Why’d you like that celebrity photo on Instagram? Why’d you leave that restaurant review on Yelp? Why’d you text in lowercase, or turn on read receipts, or share your location? Ashley Carman and Kaitlyn Tiffany ask real people the hard, meta, and occasionally silly questions about the way technology influences our thinking, changes our behavior, and affects our social lives. Produced by The Verge and the Vox Media Podcast Network.

Interesting and easy talks

It’s really entertaining to see how the hosts can take a really mundane thing and talk about it for quite a lot of time. Also the interviews with people are just brilliant, you never can tell that a person next to you is putting so much thoughts into their emails

Favorite podcast ever

The Verge / The Goods have lots of podcasts on their own about various topics, but if I could only pick one to listen to for the rest of my life, it'd be this one. The topics are admittedly slight, but that sort of builds into the charm of listening to Kaitlyn and Ashley go back-and-forth about their lives and how much cultural subtext can be built into a small piece of technology. It's way too much fun. Haters can have their TED talks, I'll be over here listening to podcast gold.
