6. Hashtag inventor (and much more) Chris Messina
Chris Messina is the inventor of the hashtag, but he’s been asked about that far too many times for us to bring it up much here. Good thing that he’s a deep thinker about products, platforms, and social engagement, and has lots to say about topics we love on this podcast. Chris joins Matt Navarra and Martin SFP Bryant to discuss whether social media is at an inflexion point, and where it goes next. We also go in deep on Instagram’s motivations behind launching the rather threadbare new app Threads; whether users will ever be asked to pay for Facebook; how to deal with information overload, and lots more. Meanwhile, Matt and Martin talk over the week’s news and share the latest tests and tools you need to know about. Geekout with Matt Navarra is sponsored by Pinterest.

4. Facebook's Andrew 'Boz' Bosworth
Andrew 'Boz' Bosworth is Facebook's VP responsible for VR and AR. He joins Matt Navarra and Martin 'SFP' Bryant moments after stepping off the stage at Oculus Connect 6, Facebook's latest VR developer conference. He talks us through some of the biggest news from the event and we explore how important virtual worlds could become to our lives in the future.  Is Facebook Horizon a second chance for Second Life? How will Oculus Business bring VR to the office? Can Facebook convince the public to put Portal cameras in their living rooms? How do the forthcoming AR glasses fit into Facebook's plans, and why was Boz's doctor using Google Glass while treating him recently? And is Facebook the right company to be doing all of this VR and AR stuff anyway? Meanwhile, Matt and Martin talk over the week’s news and share the latest tests and tools you need to know about.

3. UK Parliament's Damian Collins
Damian Collins has social media regulation in his sights, and as chair of UK Parliament's DCMS select committee, he's got strong opinions on how to whip the tech companies into shape. Here he joins Matt Navarra and Martin SFP Bryant to explain why tech companies seem to particularly fear scrutiny from UK politicians, whether we need international rules to govern big tech, what he thinks about Netflix's The Great Hack (in which he appeared)... and just what is Mark Zuckerberg's deal, anyway?  It's a wide ranging and fascinating chat with a man leading the charge toward greater regulation of the apps we all use.

2. CNN's Kerry Flynn
CNN media reporter Kerry Flynn joins Matt Navarra and Martin SFP Bryant to discuss the future of social media. Is there room for new platforms to break through? Is Facebook doomed to be associated with data misuse forever? What will tech look like in 10 years time? And is TikTok just a fad? We also get nostalgic over FriendFeed and Yo, and find out who Kerry would rather have over for dinner: Jack Dorsey, Mark Zuckerberg, or Evan Spiegel.  And we talk over the week’s news and share the latest tests and tools you need to know about.
