Taylor Owen and David Skok have known each other for many years; their work in democracy and journalism ensures that their paths often cross. Taylor is an academic studying technology’s transformative impact on democracy. David has spent his journalism career in the thick of an ever-changing media landscape. They both recall one meeting at a restaurant in Toronto about ten years ago, when Taylor brought together a group of academics and journalists to discuss how technology was reshaping society. David was skeptical, and proclaimed to the room that nobody cares about privacy and technology.
A lot has changed since that meeting. Technology’s impact on society, the economy and democracy is evident, and today, people care. On the Big Tech podcast, Taylor and David will unpack the nuanced challenges that technology presents.
