The Social Dilemma is a Netflix documentary about the insidious nature of social media featuring former big tech employees, researchers, and critics. We share our review of the film from our perspectives as tech workers and consumers of social media.

Most of us realize we spend more time on our phones than we should. But killing time is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to all the ways social media has taken over our lives.

"The Social Dilemma," a new docudrama from Netflix, explores the design decisions that make social media so addictive as well as the many consequences of our reliance, from data privacy and mental health to the rise of misinformation and conspiracy theories.

In this episode, we share our thoughts on the film and personal strategies for curtailing our social media use.
