This week, I talked to my friend and colleague Lauren Goode, who you can also hear on the Re/code podcast Too Embarrassed to Ask (OK, obligatory plug over). Lauren and I talked about “House of Cards”-induced paranoia, how to get into journalism and the power of a CD-burning computer in the age of Napster.

This episode was recorded on March 16, 2016.

You can find more info about how the show works here, but TL;DR: Neither Lauren nor I knew we were going to talk about any of that. I drew all the questions randomly from an online database, and you can contribute to that database, right here. Seriously, do it. It’s fun.
