We didn't want to have a discussion about Netflix's The Social Dilemma, but, somehow, we just felt compelled to do so. It was almost like we had a generally unlikable character from a TV series about advertisers' attempts to manipulate consumer behavior in the 1950s and 1960s transplanted in triplicate into an AI that was optimizing Netflix's reach and engagement by getting us to talk about the movie. OR, it addresses a very real issue (a...dilemma, even?) in an approachable manner that, if you're like us, has alarmed your friends and relatives. It certainly seemed worth a discussion, so we had one about it! For complete show notes, including links to items mentioned in this episode and a transcript of the show, visit the show page.
