Facebook 2020

Hindsight is 2020, but that won’t stop us from talking about what kind of company and what kind of social network Facebook will be as we head into 2020 and the height of the U.S. political season. Will regulation force Facebook, Twitter, and other massive networks to interoperate with newer, smaller networks? Will the values of free expression online prevail? Will the specter of Chinese censorship change the debate on what we expect from social networks here in America? All in a day’s conversation here at The Jared White Show.

Mental Health and the Creative Freelancer

A few years ago I realized I was suffering from acute depression. It was affecting my work and my quality of life. Today, I am doing much better, but I must remain vigilant not to slide back into old patterns and negative mindsets. As a creative freelancer, there are certain pitfalls which can have an adverse effect on my mental health, and that’s what I talk about in today’s episode. NOTE: you don’t have to be a freelancer to appreciate today’s conversation! There’s a little something here for everybody. :)

Automattic, the folks behind WordPress.com, have purchased the long-suffering Web 2.0 stalwart and promise to usher in a new microblogging renaissance. That, plus a bonus topic on how to track daily progress in popular journaling app Day One. Enjoy the show!

Get SMART

The latest Q3 2019 earnings results are in from Apple, and—depending on who you talk to—they’re either surprisingly stellar or dreadfully terrible. Welcome to the world of news media spin. Also, a new ruling from the EU makes website operators responsible for what Facebook does with user data, a U.S. Senate bill called the SMART Act would ban dark UX patterns from popular social apps, and so much more.

Subverting Notions of the Afterlife

Jared’s feeling under the weather, but The Show Must Go On! In this episode, he talks about Apple funding exclusive podcast content, the demise of Google’s secret Chinese search engine, whether iPadOS’s “desktop class” Safari ushers in a new app-less era, and, of course, this week’s BIGGEST NEWS STORY: Snoppy goes to outer space. That, and oh so much more…

There Goes Jony

It’s the end of an era as famed head of industrial design at Apple, Jony Ive, is leaving the company. In this episode I break down two Apple products I believe embody Jony’s formidable design leadership and which truly set the stage for both Apple’s preset and future: iOS 7 and iPad Pro. I also get to touch on a couple of odd Apple-related news items as well as the new streaming service from WarnerMedia to rival Netflix.

The Rise of Slab-Serif

Spring fashion is all around us, and this podcast is no exception! The Jared White Show and JaredWhite.com have a fresh, funky new design for spring, and it all started…because of an Apple Watch band. Also a throwback to the internet of 1996, depressed superheroes, and gender-swapping cosplay. Never a dull moment!

Putin’ on the Censorship

Ol’ Vladimir is up to his tricks again over in Mother Russia, but that won’t stop us from talking about the open web and geek culture—from Avengers: Endgame to Veronica Mars to the website typography choices of candidates running for President of these United States. I also play jungle music and read toots. You just can’t get this kind of content anywhere else, folks.
