The Periphery used to have a tech focus, and we described ourselves as society and culture podcast disguised in tech.
But…here’s the thing. As we wrapped on season 2 and started brainstorming this season, we found ourselves feeling a bit boxed in. There are a lot of interesting peripheral conversations that are sometimes made less interesting, at least to us, when we’re restricted to discussing them through the lens of tech. So while the disruptive and powerful technologies that are transforming our society will always be an important element of this podcast, we are adopting a more sociological approach to understanding what technology means and its connections to culture and power. But do not fret. Our focus will always be geared toward bridging the two sides of the periphery: those empowered at the frontier and those on the margins that are left out.
