Episode 158: "In the Future, We Will Photograph Everything..."
5 days ago
With the proliferation of cameras in modern smartphones, tablets, laptops and more, digital photography has entered the cultural mainstream. Many of us reflexively take selfies during travel and pose for memorable moments with loved ones. In 2016, Om Malik of The New Yorker wrote an article entitled "In the Future, We Will Photograph Everything and Look At Nothing," examining at our photographic tendencies and how the abundance of imagery has altered our relationship to it and to our memories. How do photographs become placeholders for memory? Why do we rely so heavily on imagery to capture and enrich narrative? How might we be missing out on lived experiences because of the cultural capital placed upon pictures?

an OK show!
Technical Ability: Competent
Structure: none, really - just discussing a topic.
Hosts: Meh. Interesting people, but basically share the same viewpoint. Show tends to be the two hosts echoing each others' thoughts. Needs an opposing host (a woman? a conservative?) to be truly engaging.
