Georgia Dow, psychotherapist, and Rene Ritchie, tech analyst, come together each week to talk about how technology affects our culture, humanity, and lives.
Georgia and Rene are back! Their podcast is back! But... the world has changed. Technology is more advanced. Culture is more complicated. And our humanity... well, we need to talk.
This week, topic one is all about Apple Leaker culture — something Rene knows a little about from way back in 2012 when he reported several high profile Apple stories.
Topic two is how we can handle social networks when the U.S government is threatening Tik Tok and Facebook's behavior is making Instagram and Oculus increasingly untenable. Georgia has so many thoughts!
Nebula subscribers will also get the bonus segment — our favorite things of the week! Links to that coming soon!
This week, topic one is all about Georgia's failure... er... informed choice not to update her operating system and apps, compared to Rene's reckless... er... enthusiastic embrace of all things beta. Humans hate change but also boredom. We're funny that way!
Topic two is all about Amazon's new announcements, including a Ring security drone for inside your house that's either super cool or super creepy, and how they're using cute animal designs try and get microphones in the rooms of our children.
This week, topic one is all about Apple clickbait. Georgia and Rene used to work in big Apple media. They know all about it. But what is it? How does it work? Why does it work? And can it go too far?
Topic two is all about Google's new announcements, including the Pixel 5, which Rene sees as yet another repudiation of the previous year's Pixel, and Georgia sees as an opportunity to talk about getting everyone on the same page.
This week, topic one is all about Apple and anti-trust, both the hearings and the report that just came out from the U.S. House of Representatives.
Topic two follows up with Amazon, Google, and Facebook, and the differences, similarities, concerns, and possible remedies they're facing as well.

This week, topic one is all about Apple's functional organization — how it works and... when it doesn't?
Topic two deals with Google and the anti-trust case brought by the U.S Department of Justice.
This week, topic one is all about Apple One. Kinda. Also subscription services in general and why we both love and hate bundles.

Nebula subscribers will also get the bonus topic — our favorite things of the week!
This week, topic one is all about the Apple Silicon November Event... but also virtual vs. real world events in 2020, and how and when we'll go back to being together again.
Topic two deals with Facebook intervening to remove policy violations from accounts that... keep violating policy. And is there freedom of speech on someone else's dime?
This week, topic one is all about Apple's new 15% small business program for the App Store... and some of the loudest reactions to it. That is, after Georgia reviews her new iPhone 12 Pro Max and the MagSafe Duo charger.
Topic two deals with conspiracy theories and how you can handle the holidays with family members who have been caught up in them.
This week, we answer your questions about why we're staring at you, what's with celebrity worship, how come YouTubers make funny faces, is there a way to control screen time in 2020, avoiding new gadget envy, and more!
This week, topic one is all about Apple's best apps of 2020 and how they really, uniquely are shaped and defined by the challenges and realities of 2020.
Topic two deals with how influencers apologize and how we react — or don't react — when they do.
