Should This Exist?

It's the question of our times: How is technology impacting our humanity? "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.

Customer Reviews

Her name is appropriate. Fake

This is an advertisement disguised as a podcast. Just like any other commercial it’s full of fun noises and jingles to grab your attention and keep you focused on what they are trying to sell.

It’s a good concept focusing on the impact of emerging technologies but the host puts my guard up and the fact that she basically doesn’t ask any challenging questions just reaffirms my suspicions.
Gonna pass on this until, and if, they get a track record of actually having integrity.

Seems like a rich kid club getting together to try to get more money for themselves and their ventures. Hopefully I’m wrong but that’s my first impression.


was looking for something different ... the friendly/commercial/mainstream approach is just lame.

Interesting topics, too produced and fluffy

The topics are interesting and the overall goal of this podcast seems worthwhile exploring, but the extra sound effects make the podcast feel too gimmicky. I would prefer just hearing Caterina interview the guests. I feel like the producers put way too much effort into making the podcast “fun” and “engaging” - they don’t have to do this and can trust listeners to intellectually engage with these topics without so much production (see Tim Ferriss Show). Also, the fact the the first use mentioned for Halo was for “dope wedding videos” really turned me off. The first thing I’d think of use case wise would be to help re-educate people who are older and losing jobs due to increased automation learn new employable skills.
