It's the question of our times: How is technology impacting our humanity? Coming February 21, 2019, Should This Exist? invites the creators of radical new technologies to set aside their business plan, and think through the human side: What is the invention’s greatest promise? And what could possibly go wrong? Show host Caterina Fake (Partner, Yes VC; Cofounder Flickr) is a celebrated tech pioneer and one of Silicon Valley’s most eloquent commentators on technology and the human condition. Joined by a roster of all-star expert guests who have a knack for looking around corners, Caterina drops listeners into the minds of today’s ingenious entrepreneurs and guides them through the journey of foreseeing what their technology might do to us, and for us. Should This Exist? is a WaitWhat original series in partnership with Quartz.

Hosting this podcast
Hosting this podcast has been one of the most fulfilling parts of my career in technology. I've always seen one of my principal jobs as humanizing technology--which can often be so dehumanizing. We are powerful and can build just about everything. But we should be asking not only CAN this exist, but SHOULD this exist. Thanks for joining us in this conversation and listening!
Crazy Podcast Nut
The trailer sounds terrific. The amount of technology pushing into our lives scares the hell out of me. Super cool to have a podcast that looks at the unintended consequences of this stuff — both the good and the bad. Can't wait to listen. (PS - great quality, by the way. so much on iTunes just isn't well produced.)
Can't wait to listen!
Love Caterina Fake, and can't wait to hear this show!
