In this episode, we discuss the themes explored by the Netflix documentary, The Social Dilemma, and try to get at questions like "What is technology supposed to be doing for us?" and "What do we pay when we pay attention?". We also touch on a new framework for talking about attention to fully understand the implications of the deep sense of distraction we all feel.
