We’ve entered a new era. The creation and collection of information plays an ever-increasing — yet often hidden — role in our lives. Algorithms filter all sorts of experiences, from the mundane to the monumental. The fuel that powers and curates these experiences is…data. Data is the new oil; whoever controls data has power. Is this making things better? Worse? Raw Data is a show about how information becomes power. What are the implications for all of us, now that mountains of data are more accessible and malleable than ever?

Episodes post on Thursdays; our first mini-season begins March 21. From Stanford and PRX.

Hosted by Mike Osborne and Andrea Mustain.

Really smart podcast

Raw Data is a really smart show that does deep dives into data and really finds the story there. I'm into the relaunch. The hosts are good too.

Data ARE...well, very pertinent to our lives!

I love these first two episodes of season 4! It’s exciting storytelling that makes me care
about and understand (at least more than I did before!) data collection, and what the heck it has to do with my life (a LOT, it turns out). The history is fascinating, and I cannot wait to learn more about the current use of data collection and its implications for the present and future of our world!

Radio Lab for the Information Age

The 4th season has a makeover: captivating, fascinating, and totally unique. Stories I never would have thought about and make me see the world in a new light.
