Kara Swisher is perhaps the most feared—and effective—journalist in tech. She first made a splash covering AOL in the 1990s and she’s continued to scoop Silicon Valley players ever since. In this crossover episode with Kara’s podcast, we discuss the competition between Instagram and Snapchat, and why Facebook executives have been slow to acknowledge the site’s role in the 2016 election. “They don’t want to take responsibility for the fact that their platform was used by a malevolent power to create discord in our country,” Kara says. We also delve into tech addiction in kids, the effect of automation on jobs, and our careers in journalism.
For the final installment in the Wonder Women series, Diane von Fürstenberg—the woman behind the iconic fashion line—welcomes us to her company’s Manhattan headquarters for a conversation about her full and colorful life. We discuss her wide-ranging philanthropy, her famous husbands, and how her brand has evolved since she appeared on the cover of Newsweek at age 29. She also tells the story of her mother, a Holocaust survivor, and how she inspired Diane’s determination to be independent. Plus, DVF explains why she believes the most important relationship in life is the one you have with yourself: “If you have that, any other relationship is a plus and not a must.”
Laverne Cox is no overnight success. By the time she stepped onto the national stage (and the cover of TIME magazine) in 2014, she’d been dedicating her life to acting for well over a decade. “Being an artist is what informs everything that I do,” she says. Laverne joins us to discuss everything from acting opportunities for trans women, her breakthrough role as Sophia on Netflix’s Orange is the New Black, and her childhood in Mobile, Alabama.

Amy Schumer made a name— and a career— for herself with her unapologetically raunchy brand of stand-up comedy. But being known as “the sex comic” never phased Amy. “That just seemed like a stepping stone,” she says. I stopped by Amy’s apartment to discuss everything that came out of her success in stand-up comedy, including starring roles in movies and on Broadway, her Comedy Central sketch series, and her best-selling memoir. We also discuss the #MeToo movement, body image issues in Hollywood, and the tragedy that sparked Amy’s involvement in gun safety activism.
As the longest-serving black woman in the House of Representatives, Congresswoman Maxine Waters has been a fixture of California’s political scene since the 1970s. In 2017, she unexpectedly became a viral sensation, too. We meet up with Rep. Waters in Los Angeles to talk about “reclaiming her time,” growing up as one of 13 children, and why she doesn’t hesitate to call President Trump racist. Plus, the Congresswoman offers a poetry reading.
“ It seems that every day, there’s a new story and a new vocabulary around gender that’s challenging our long-held attitudes and preconceptions about what makes us who we are. ‘Gender Revolution’ will go beyond the headlines to examine the why, the how and what it all means, with intimate stories of the people who are at the forefront of this new frontier. ”

DJ Khaled — hip-hop producer, Snapchat guru, author, record label executive and music mogul — is ready for “another one.” With his 10th album, huge summer hits and a new son, Khaled has a lot to be grateful for. I sat down with Khaled to talk about his latest album, Grateful, which comes out on June 23; his collaborations with the likes of Beyoncé, Rihanna and Justin Bieber, as well as his son, Asahd — who is an executive producer on the album, by the way — and how fatherhood changed his life.
