If Then: is a show about technology, society, and power. Each week, Slate‘s April Glaser and Will Oremus take you on a lively tour of the tech news that actually matters, from fake news in your Facebook feed to the algorithms that want your job to the Uber drivers who want a job with benefits. With news-making interviews of key tech-industry figures, fascinating academics, and top tech journalists, they explore not only how the technology that’s shaping our world works, but the ideas, ideologies, incentives, and biases that underlie it. And guess what: They don’t always agree.

Customer Reviews

One of my favorites

Read the 42 reviews (so far), and the positive reviews have covered what makes this podcast enjoyable and significant. I'm in the midst of binge listening, and as others point out, I also feel that the insight, interviews and social consciousness of this show is great. Not sure why listeners complain about the political taint - that's more important then ever and I'm still shocked at people in my life who have no understanding of what's happening in our society right now... I was nervous about the interview with the gun rights activist, and it was a true testament to April and Will in their skill to host an engaging interview that I didn't have to skip that episode.


I prefer my shows politics free and should politics is necessary to the show, you discuss both sides. It seems anyone who loves Science would know that.

My New Favorite Podcast

April Glaser is truly terrific, and Will Oremus is also strong. Overall this is well done, very interesting, and usefully informative.
