61. The Circle

Jennifer and Kaylia talk about the evils of privacy vs the evils of entitlement, the relative charm factor of Emma Watson, and how a book neither one of us loved still had some really cool provocative bits… that somehow got left out of the film. Hopefully, our episode elicits more “smiles” than “frowns.” Enjoy!

The Circle is a 2013 dystopian novel written by American author Dave Eggers.The novel chronicles tech worker Mae Holland as she joins a powerful Internet company. Her initially rewarding experience turns darker.
