In this episode of the podcast, Imani shares her speculations that the beloved holiday tradition of Elf on the Shelf may be secretly preparing children for a future surveillance state. We discuss the concept of panopticism and the ways in which surveillance can shape our society. We also discuss a real-life case of biometric surveillance gone awry, in which a woman was turned away from seeing the Rockettes after software identified her as a lawyer. Join us for a thought-provoking and in-depth examination of the bizarre ways emerging tech affects our lives.
