Kara Swisher – Co-Founder, Recode
Kara Swisher is one of the nation’s premiere technology journalists. The former Wall St. Journal reporter is the co-founder of Recode, a tech and media news website that also produces conferences and which was purchased by Vox Media in 2015. Swisher’s skills as a pointed, no-nonsense interviewer have made her podcasts among the most entertaining in the medium. She has been on the leading edge of some of tech’s biggest stories and her reportage last year on sexual harassment in the tech industry is both courageous and ground-breaking. Swisher has said she is considering a run for mayor of San Francisco in 2023.
