144 | The Nightmare of Surveillance Capitalism

We talk to Shoshana Zuboff about The Age of Surveillance Capitalism, her game-changing account of what's gone wrong with the world of big tech and how to fix it.  What is surveillance power and why is it destroying the things we value?  How have we allowed this to happen?  Where will the resistance come from?  Plus we ask whether the real problem here is technology or capitalism itself.  With John Naughton.

65 | John Gray

David talks to writer and philosopher John Gray about pretty much everything, from the Corbyn cult to the craziness of cryogenics.  John tells us how to make the connections between technology, populism and religion and he explains why the worst may be still to come.  Plus we ask whether democracy is really finished.  A conversation about the big stuff, recorded in the stationery cupboard at the London Review of Books.
