60. We Live in a Society (of Control) (ft. Liv Agar‪)‬ This Machine Kills

    • Technology

Cold open: Garden Glossary - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pBMRWwjGJHQ

It’s time for theory chat! To analyse the techno-politics of smart systems, we need good theories at hand. And we’re joined by the great Liv Agar – philosopher, podcaster, streamer – to discuss the hyper-prescient work of Gilles Deleuze on societies of control and the transition away from disciplinary societies. We’re talking rhizomes, dividuals, passwords, capitalism, power, and smart technology as we break down a critical theory for understanding a society driven mad by control.
