“I really want to like this podcast, but I think there needs to be more critical thinking about the effects of new technology and the alternatives that exist, particularly around AI, autonomous vehicles, social media platforms, etc. The hosts have significant blind spots, and it’s incredibly obvious listening to the types of questions asked to different groups (the questions to San Francisco transit activists vs. heads of autonomous vehicle companies).
All in all, the vibe I get is techy friends having conversations (but not particularly deep ones), laughing at pretty mid jokes, and catching up on newish tech news. It would be fine for an independently produced podcast, but is so far below the typical standard for the New York Times.”
