I’m solo this week for the opener, so I tried out sharing all my hot takes on:

  1. The elections coming up in Slovakia and Poland.

  2. My takeaways from Bruce Mehlman’s latest quarterly trends report about what is happening in U.S. politics and policy - including AI regulation.

  3. The tech issues the Supreme Court will likely be taking up in the next term.

Then, for the main interview, I welcome Ryno Valdryno to the podcast. Ryno worked on the Indonesian elections at Facebook and, until recently, was the head of policy for the country.

We had a fascinating discussion about the fact that Indonesia might have three elections next year, who the prominent political candidates and parties are, how the country conducts its elections, and the role online platforms will play in the overall process.

I hope you enjoy!
