A podcast from the team at Gizmodo where we womansplain the latest technology.
This week on Gadgettes, we’re diving into why the company formerly known as Facebook is trying to sell us on the metaverse. Are we all going to strap virtual reality headsets to our faces and exist as virtual avatars for both work and fun? Is that realistic, and does it even sound… pleasant? Then Gizmodo reporter Shoshana Wodinsky, who covers the business of data, explains to us what the Facebook Papers have revealed about how the company tweaks its algorithms—and what you can do about it if you’re deeply embedded in Facebook (or Instagram or WhatsApp). Then please allow us to fangirl over Peloton, our favorite connected fitness cult. We can’t help it; we love the bike (and Cody Rigsby).
