In true George, Dan and Carly fashion, things get started with the smell of Scholastic book fairs and taxi cabs (aka Carly’s new favorite adjective: redolent), before diving in to data. The three get into how the new Apple updates will impact data collection, privacy, and the customization of different tools, and what this means for both companies and consumers. Data leads to NFTs, the Most Passionate Percentile, and marketing theatre. Dan makes a sandwich.

- Quoting: Oscar Wilde, “A work of art is the unique result of a unique temperament. Its beauty comes from the fact that the author is what he is. It has nothing to to do with the fact that other people want what they want. Indeed, the moment that an artist takes notice of what other people want, and tries to supply the demand, he ceases to be an artist, and becomes a dull or an amusing craftsman, an honest or a dishonest tradesman”
