Downstream: Silicon Valley Fraudsters Are Lying to Us w/ Paris Marx

Listen on

Episode notes

It’s one of the few things that the late anarchist anthropologist David Graeber and tech billionaire Peter Thiel agreed on: the sci-fi future we were promised has not materialised. Where are the flying cars? Where are the teleportation machines? And why, instead, do we just have 15 different ride-hailing apps to choose from?

In this episode of Downstream, Ash Sarkar sits down with technology writer Paris Marx, author of The Road to Nowhere, to talk about the future we were promised and the Silicon Valley fraudsters who stole it from us.
