Today, the Vox Media Podcast Network and Recode’s award-winning franchise, Land of the Giants, launches its new season—The Apple Revolution. Hosted by senior correspondent Peter Kafka, the season dives into how Apple went from a niche computer company with anti-establishment roots to the gold standard of product design and technology — envied and imitated by its competitors.
The six-episode series explores the transformative power of the tech industry, and how Apple became the most valuable company in the world. Peter Kafka delves deep into the company’s dominance, from the vision of co-founder Steve Jobs to the way Apple affects how we live today.
“I’m thrilled to host another season of the Land of the Giants and discuss how Apple has evolved over the years,” said Peter Kafka.
The trailer launched today. The first episode of the show will be published Wednesday, September 22 and will continue weekly every Wednesday for a total of six episodes. Listen to the trailer here and follow the show on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, or wherever you get your podcasts to get new episodes. Season four of Land of the Giants is sponsored by Webflow.
