The Entire History of You

Peep Show's Jesse Armstrong (@jessearmstrong1) has the sole writing credit on this episode, and he brings the point-of-view camera technique with him.

The Entire History of You explores a world where everyone's memories are recorded and available for public viewing.

Photographer James Ide (@Jymography) joins the podcast with an illuminating John Berger quote:

"The camera relieves us of the burden of memory; it surveys us like a god, and it surveys for us.

Yet no other god has been so cynical, for the camera records in order to forget."

It's the first episode where technology is embedded into people.

Still, it remains capable of betraying them, given a determined enough interrogator, and a surprising secret.
