#204 - Take control of tracking apps

23 mins | May 6, 2022

Today's episode from 6th May 2022. We begin by exploring the fascinating relationship between inflation and political instability. But just like the chicken and the egg, which came first? We take a look back through history, from Ancient Rome to Nazi Germany, to find out. Then as the weekend looms, many of your friends and family might venture out to meet friends. Will you be tracking their every move to make sure they're safe? We'll show you how to quell the paranoia caused by tracking apps. As price levels rise, we see signs that political instability is again in ascendance. But this isn’t new. History is littered with cases of inflation, and the results are always predictable, explains Stephen Mihm in Bloomberg. Evidence suggests that those closest to us are safer in the world today than in recent decades. Still, the increase in tracking technology has made us more paranoid about the welfare of our friends and family than ever before. For Wired, Amy Paturel suggests ways to regain control if tracking apps have hijacked your psyche. Wake up with Curio is a different kind of morning show that gives you the context behind the news and gets you motivated for the day ahead, every Monday - Friday.
