In this special edition of Word of Mouth: are we catching up with technology? This week we'll explore the very human way we interact with technology; resistance is futile.

Are gamers the new athletes? Video games as art; survivors of atrocity preserved holograms; the emerging field of space law (yes, that's a thing!); the users of internet 1.0: why they like it way more than Facebook; the dangers and temptations of e-cigarettes; the "Nasty Effect" of online commentary; and re-runs...turns out, they might be good for you.

Rebecca oversees the team that makes NHPR podcasts, including Outside/In and Civics 101. She has previously served as NHPR's Director of Audience & Engagement, Digital Director, and Senior Producer for Word of Mouth.
