  1. Jaron Lanier: Reconstructing the digital economy

    Internet pioneer Jaron Lanier explains why it’s time to accept that the original dream of free content and information on the web is failing. In this talk he outlines how he would reconstruct the digital economy, avoid further concentrations of wealth and power and perhaps even save the middle class.

  2. Throwing rocks at the Google bus

    When Douglas Rushkoff surveys the digital world he sees lost potential and the growing dominance of old-style capitalism. He joins us to talk about his latest book Throwing Rocks at the Google Bus – a wake-up call for a generation which, according to Rushkoff, has lost sight of what the Internet truly has to offer.

    And David Glance, the Director of the Centre for Software Practice at the University of Western Australia, also believes we’ve lost our way and says social media was never as social as we might have imagined.

    Original broadcast was on 20 March 2016.

  8. Chatbot mania and algorithms of oppression

    They’re hidden from view, but increasingly everywhere. They’re the brains behind Google, Facebook, online advertising, and virtual assistants like Siri, Alex and Cortana. Machine learning algorithms are becoming powerful arbiters of our lives, driving all sorts of artificially intelligent systems. But are they discriminating against you without you even knowing it? And, what’s going on with the growing workforce of female chatbots? Does A.I have a white guy problem?

  9. Shelly Kagan on Speciesism

    Peter Singer famously argued that many of us are guilty of speciesism in our dealings with animals - we give unreasonable priority to humans over other the interests of other animals. Speciesism is like racism and other prejudices in many respects. In this episode of the Philosophy Bites podcast, Shelly Kagan outlines and criticises Singer’s arguments for this position, and in the process makes some interesting points about prejudice in general.

  10. t All Adds Up podcast - episode 1: The great Australian property ‘illusion’ exposed

    Our first episode jumps straight into the national controversy over skyrocketing property prices and declining housing affordability.

    Subscribe now to hear Gittins defend home ownership as a "basic Australian right" and expose the illusion at the heart of higher property prices: "The idea that ‘Isn’t it great, house prices have gone up, I feel so much better off’, has got a large element of illusion, unless, of course, you don’t give a stuff about your children."
