Premium Audio Experiences that Entertain & Educate
Our award-winning team of journalists retain over two decades of extensive expertise in the technology and media landscape.
From policy to process, we seek to understand how lives are changing alongside rapid breakthroughs in frontier technologies and artificial intelligence. The most talked about issues in tech—deepfakes, bias, explainability, privacy—all have trust as a common denominator. We help our listeners unpack the nuance around how trust is augmented in an age of automation.
Delivered weekly, our show format blends "show me" journalism with a mix of fireside chats, oral histories, narrative storytelling, and documentary-style investigations. We bring you intimate conversations with innovators, scientists, policymakers and entrepreneurs–often taped in labs and research hubs that advance an understanding of what’s really happening.
