At the beginning of the last decade, internet companies and social media were championed for their capacity to connect us all, democratize how we send and receive information, and create new pathways for commerce. Our world was being transformed, and it would only unleash limitless creative potential.

Fast forward to today, where we’re reckoning with unexpected side effects — an “always-on” work life, increased anxiety and depression, data collection on an unprecedented scale, unregulated flow of false information, and apps offering slick alternatives to human contact.

So let’s gather IRL to discuss what we’re trading for convenience — from comfort sharing our physical spaces and making eye contact, to our sense of collective values. Journalist Angélique Roché (NBC News, Syfy Wire, Marvel) hosts, guests to be announced.
