Is the Internet an "Out-of-Control Monster"?

Episode Summary

A "completely out-of-control monster." That's what Francois Fluckiger--successor at CERN to the inventor of the internet, Tim Berners-Lee--called the internet on its recent 30-year anniversary. He called it that due to privacy threats, fake news, and online bullying. So we debate the question. Mike and Jason just want to hide the fact that they predate the internet, monster or not.
