The Rest Is History

94. Silicon Valley Part 2

The Rest Is History

The rise of social media is the central subject of our second instalment with tech pioneer Marc Andreessen. Tom Holland and Dominic Sandbrook ask whether social media is the principal force behind an increase in populist politics. The โ€˜Americanisationโ€™ of culture plus Marcโ€™s theory on why software is the closest thing to real life magic also feature.
