Show Notes

There are only two industries that refer to their clients as users — the drug and the tech industry. Today, host Sarah Southwell unpacks key lessons from The Social Dilemma, an alarming documentary on the negative impact of social media. Early in the discussion, Sarah highlights how the documentary interviews industry insiders, many of whom created the code behind platforms like Facebook and Instagram. We chat about how social media has taken away our ability to be in the present moment before talking about its addictive properties. Drawing from the movie’s insights, we dive into the advanced state of the artificial intelligence employed by platforms and how it may be smarter than we are. Sarah shares specifics on how social media damages our children and spreads division through fake news, before providing listeners with advice on how we can better handle our media usage. After touching on why we should regulate media use, Sarah calls on us to take a stand to live more joyous and intentional lives. Social media is everywhere. Tune in to hear more about why this might be a bad thing and what we can do about it.
