    Land of the Giants – “Facebook Gets a Face Lift”

    Land of the Giants – “Facebook Gets a Face Lift”

    We are sharing the first episode of Land of the Giants: The Facebook/ Meta Disruption. Long before Mark Zuckerberg renamed Facebook Meta and made an unprecedented pivot into the metaverse, he invented a feature that turned Facebook into a social network behemoth. The News Feed, which put your friends’ status updates onto your homepage, changed how we interact online. It was a strong statement of Zuckerberg’s values: that connecting and sharing at scale would be de-facto good for the world. It was also his first public controversy. Follow Land of the Giants to get new episodes every Wednesday.

    Can we stay cool without heating up the planet?

    Can we stay cool without heating up the planet?

    How do we stay cool on a warming planet? Air conditioning is one way, but depending on what kind of AC unit you have, it could be actually polluting the air and making the problem worse. Umair Irfan, climate reporter at Vox, has been looking into this (extremely frustrating) air conditioning paradox.

Unbelievable

The podcast about Facebook is great… I still can’t believe the south Asian lady that’s been in the US since 2000 STILL HAS such a strong accent!

Great show - ? One piece

With the Internet episode where they talk about Chattanooga, I lived in Chattanooga, TN, and lived outside of the borders of the city but we were still able to get EPB (the Internet they discussed), is that right that it can’t expand? Because we were able to get it without issue in Soddy Daisy, TN?! But amazing work on the show, very good reporting!

Lots of repeat episodes

Good show with lots of potential for good content, but there are lots of repeat episodes.
