Literally Black Mirror ft Taylor Lorenz and Alex Krasodomski

January 14, 2018

This week Riley (@raaleh), Milo (@milo_edwards), Hussein (@HKesvani), and Alex (@AlexKealy), do a two part double header. In Part 1, friend of the show and Daily Beast technology reporter Taylor Lorenz (@TaylorLorenz) phones in from the Consumer Electronics Show in Vegas to explain how nothing works, and the emptiness of the techbro culture that produced it.

In Part 2, we are joined by Alex Krasodomski (@AKrasodomski), a researcher of the Centre for the Analysis of Social Media at the Demos think tank, to talk about the nexus between the conspiracy theorising, the structure of the internet, and (of course) the tech monopolies.

Our theme tune is called herewego by Jinsang, and is available on Spotify.
