OUTRAGE MACHINE How Tech Amplifies Discontent, Disrupts Democracy--And What We Can Do About It

by | Read by Justin Price, Bolton Marsh, Tobias Rose-Stockwell

Contemporary Culture • 12.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2022

It's not just you. Social media is built around a model that encourages conflict and rewards users with more of the same. It's refreshing that Justin Price's performance is so warm and, in a welcome contrast to the subject matter, thoughtful and evenly paced. Listeners are provided a clear, concise history of the Internet and social media. Why do people gravitate so quickly to disreputable reporting even though it's demonstrably false? We thrive on immediate gratification, and social media can publish information without having to vet it--unlike reputable news sources. The quick confirmation so many consumers seek puts us where we are now. Price's approach is comfortably gentle while maintaining a forthright tone that inspires trust.
