How Long

5 months ago ep. 595 feat. Kyle Chayka 01:13:24

Kyle Chayka is a staff writer at The New Yorker; he returns to How Long Gone to speak about his new book, Filterworld: How Algorithms Flattened Culture. We chat about plain omelets, all the podcasts he's been doing lately, the rise in pain maintenance, the hierarchy of our family desktop computers, maybe I want to get caught, spraypainting angel wings on a wall has been replaced by the gym, commuting to work would fix most of you, R.I.P., Kyle needs help with pants, why he lives in Washington D.C., it's not littering if it's an Eames chair, the only books that sell are dragon-based erotica, the resurgence of Barnes & Noble, and as cogs in the algorithmic wheel, it's important to tell our story.
