Algorithms try to tell us what we want, curating feeds and suggesting new picks, but the limited context available has us second guessing–and so the scrolling continues. It’s not until we have those fantastically random conversations with our friends that these shows, songs, and movies become that much better. Join us as we discuss the questionable suggestions from our devices and search to discover that sweet “New Fire” movie, show, or track.
