About the show
Why have we gone from tech adoration to the current techlash? How did we get here, and will the tech industry correct its path?
On Tues, March 10th, Funny as Tech will explore the techlash with some incredible guests who offer tremendous insight into some of the issues facing tech and what we can do to fix them.
Special guests for this sure-to-be-memorable night include Yaël Eisenstat (Visiting Fellow at Cornell Tech in the Digital Life Initiative, former CIA, former Global Head of Elections Integrity Operations in Facebook’s business integrity org), Joe Toscano (author of Automating Humanity, founder of BEACON), & Stephanie Humphrey (Technology Contributor for ABC News). We’ll be kicking the evening off with standup by data science comedian Andrea Jones-Rooy!
This show is being taped for podcast.

“Those who like their comedy on the nerdy side will find just that in the blend of tech and jokes that this show and podcast provides.” -The New York Times
“While shifts in technology now affect all of us, they’re usually discussed in the ivory tower or at industry conferences. Like any subject involving niche expertise, future speculation and no clear-cut answers, it’s hard to make entertaining. A show like Funny As Tech presents an alternative: an expert who quotes studies from PricewaterhouseCoopers with a comedian who can make it digestible on the fly.” -Engadget
