220 – Stop Techno Dystopia! (w/ Cory Doctorow)
1 hr 54 min

Our rapid technological progress comes with many wonderful–and many horrifying–potentials. Politicians and businessmen seem determined to steer our society towards the horrifying. 

Author and Journalist Cory Doctorow joins the Wrong Boys to help us understand the encroaching tech dystopia, and what we need to focus on to steer back towards the wonderful, liberatory potential of tech.

Theme song by DJ Matt Hogan

Amir Atabeygi, M.D.
We're back with Season Four of Working People! In this urgent episode, we talk with Dr. Amir Atabeygi, a physician at MultiCare Indigo Urgent Care in Thurston County, Washington. On Monday, November 23, amid a terrifying surge in COVID-19 cases around the country, Dr. Atabeygi will join his fellow physicians, physician assistants, and advanced registered nurse practitioners on the picket line as they strike for the basic safety measures their employer refuses to provide. We talk to Dr. Atabeygi about what he and his coworkers face on the job, the rise of "retail health" companies like MultiCare Health Systems, and the growing labor consciousness of traditionally non-unionized healthcare workers.
