Podcast by Paris Marx

Tämä on ilmainen podcast, jota voit kuunnella kaikilla podcast-alustoilla. Voit kuunnella kaikkia ilmaisia podcasteja Podimo-sovelluksessa ilman tilausta.

Silicon Valley wants to shape our future, but why should we let it? Every Thursday, Paris Marx is joined by a new guest to critically examine the tech industry, its big promises, and the people behind them. Tech Won’t Save Us challenges the notion that tech alone can drive our world forward by showing that separating tech from politics has consequences for us all, especially the most vulnerable. It’s not your usual tech podcast.
