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

So informative!

Great show to help you stay informed on what’s happening in Silicon Valley and in tech — the good, the bad, and the really ugly. Super informative, interesting, and great guests. If/Then is doing a terrific job!

Not a techie but I really enjoy this pod

I’m not exactly what I would call a techie. With that being said, I am an engineer so I have a basic understanding of how most machines work today. I thoroughly enjoy how this podcast breaks down a lot of what is going on in the tech industry today and why it matters to those of us not in the industry.


Smart, youthful insights into the latest news from the cyber-sphere. Virtually BS-free, but with an admirable human side that reassures us of the possibility of a decent future
