Yeah, But It's Not As Simple As That
About This Show
Is Instagram harder to quit than smoking? Can you ever get rich from gambling? Is it ever ok to masturbate to Facebook photos?
In VICE UK's new podcast, we attempt to answer the questions that Google can't. Questions with complicated, messy answers. It's called "Yeah, But It's Not As Simple As That" because nothing is as straightforward as it seems.

Should We Let Tracking Devices Make Our Decisions For Us?
This week we speak to Yuval Noah Harari about his book Homo Deus, and ask whether we are now at a point where our technology is starting to know us better than we know ourselves. Should we just hand over decision-making power to our fitbits, Facebook and other devices that track our health and personality? We also hear from a company that has created a kegel tracker that goes inside your vagina, and talk to Vice regulars about whether whether there is any point in resisting technological advances that make our lives better.
