  2. Is Vaping Really Bad For You?

    E-cigs, vapes, whatever you call them they have been touted as a safer alternative to tobacco and even a way for people to quit smoking. But recent studies have found that perhaps they’re not so harmless after all. So who’s right?

  3. Ai-jen Poo: the future of work isn’t robots. It’s caring humans.

    When we talk about the future of work, we usually focus on artificial intelligence, robotics, driverless cars. The future of work, we’re told, is a future where humans cease to be necessary.

    Ai-jen Poo wants to refocus that conversation. When we think about the future of work, she says, we need to think about care workers. Home care work — caring for the elderly and for children — is the fastest-growing occupation in the entire workforce, expanding at five times the rate of any other job. By the year 2030, child care and elder care jobs will be our economy’s single largest occupation. If you’re talking about the future of work and you’re not talking about care work, you’re doing it wrong.

    Poo is a MacArthur "genius" grant-winning activist and organizer. She began her career in New York City, organizing domestic workers, and eventually lobbied New York state to pass the Domestic Workers Bill of Rights. Thanks to her efforts, seven other states have now passed similar legislation.

    Today, Poo is the executive director of the National Domestic Workers Alliance, the co-director of Caring Across Generations, and the author of The Age of Dignity: Preparing for the Elder Boom in a Changing America. In this episode, we talk about how she managed to organize a population of workers that spend most of their lives behind closed doors, why she calls herself a "futurist," and the central paradox of care work in America — that the folks who care for those we love are often the most undervalued and least protected.

  7. Josh Lovejoy from Google Clips

    In this episode, Aidan Simpson interviews UX Designer Josh Lovejoy about the design of the Google Clips camera, building user trust in ‘magical’ products, and ways of using UX to help people feel more in the moment. Learn more about the journeys and creative decisions of designers at Google by subscribing to the Method podcast. A few highlights: On overcoming the myths of magic, neutral AI, 10:22 “We can use technology to connect better with the self that we aspire to be. If we can get over some of these myths… I think we are capable of unlocking a renaissance of personal expression and human connection.” Why the Clips camera still has a photo-capture button, 6:35 “It was a fun internal debate for a long time. We hemmed and hawed and ultimately decided the initial version would not have a button. …But then as we iterated over time, we found [a button helped build] trust—that bonding relationship between user and a new technology.” On the beauty of imperfection, 8:26 “When we tried to get things perfect, it actually was really problematic. Even when we hit that goldilocks sweet spot… users still believed that we must have missed something. [Showing more images that users could delete] made a huge difference in confidence level because the user got to be there. They got to be the curator and have the final say.” On taking an empowering approach, 5:20 “We wanted to build intentionally toward answering the question ‘What is memorable and how can we use technology to help people feel more in the moment?’” Handy info and links for this episode:

    Google Brain: A team at Google working to advance artificial intelligence through research and systems engineering, part of the overall Google AI effort. Google Clips: A wireless smart camera that captures images of familiar people and pets.

    Josh Lovejoy is a Seattle-based User Experience Designer in Google’s Experimental Design Group, where he works at the intersection of product design, ethics, and artificial intelligence. Josh also leads UX for People + AI Research (PAIR), a Google initiative to conduct fundamental research, invent new technology, and create frameworks for design in order to drive a humanistic approach to artificial intelligence.

  10. YANSS 122 – How our unchecked tribal psychology pollutes politics, science, and just about everything else – You Are Not So Smart

    We aren’t treating tribalism as a basic human drive, but that’s what it is. Fast food lowered the cost to satisfy a basic drive, and we grew fat. Then we figured it out. Social media lowered the cost to exhibit tribal behaviors, and we are growing apart. But we can figure this out too. In…
