Supercharged #149: The Product Bubble

April 27, 2017 at 8:15PM • 1 hour 35 minutes

We're all aware of the bubbles we live in to some extent, and how technologies like Facebook encourage us to stay within them, but unless you live off the grid—and clearly you don't—you're probably affected by your comfortable bubble more than you think. Everything you do, say, and buy creates a feedback loop you may think you've broken, but with the wrong goals in mind it's the bubble you're going to live in for the rest of your life and possibly never know it.

Hosted by Adam Dachis & Darren Herczeg.

April 23, 2017 at 11:45PM • 1 hour 1 minute

The Hollywood of the past will soon cease to exist. The way we consume media has evolved over the last 20-some years to a model most successfully utilized by Netflix. But, is it sustainable? Will we stream our media commercial-free for the next decade, or do we need a more reliable option? This week on Supercharged, we examine the future of broadcast entertainment.

April 23, 2017 at 2:30AM • 1 hour 32 minutes

Negative emotion fuels a lot of our choices in life, whether we're trying to help or hurt—but does it truly have a useful place in our arsenal of options? Sometimes, yes, it's one of those necessary evils, but perhaps not as necessary as we might want to believe. This week we take a deep dive into psychology with a look at academic critiques and the most recent YouTube scandal featuring Daddyofive.
