Why'd You Push That Button?
Tech media outfit The Verge adds to its line-up with this clever little show, which asks why we make the choices we do when it comes to technology. Specifically, it's interested in how free those choices are, and how they affect our relationships with actual human beings. Hosts Ashley Carman and Kaitlyn Tiffany, both Verge journos, tackle this with deadpan good humour (e.g. Tiffany, on Tinder super liking: "You literally have nothing to lose because you literally have nothing"), while interviews with users, tech execs and scientists provide useful insight and context. New instalments weekly.
