Screen Time - setting healthier boundaries with our phones and understanding why society is so habitually wired to them. A fascinating lesson taught by author and tech journalist Becca Caddy.

This week, I am so excited to be joined by the brilliant Becca Caddy, who is a freelance writer who specialises in consumer technology, popular science and the future. Becca’s written a fantastic book called ‘Screen Time’ Your Phone, Your Rules: How to set them, and how to keep them. Our discussion touches on some of the central themes in the book and Becca teaches me how to set healthier boundaries with our smartphones. I learn about the world 'addiction' in context of phone usage, the physiological factors which maintain our tech use and reliance, boredom, manipulation, algorithms, tech manners, work/life tech balance and LOTS more. I adored and learned so much from Becca, so I really hope you enjoy listening!
