Delve - "New Normal" podcast: Life’s Good on Top, But For Everyone Else? with Samer Faraj

News

Published: 15Jun2021

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”?

The ‘New Normal’ is a collaboration between journalist Dave Kaufman and Delve, the official thought leadership platform of McGill University’s Desautels Faculty of Management. Each episode looks in-depth at a different aspect of the new normal that we are all navigating due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
