Podcast: Are We Addicted to Technology?

 

It’s often claimed (and not without good reason) that we are addicted to technology, from the tiny screens of our phones and the temptations of social media to the progressively bigger screens of that multi-generational babysitter: our televisions. But is it actually true that we have such an addiction? This episode looks at the effects of technology on our personal and social lives. You’ll hear about how technology is a double-edged sword, making our lives easier and more complicated at the same time. Most importantly, you’ll learn how to form and maintain a healthy balance in your relationship with technology.
