In episode 5 of The ‘New Normal’ hosted by Dave Kaufman, Professor Samer Faraj speaks about how the COVID-19 pandemic has created an over reliance on corporate technological behemoths. Faraj breaks down the ever-growing role of digitization in our society and examines who benefits from the UBER-ization of our daily lives: all who take part in the gig economy or only to those who are “on top”?
