The Podfather. No less than Steve Jobs referred to my latest guest as the pioneer of the podcast. Adam Curry hopes to be remembered for more than just what I knew him as – my favorite MTV VJ from the 1980s. And I’m sure that he will be. (And we’ll know he “made it” when there’s a plaque of him displayed somewhere in a public place.) We cover his conversation with Prince, his theories on the world and politics, the pharmaceutical industry (“Is your kid acting too kid-like?”), why online advertising will never pay out (ever-expanding supply), why he lives in Austin (one corporate word: sustainability), what he’s really good at (sifting thru large amounts of data and uncovering discrepancies), what it’s like to have a ton of money and then not, whether humans simply consume more than we produce, and his purchase of MTV.com and Curry.com. The host of the No Agenda podcast might’ve made more Indians jealous with the ownership of Curry.com than me with FunnyIndian.com. It’s a marathon convo – and it’s absolutely worth it. And now you know him from Adam. Enjoy.
