Waking Up to the Facebook Catastrophe: Team Human with Roger McNamee

Podcast Mixtape

Monday March 4 2019 • 7:00pm - 8:30pm

Overview

Team Human is a podcast that strives to amplify human connection. Each week host Douglas Rushkoff engages in real-time, no-holds-barred discussions with people who are hacking the machine to make it more compatible with human life, and helping redefine what it means to stay human in a digital age.

Join him for a live taping of the show with guest Roger McNamee, original Facebook investor and Mark Zuckerberg’s mentor. He’ll explain how “a dystopian technology future overran our lives before we were ready.” This is the case for breaking up Facebook before it breaks democracy itself.

 

About the Host

Author, media theorist, and professor Douglas Rushkoff has written many books including Program or Be Programed, Present Shock, and Throwing Rocks at the Google Bus. They all look deep into the question of reprogramming society to better serve humans. With each episode of Team Human, Rushkoff grapples with complex issues of agency, social justice, and all those quirky non-binary corners of life in a highly approachable and engaging podcast.
