Your Undivided Attention, a podcast from Center for Humane Technology, has joined the TED Audio Collective, a collection of podcasts for the curious.
Co-hosts Tristan Harris and Aza Raskin explore the incredible power that technology has over our lives — for good and for bad. Featuring in-depth conversations with academics, activists, and experts discussing the impact of technology in political, social and economic change, Your Undivided Attention centers around the urgent need for humane technology that supports our shared well-being and ability to tackle complex global challenges.
“The current technology ecosystem profits from attention, polarization and deepening extremism, but it doesn’t have to be this way,” said Tristan Harris, co-host of Your Undivided Attention and co-founder of Center for Humane Technology. “At Center for Humane Technology, we believe that technology that protects our well-being and unleashes the very best of humanity is possible. That’s why we’re thrilled that Your Undivided Attention is joining the TED Audio Collective so we can share our learnings from inspiring leaders across sectors on what we can do together to catalyze a more humane future.”
Co-hosts Tristan Harris and Aza Raskin, along with Randima Fernando, also founded Center for Humane Technology, a nonprofit organization dedicated to radically reimagining our digital infrastructure and driving a comprehensive shift toward humane technology that supports our collective well-being, democracy and shared information environment. Harris and Raskin were featured in the 2020 Netflix documentary The Social Dilemma, which explored the machinations of social media and its grip on civilization.
TED’s director of audio Michelle Quint shares, “We’re excited to support the urgent and essential mission of Your Undivided Attention and proud the show has chosen the TED Audio Collective as its new home.”
Your Undivided Attention will remain ad-free as a part of the TED Audio Collective.
