The existential threat posed by Big Tech (Part I)

Hosted by

Today's big tech monopolies aren't like those of the Gilded Age. Instead of dominating a single industry like the oil business or steel production, Google, Amazon, Facebook and Apple "aspire to encompass all of existence." That's according to journalist Franklin Foer, national correspondent for the Atlantic. His new book is World without Mind: the Existential Threat of Big Tech. (Listen to Part II.)
