On the June 30th edition of Your Call, we’ll have a conversation about the explosion of the tech industry. Billion dollar companies were once rare.  Today, there are more than 50 billion dollar companies in Silicon Valley, with more added every other week.

The tech explosion is gentrifying cities, raising property values and changing urban landscapes.  Will this latest tech boom lead to another bust? It’s Your Call, with Rose Aguilar and you.

Guests:

David Talbot, journalist, and the author of Season of the Witch: Enchantment, Terror, and Deliverance in the City of Love

Jason Benlevi, long time technology marketing communications professional in Silicon Valley and the author of TOO MUCH MAGIC: Pulling the Plug on the Cult of Tech
