Here is the direct MP3 download for the Evil Genius Chronicles podcast, September 23, 2013.
In this show I react to the Louis CK video going around about how smartphones are making us worse. I discuss that specifically and also point out that the notion that technology is why our kids are worse is an ancient idea; I talk about the book Generations by Strauss and Howe and use Dr. Laura to refute the nostalgic notion that things used to be better; I talk about how most of my friendships are now a hybrid of online and off in a satisfying way.
