This week we cover bringing your parents to a job interview, the case against a universal basic income, and why we shouldn’t use science fiction to regulate AI. Our interview this week is with Corbin Barthold, Internet Policy Counsel at TechFreedom and host of the Tech Policy Podcast. We talk about the history of podcasting, how consumer tech impacts political alliances, how people build virtual communities, and why the pessimists are usually wrong. Free the Economy is produced and hosted by Richard Morrison and edited and co-produced by Ryan Kracinski.
