003 – Because Internet, Mothers Against Digital Danger

Summary

Ashish Kulkarni and Aadisht Khanna discussed a book about language on the internet, and a podcast episode about what it would take for the internet to disappear. The book was Gretchen McCulloch’s Because Internet, and the podcast was the episode Mothers Against Digital Danger from Rose Eveleth’s Flash Forward. As always, Aadisht and Ashish digressed a lot, and especially into nostalgia for the internet of the 1990s and the early 2000s.
