Every 2nd Friday of the month, from 11:00am to 12:00pm (noon).

Analyzing how to use science, medicine & technology to benefit society and keep it from harming us.

How do the latest technologies affect our communities? How can we use science to benefit society and how do we keep it from harming us?

KBOO's The Digital Divide attempts to answer these questions and ask a few of our own through interviews, recordings, and commentary. The show touches upon such issues as open source, privacy, transparency, intellectual property, free speech, accessibility, hacking, net neutrality, file sharing, piracy, social networking, pollution, bioethics and more.
