Hosted by bestselling author Malcolm Gladwell, this deep dive into Silicon Valley’s latest fad — self-driving cars — goes beyond the headlines to reveal far more than a basic overview of the burgeoning, but little-understood, technology. Criss-crossing the country in search of cutting-edge laboratories, car culture experts, and AI skeptics, Gladwell encounters incredible demonstrations of automation’s vast potential and troubling implications for how it fits into the next chapter in human civilization. The future is here; the question now is whether we can safeguard ourselves from obsolescence in return for the untold promises of ever-greater mobility.
