Is the “death of cash” a good thing? What happens when we use algorithms to decide how much things cost? What exactly is the deal with Bitcoin, and how are bros using it to profit from the hurricane in Puerto Rico? In our episode on Money we also chat about the "illusion" that is designer clothes, the theatre of branding, and the brilliant economic theory found in Terry Pratchett's Discworld books.
The Intersection of Things podcast is hosted by Marianela Ramos Capelo and Ruth Coustick-Deal. Together they discuss the unseen intersections of that topic: with the Internet, with gender, with race, and sexuality. They also often invite badass guests to join us for these chats and bring perspectives that are not being heard elsewhere in the white male dominated world of technology.
