This week, Peggy Johnson stopped by to talk with Re/code Executive Editor Kara Swisher on the “Re/code Decode” podcast.

In a wide-ranging discussion, Johnson touched on why she left Qualcomm after a two-decade-plus run there, Microsoft’s recent string of high-profile acquisitions and CEO Satya Nadella’s vision for the future. Johnson says Microsoft is working to be “Silicon Valley’s best friend,” a large tech company that can provide everything from office software to cloud-computing services.
