Trampled Underfoot Podcast – 139 – To Err Is Truman

In Episode 139 of the Trampled Underfoot Podcast: Mark Lindsay did the unthinkable – he watched a movie that Eloy Escagedo suggested he watch almost 2 years ago. Yes, we’re talking about the 1998 Jim Carrey film, The Truman Show. This not only opened up a conversation about the movie, it spawned other diversions that are related to the premise of the movie. Was it inspired by a book? Was it inspired by an episode from the 1980s re-boot of The Twilight Zone? Is there really such a thing as The Truman Show Delusion?

Next, the question of how comfortable we are with giving away our privacy in exchange for access to entertainment and information returns for a second round. The hosts discuss the subject and expand on the concept of Terms Of Service Agreements. What are we giving our favorite social media platforms permission to do with our info? What are we freely giving away in order to use their platforms?

Lots of questions and a few answers in this episode of Trampled Underfoot Podcast, so strap yourself in, grab your pineapple, and hang on! It’s going to be a bumpy ride!
