It’s Tuesday, and in today’s episode we’re talking about taking gambles online.
First up, Paris Martineau explains how teens are finding love by exchanging Instagram handles, killing phone numbers in the process. She and Adrianne Jeffries perform a dramatic reenactment of today’s dating scene, which involves what many see as the lower-risk request for user names instead of digits. A new boo is just a follow away.
After that, Sam Hill talks about his big mistake. He bought a cryptocurrency mystery box from a Twitter account and spent weeks wondering what anyone in his position would: Is it legit or is it a scam? Give this episode a listen to find out if it was worth the chance.
That’s all for today, friends. If you want to take World Dispatch with you on the go, here are the best ways to listen.
