In the 1976 movie Network, upon being prompted by news anchor Howard Beale, people in cities all over the USA get up, open their windows, and yell, “I’m mad as hell as hell and I’m not going to take it anymore!”. It is now 2018 and people still seem mad as hell - only now, instead of yelling out our windows, we have the internet to amplify our rage.
Recently, there has been a lot of conversation about outrage on the internet and the impact of the internet on everything from our relationships to our democracy to our psyches. This week we join that conversation. We take a step back and explore the impact of the internet and social media on both our society and each of us individually?
In the end, Brett and Nick ask themselves what they want to do differently moving forward and they provide the opportunity for listeners to ask themselves that question as well.
