On Codebreaker we decipher our complicated feelings about technology by asking straightforward questions with a sense of humor, a sense of awe — and sometimes a sense of dread. In our second season we’ve got one question in mind: Can it save us? Codebreaker isn't just the name of our podcast, it's also a way to listen. Each episode contains a code to help you immediately unlock the next installment and ultimately the entire season. Think you've cracked a code? Go to and enter it. If decoding isn't your thing, that’s OK. We'll put out episodes every Wednesday during the season. Produced by Marketplace in partnership with Tech Insider, and distributed by Marketplace from American Public Media. Follow along on Twitter: @MarketplaceTech

A surprising spin on tech we take for granted

The first episode about email was a delight. I honestly hadn’t though to ask, “is it evil?” Codebreaker delivered with great stories: A mistyped address, an annoying college listserv, and a hurtful rock band feud. Can’t wait to see what the future episodes are about and what else they dig up. (Although I think I cracked the code so I may not have to wait…)

Yes please!

Ben Johnson is a great host. I'm pretty confident that APM is going to have a winner here.

Such a great concept

It took me about 1.5 minutes to decide that this was an awesome idea for a podcast. Is email evil? I've debated this question in my head many times. I can't wait for the next episode!!!
