Episode Summary

It's Part 1 of our two-part Digital Detox! 

In this week's episode, we give you a two-step exercise to help you get rid of unused apps and think critically about how you use the ones you keep.

Once a month, make sure you grab some time to remove any of the unused apps on your phone. Each one represents a potential opportunity for fascists or weirdos to access your information and maybe even your microphone.

Here are some excellent tips from The Washington Post on how to greyscale your phone and use the Digital Wellness features to place timers on the apps you decide to keep.

All this, and Roger returns to explain a vicious cycle between tech companies who "borrow" your data, and the media that covers their borrowing.
