Our online life is real life. We walk, talk, work, LOL and even love on the Internet – but we don’t always treat it like real life. Host Manoush Zomorodi explores this disconnect with stories from the wilds of the Web and gets to the bottom of online issues that affect us all. Whether it’s privacy breaches, closed platforms, hacking, fake news, or cyberbullying, we the people have the power to change the course of the Internet, keeping it ethical, safe, weird, and wonderful for everyone. IRL is an original podcast from Mozilla, maker of Firefox and always fighting for you.

Great resource

Really love their insights and helping me navigate the virtual/real world. Seems questions I’ve always wondered about keep getting answered here - uncanny.

Too surface-level and one-sided

The idea behind this podcast is sound and comes from an organization that has a pretty good reputation for supporting their ideas. But there is way too much political discussion in this podcast when there are so many challenging technical and business reasons why a lot of consumer digital technology is the way it is today. They could have spent more time talking about the hows and why, but instead this is no different than any uninformed nonsense you can find on the front page of Slate.

There is a ton of bashing on white people throughout these episodes as well, which I found ironic and hypocritical. They spend half an episode talking about how the reason Twitter and Facebook are prone to spreading misinformation is because they're developed by white people (which isn't really even true). Sometimes I wonder if the narrator and her guests hear themselves talking. Mozilla's dev shop is filled with white people too; maybe they should fire them all if they're so incapable because of their skin color.

Worth Your Time

I just started listening with Season 4 but I'm really enjoying the podcast. I learn something valuable each and every episode. Manoush is the best!
