In episode 18 Ben and Marina discuss the excessive use of smartphones and social networks in the younger generations, and what effect it can have on our minds, ability to reason, and even our democracy.
We look at how many of the founders of these technologies now reject them for themselves and their children, and ask, is this just progress? Is the human being evolving in new ways? Or should we be looking more closely at this as a society?
