My thoughts on Lex Fridman's Podcast with Saager Enjeti

I’m going to be doing a new post category each week based on podcasts I’m listening to. This past weekend, I listed to the Lex Fridman Podcast with Saager Enjeti. Lex Fridman is an MIT researcher/scientist that I originally discovered on Joe Rogan’s podcast. He releases a few new episodes per week and cover a wide range of topics including artificial intelligence, machine learning, tech, finance, and much more.

Saager Enjeti, co-host of the The Hill’s Rising news show, was a guest this past weekend and it was one of the more interesting podcasts I’ve listened to in a long time. Saager is a DC-based, conservative-leaning, political correspondent, which may differ from my personal opinions, but his honest, objective takes on the current political landscape (check out The Hill on Youtube, literally my main news source right now), power players in government, and general cultural commentary is a breath of fresh air in the time of polarizing, political opinion designed to sensationalize the news stories of the day in order to get clicks instead of finding actual truth.

Saager goes in depth on the balance of power in government, the current divide between Left and Right, the drive of the human spirt (his book recommendations include “Endurance: Shackleton’s Incredible Voyage” which sounds badass), the difference between influencers and content creators, political predictions for 2024, and much much more.

Overall, really interesting guy that is an up and coming figure in news media that I listen to pretty much every day but didn’t know much about personally. Now I’m an even bigger fan.

Check out the entire interview below and hopefully you get as much out if it as I did:
