BLACK MIRROR: (Starts at 43:20) Alexandria and Jesse discuss ‘Nosedive,’ the first episode of Black Mirror’s third season. This episode features a future overtaken by a social media app in which users rate each other for everyday interactions. We discuss similar apps in the real world, and the ways in which social media can prevent positive human interaction.
Jesse and Alexandria get sidetracked by Frasier and baked beans in the latest Patroncast! https://www.patreon.com/posts/37455091
