James Bridle wants us to think about technology in a different way. His book ‘A New Dark Age’ is a slightly foreboding look at our relationship with the digital world, arguing that as it gets more complex our understanding of it diminishes. His work addresses a lot of the themes we talk about on Beyond Today and, as on a Friday we often like to take a step back from the news and hear from someone we’re interested in, we decided to grab him for a chat while he was over from his home in Greece. Here he talks internet cables under the sea, drones drawn on pavements, and how our phones are causing climate change. Producers: Lucy Hancock and Harriet Noble Mixed by Nicolas Raufast Editor: John Shields
