This should exist

Podcasts like this are important in ensuring we stay mindful, not only as inventors of tech but also as end users. I loved the composition and the way Caterina helps us to embrace new tech concepts with our eyes and ears open. really thought provoking - good job.

Mostly great but cut the awful sound effects

Intelligent discussion about interesting new technologies.

HOWEVER the cheesy, incessant sound effects make it almost unbearable to listen to the actual podcast! Please for the love of god stop with the sound effects!

Refreshingly intelligent approach to challenging tech.

This podcast strikes a perfect balance of challenging tech in a way that is informed and well-iintentioned, rather than systematically paranoid and confrontational.
I love the moments when Caterina asks the questions which the inventors themselves hadn’t yet got round to considering.
A new firm favourite for me, congrats to the team involved.
