. Mike recommends the Vice show Hamilton’s Pharmacopeia, now in its third season. Saira Mueller can be found on Twitter @SairaMueller. Alan Henry is @halophoenix. Jeff Van Camp is @JeffreyVC. Lauren Goode is @LaurenGoode. Michael Calore is @snackfight.

This week on Gadget Lab, WIRED senior correspondent Adam Rogers joins us to talk about all the wild tech built into Perseverance and what the big deal about Mars is anyway. Then a very special guest crashes the show to talk about cheese. Show Notes:  Read Adam’s story about the cameras on the Perseverance rover. Watch the video of the landing and read about it here. Read more about the LA musician who helped design the microphones on the rover here. Read Gilad Edelman on the health benefits of cheese.

The Power of Audio with Audioburst founder and CEO Amir Hirsh
On this 248th episode of "Marketing Today," host Alan Hart speaks with Amir Hirsh, the chief executive officer and founder at Audioburst. This AI-powered audio discovery platform helps connect content consumers with relevant audio clips. Our conversation starts with how people have a tendency to call Hirsh crazy due to his innovative and forward-thinking. Hirsh discusses how 2020 acted as gasoline on the audio fire and how "audio connects people much stronger and creates brand affinity." In the last year alone, the podcast industry more than doubled in size as more and more people crave content that doesn't hurl visuals at their eyeballs. We then dive into Hirsh's company Audioburst and how it has "built an AI engine that listens to that vast amount of content," analyzes, and cuts it into short clips to make it more discoverable on the internet. Hirsh explains the massive opportunities that await marketers who can create or participate in their own audio content, as well as sponsor and attach their name to the audio content of others. The power of audio lies in the fact that "it can pretty much follow you throughout your day without interrupting whatever it is that you're doing at that moment in time." No matter how many people call him crazy, Hirsh sticks to the guiding principle that has gotten him here. "As long as you are true to yourself, you'll be a happier and more contributing person in life." Highlights from this week's "Marketing Today": As an entrepreneur that has spent his life in innovation and forward-thinking, Amir has been called crazy plenty of times. 1:13 2020 saw the audio industry explode with more people connecting via audio and technology than ever. 2:20 Podcasting doubled to 5.5 million podcasts in 2020 alone as more and more time has been spent at home. 2:54 Consuming content through the ears rather than the eyes frees up the consumer to do so much more. 3:40 Though Amazon was a little bit late to the audio game, it has positioned itself to be the 800lb gorilla in the room. 4:27 Voice penetration through Alexa will allow Amazon to push audio content at an entirely new level. 5:36 It's vital for marketers to think about audio as it becomes more available in all industries. 6:40 People can connect with brands at a much higher rate through audio than just being bombarded with visuals. 7:10 If you are not moving your ads into the audio dimension, you miss out on half of the consumers' attention span. 8:00 Amir started Audioburst to help podcasts and other audio connect with internet searchers. 9:27 By adding as much metadata as possible to the audio clips, Audioburst makes audio much more discoverable. 11:00 Other than making it accessible, Audioburst aims to make audio easy to use on many different platforms. 11:42 Currently, Audioburst partners with the likes of Samsung and Hyundai to integrate into multiple industries. 13:31 Rather than answering questions with an automated voice, Audioburst provides an audio clip from an expert in that field. 15:15 Audio finds its power in its ability to follow you around throughout the day without interrupting your activities. 16:44 Brands and marketers should be open to opportunities both in audio and on audio. 17:56 Opportunities in audio involve brands and marketers creating their own audio content, whether producing or being interviewed. 18:24 Placing a brand around a playlist, podcast, or audio event is how brands can participate in audio. 19:28 Amir attributes all the ups and downs that created his personality as someone that remains true to himself. 22:00 Looking back, Amir thinks it's important never to lose your inner child as you go through the ride of life. 24:26 It's important to actively care about the world you live in and the people around you. 27:30 There's still time for brands and marketers to get in on the audio pie, but the longer they wait, the more they risk missing out. 29:00   Resources Mentioned: Audioburst Amir Hirsh $1B M&A Audio Market Amazon Music, Audible, Alexa Spotify launches audiobooks   Subscribe to the podcast: Listen in iTunes (link: Listen in Google Podcasts (link: Listen in Spotify (Link: ) Connect with the Guest: Connect with Marketing Today and Alan Hart:   Support the show: See for privacy information.
