      When you work on your computer, there are so many things you take for granted: operating systems, programming languages, they all have to come from somewhere.

      In the late 1960s and 1970s, that somewhere was Bell Labs, and the operating system they were building was UNIX.

      They were building more than just an operating system... more..

    The consistently best podcast I listen to is CoRecursive Podcast with Adam Gordon Bell. So far, every single episode I've heard has been excellent: engaging, informative, sometimes provocative, always well-produced. He chooses good guests and draws the best out of them!

And when an episode is not on technical details, it's on ideas and themes that are mind-blowing and unseen anywhere else.
