      How These Netflix And NPR Vets Plan To Reinvent Podcasts

      One of the reasons Steve Henn moved to Silicon Valley six years ago was to preempt his own irrelevance. As a longtime public radio reporter, he knew the move promised access to the technology industry he covered for shows like Marketplace and Planet Money.

      Crowdsourcing The Beatles: How Ron Howard's New Documentary Unearthed Rare New Footage

      Listening to Ron Howard talk about his latest film, you get the sense he’s been wanting to make it since 1964, when he was 10 years old. He had watched The Beatles perform on The Ed Sullivan Show just weeks before his tenth birthday, when he opened a box containing the only gift he truly wanted: a Beatles wig. As Beatlemania proceeded to sweep America—and then the world—Howard reacted the same way millions of kids did—fanatically.

      It might be difficult to imagine, nearly 50 years after the Beatles broke up, that there would be anything new to say about one of the most celebrated and documented bands of all time. But Ron Howard insists that there is.

      How Women Are Swiping The Weirdness Out Of Online Dating

      At first glance, Nathan seemed damn near perfect. At least, as far as one can tell from Tinder: He was a coffee-loving "urban adventurer" from the Midwest and an entrepreneur who walked dogs on the side. Oh, and get this: a self-described feminist. Finally, a guy that gets it. So when Nathan (not his real name) matched with Alexandra Tweten, a 28-year-old woman living in Los Angeles, she was eager to start chatting.

      Pandora made $1.16 billion from its 10-year-old personalized Internet radio platform, the company reported Thursday as part of its fourth-quarter earnings release.
