Impossible Whopper, Tech Patents, Cheap Fakes
Mikah & Jason picks their favorite interviews from the past year.

• Cal Newport’s new book Digital Minimalism explores how we have grown accustomed to devices as always-on digital companions, and paves the way to returning back to the real world.
• Burger King now offers the meatless Impossible Whopper, and Brian Cooley from CNET dared to try it.
• Tech patents can be downright ridiculous, and Rose Eveleth from Slate reveals why companies have so many of them in their arsenal if they’ll never become something real.
• Britt Paris, co-author of “Deepfakes and Cheap Fakes,” discusses the ways that fakes are being detected and how those systems might not be good enough as the technology gets better.

Hosts: Jason Howell, Mikah Sargent
