On Codebreaker we decipher our complicated feelings about technology by asking straightforward questions with a sense of humor, a sense of awe — and sometimes a sense of dread. In our second season we’ve got one question in mind: Can it save us? Codebreaker isn't just the name of our podcast, it's also a way to listen. Each episode contains a code to help you immediately unlock the next installment and ultimately the entire season. Think you've cracked a code? Go to Codebreaker.codes and enter it. If decoding isn't your thing, that’s OK. We'll put out episodes every Wednesday during the season. Produced by Marketplace in partnership with Tech Insider, and distributed by Marketplace from American Public Media. Follow along on Twitter: @MarketplaceTech
