About E-tika podcast

Digital and information technologies improve and simplify our lives. But they also raise new societal issues and challenges. We should discriminate between  the solutions that are technically possible and that are morally  good. Sometimes  we release a technology and only then we discover its effects on people and the society. But that may be too late. In the E-tika podcast we discuss with our guests the social and ethical dimensions of  digital technologies.

The E-tika podcast is produced by the multimedia center for contemporary culture, Nástupište 1-12, in cooperation with the association E-tika. The project was supported from public funds by the “Fond na podporu umenia” fund.

In cooperation with our institute we help to create Season 2.
