Description

Georgia Dow, psychotherapist, and Rene Ritchie, tech analyst, come together each week to talk about how technology affects our culture, humanity, and lives.


Episode Date
Apple Anti-Trust & Anti Big-Tech
00:51:12

Georgia and Rene are back! Their podcast is back! But... the world has changed. Technology is more advanced. Culture is more complicated. And our humanity... well, we need to talk.

This week, topic one is all about Apple and anti-trust, both the hearings and the report that just came out from the U.S. House of Representatives.

Topic two follows up with Amazon, Google, and Facebook, and the differences, similarities, concerns, and possible remedies they're facing as well.

Nebula subscribers will also get the bonus segment — our favorite things of the week!

Apple Clickbait & Google's Pixel Pickle
00:37:41

Georgia and Rene are back! Their podcast is back! But... the world has changed. Technology is more advanced. Culture is more complicated. And our humanity... well, we need to talk.

This week, topic one is all about Apple clickbait. Georgia and Rene used to work in big Apple media. They know all about it. But what is it? How does it work? Why does it work? And can it go too far?

Topic two is all about Google's new announcements, including the Pixel 5, which Rene sees as yet another repudiation of the previous year's Pixel, and Georgia sees as an opportunity to talk about getting everyone on the same page.

Apple Update Zero & Creepy Amazon Drones
00:33:32

Georgia and Rene are back! Their podcast is back! But... the world has changed. Technology is more advanced. Culture is more complicated. And our humanity... well, we need to talk.

This week, topic one is all about Georgia's failure... er... informed choice not to update her operating system and apps, compared to Rene's reckless... er... enthusiastic embrace of all things beta. Humans hate change but also boredom. We're funny that way!

Topic two is all about Amazon's new announcements, including a Ring security drone for inside your house that's either super cool or super creepy, and how they're using cute animal designs try and get microphones in the rooms of our children.

Apple Leak Culture & Social Hypocrisy
00:40:18

Georgia and Rene are back! Their podcast is back! But... the world has changed. Technology is more advanced. Culture is more complicated. And our humanity... well, we need to talk.

This week, topic one is all about Apple Leaker culture — something Rene knows a little about from way back in 2012 when he reported several high profile Apple stories.

Topic two is how we can handle social networks when the U.S government is threatening Tik Tok and Facebook's behavior is making Instagram and Oculus increasingly untenable. Georgia has so many thoughts!
