Yeah, But It's Not As Simple As That

This week we speak to Yuval Noah Harari about his book Homo Deus, and ask whether we are now at a point where our technology is starting to know us better than we know ourselves. Should we just hand over decision-making power to our fitbits, Facebook and other devices that track our health and personality?

We also hear from a company that has created a kegel tracker placed inside your vagina, and talk to VICE regulars about whether or not there's any point in resisting technological advances that make our lives better.
