Episode 3.10 Saying “Enough”
Phones, technological determinism, Christian ethics, and life in community.
We start talking about phones again, and this time manage not to veer off into talking about robots. On the other hand, we do end up talking about a broad Christian ethic of technology, life in communities, and the pull toward social constructivism or technological substantivism.

Two good bits from The Atlantic:
- “Almost Half of Syria’s Population Has Been Uprooted”
- “A Map That Dramatizes (and Helps Explain) the Refugee Crisis”
- “Song of the Sun” by Fell Runner. Used by permission.
- “Winning Slowly Theme” by Chris Krycho, who thinks you should check out the theme for Sap.py, too. Bells are fun!
