Encouraging and also devastating

I recently graduated with a degree in Computer Science and I've been very discouraged by how technology is used and discussed. I've had a lot of difficulty feeling excited about my degree or any career I might end up in. This podcast is super encouraging because there are other tech people out there with similar beliefs who are appalled by a lot of the practices in the tech world too, but it's devastating because the tech industry is still terrible and the podcast takes time to deep dive into those issues.

Thought provoking, trenchant

This podcast is a good antidote to the tech bro libertarian ideology that so dominates Silicon Valley.

extremely good podcast

GIU taught me what cybernetics is, seriously enriched my understanding of marxism, and it’s the only leftist podcast that doesn’t make me feel like I’m trapped at the bottom of an abandoned well. Check it out!!
