On this week’s episode of the Dare Daniel podcast, social media warrior Corky McDonnell and “woke bro” Daniel Barnes get to the bottom of this so-called Internet with their review of James Ponsoldt’s The Circle. Starring Emma Watson, Tom Hanks and John Boyega as employees at a cult-like tech company, the irrationally paranoid The Circle examines essential 21st-century privacy issues with all the depth of a Facebook debate. Daniel and Corky put down their damn phones for five minutes to discuss antler chandeliers (#chantlers), Luddite typewriter enthusiasts and the moral ambiguity of kayakers.
