Walt tells stories about Steve Jobs

If you buy something from a Verge link, Vox Media may earn a commission. See our ethics statement.

Steve Jobs was a complicated character, and we are still waiting for a movie to do him justice. You won’t find that in the current iteration written by Aaron Sorkin and directed by Danny Boyle. There, you will find a portrait painted with broad strokes and artistic liberties that completely miss the man and his complexities and will unfortunately be watched as factual history by people who don't know better. Join Nilay Patel and Walt Mossberg as they discuss the movie, Jobs’ life, and Walt’s own memories of his interactions with Steve himself.

We'd love your feedback and suggestions on how to continue improving the show. And of course, we'd love it if you subscribed in iTunes (and here's the direct RSS feed, if you like), along with The Verge's other great podcasts like Verge ESPWhat's Tech?, and The Vergecast.
