Each day, we reach for our phones an average of 150 times; spend nearly 8 hours using some sort of electronic device; and tweet, Instagram and Facebook excessively, often about the most inane things. Are we truly addicted to technology? In this edition of the Smells Like Human Spirit Podcast, Guy Evans examines the extent of our technological dependence, and discusses the potentially damaging effects that new technologies may have on our ability to read and understand each other. Enjoy!
Bonus – also included in this episode is an update on the latest in the Rob Ford saga. Ford, who has now been stripped of most of his powers by the Toronto City Council, vowed an ‘outright war’ in a bizarre rant to Councillors yesterday.
