Complex Subjects Made Simple

I couldn’t recommend this podcast more - I’ve always been interested in complex technologies but I’ve never found a means of digesting that information in a way that made sense. Not until this podcast, that is!

NPR with a brain

The most disappointing podcast I've tried out. The topics are great. Speaker is clear and concise. Good production too. But everything is spun from the left. Recently, listened to one on mapping AI's impact. Was hoping to hear something like Netflix' Social dilemma which described how social media hijacks our emotional impulses. However, the speaker was all about environment degradation, white bias in data, high tech isn't paying taxes, etc. It was like an intelligent episode of an NPR program.

All they said may be true, but I've never heard anything positive about a position from the right and every position the left takes was good. So, I don't know where there objectivity gives way to activism and a one sided view. Saying high tech companies don't pay taxes is just untrue. The companies are owned by stockholders. When their stock goes up, they pay taxes on them. They may not be paying enough, but you need to provide a more sophisticated view; inotherwords both sides even if you dis one side. It's fine to have an opinion, just be complete.
