🎙 Tech-Master Disaster: Part One

Radio interview with Evgeny Morozov. I’m not sure if it’s because of the back and forth with Lydon but it’s a much more fleshed out and broad vision than in his various opinion pieces. They start from the Epstein - Media Lab explosion, then go to the much deeper neoliberal financing and influence, talk about his recommendation to dismantle the Lab, and TED, the influence and connections of the literary agent John Brockman, the Edge network, monopolies, and the gig economy. There’s not transcript so no quotes but definitely worth a listen.
