The Podcast That Takes an In-Depth Look at the Impact of Technology on Culture
United States
100 episodes
since Nov, 2013


In this week’s discussion Ted and Jon talk about the new Robin Hanson article positing a future ‘hypocralypse’ in which useful hypocrisies become impossible to pull off because of technology. How will people and culture react? What might happen to laws and norms that are very influenced by symbolic concerns? Also they discuss the four main purposes of punishment and ways that various technical advances might better serve those purposes, and what that might look like. PS: Our graphic novel LET GO is now available digitally through ComiXology! A Coming Hypocralyspse? on Overcoming Bias Enhanced Punishment: Can Technology Make Life Sentences Longer? by Rebecca Roache
