54 - What if Your Boss Was an Algorithm?

July 14, 2020

The gang inspects our dystopic reality and asks some probing questions - Why does Elon Musk want backsies on his Ye endorsement? What if gig workers’ pay reflected their effort? What if your smart fridge ratted you out to your insurance company? What the hell is a democratic task force? This episode features a deep dive into David’s most recent essay for Real Life Magazine, which is now out in podcast form, narrated lovingly by Ironweeds’ own Britney Gil! And stick around for our first installment of Lenin’s State and Revolution.
