Shane Smith is a smart guy. He’s the CEO of Vice. He grew it from a dicky alternative magazine to a 1.4 billion dollar media monster. He’s also not scared to put himself on the line, having been to North Korea multiple times, Syria, Russia and numerous other insane countries who’s names seem to change on a daily basis.
It’s no secret that I love Vice News, it’s one of my primary source of information and fascinating content which traditional media outlets won’t touch. Shane is also possibly one of the most interesting people currently around. Take the time to tolerate Joe Rogan’s terrible laugh and listen to Shane break down new media, the history of ISIS, North Korea and a swag of other fascinating things.
