Dial Back is a pilot initiative to help us do some soul-searching around the impact of technology on our lives. It’s impossible to even imagine life today without the Internet, social media, email, text messages, GPS, apps, podcasts and everything else you might love or hate about being “connected.” Clearly, technology can make our lives better, but sometimes also worse than we had expected. Stephanie Marudas of Kouvenda Media and Jessica Kourkounis have piloted this episode here and hope to produce more episodes when they’re not doing a million other things.
