In this, the second episode of 'Telling It Like It Is', we explore Technology with writer, journalist and digital technology expert Ian Douglas.
Ian has written 'Is Technology Making Us Sick?', part of the RSA's Big Idea series. The book comes after a working lifetime at Telegraph Media Group where he was Digital Development Editor, The Spectator where he was Head of Digital, and the British Library where he overhauled their digital presence.
Join us as we explore how technology is shaping the world we live in and the choices we make, while giving us the illusion of autonomy and freedom. We discuss how this illusion is making us sick, as individuals and as a society, and explore how we might step out from technology's shadow.
Part philosophy, part explainer, part prescription, this podcast gives us space to think about complex issues in ways we might not always allow ourselves to.
