Should This Exist?

Many of us are surrounded by technology with little thought given to how it may be affecting us or our society; new technologies enter the market on what can seem like a daily basis. Launched in February 2019, Should This Exist? is a new podcast that "drops listeners into the minds of today's edgiest entrepreneurs and guides them through the journey of foreseeing what technology might do to us, and for us." Topics explored in this podcast's roughly 45-minute episodes thus far include chatbot virtual therapists powered by artificial intelligence, open-source drones that can be used as tools for good or as weapons, and supersonic airplanes that could travel at twice the speed of sound. Should This Exist? is produced by WaitWhat in partnership with Quartz and hosted by Caterina Fake, a Silicon Valley leader and co-founder of the photo-sharing website Flickr. Visitors can stream episodes and access transcripts on the show's website, and those interested can subscribe via platforms such as Apple Podcasts, Spotify, and Google Play.
