Communication Breakdown

As MIT Professor Sherry Turkle sees it, we're buried in our phones. From clandestine peeks in class and meetings, to casual checks in social situations, to full-on avoidance on buses and trains, morning to night, we're obsessed with our online world. It's tempting to slip into our online personas and skip out on the sometimes-messy encounters of real face-to-face conversation. But it's also essential, Turkle says: set up phone-free zones, stop texting and emailing and have a real interaction. Sherry Turkle's new piece in The New York Times is called The Flight From Conversation, and today she joins us to have a real conversation about it.

GUESTS:
  Sherry Turkle, psychologist and MIT professor, author of Alone Together: Why We Expect More From Technology and Less From Each Other
