Kara Swisher is the host of “Sway,” the new twice-weekly interview podcast about power by New York Times Opinion. She has been a contributing Opinion writer since 2018.

Considered the top reporter in the tech game, Swisher has been reporting on the industry since the early 1990s.

Once called Silicon Valley's most feared but revered journalist by New York magazine, Swisher has established herself as the oracle of the tech world with unrivaled access to the industry's most significant leaders.
