Episode #3: Social Media's Pandering News Feeds

Are we not satisfied? Darien and Toby talk about why our news feed wants to please us, and whether that is making us more miserable? Toby dismisses Orwell's 1984 as an overused, and inaccurate metaphor for big data targeting, but suggests an alternative Orwellian narrative. Darien argues that the danger of social media bubbles may be overblown, and may actually be an improvement on traditional media.
