Podcast: Why data won’t redeem us

This summer Eurozine launched their podcast titled Gagarin. I was invited to join Réka Kinga Papp, editor-in-chief- of Eurozine, to talk about my book Frictie and the accompanying Eurozine essay Friction and the aesthetics of the smooth.

Listen to the episode over at Eurozine or find it in your podcast app.

“What does the worship of big data have to do with positivism, and how does friction help create resistance? Philosopher Miriam Rasch talks her essay in the inaugural episode of Gagarin, the new Eurozine podcast.”

More podcasts discussing Frictie, data ethics, de-automation, translation and poetry, and much more can be found here (mostly in Dutch).
