What really happens with your Facebook photos? Why are there hidden microphones in Google Nest? And: Pokémon Go exposed as child molesters.

In this episode of Backlight, Harvard professor Soshana Zuboff reveals how Silicon Valley deceives us brilliantly. She is sometimes called the Karl Marx of our time. With her monumental book, The Age of Surveillance Capitalism, she exposed the dubious mechanisms of our digital economy. According to Zuboff, our personal and private experiences are hijacked by Silicon Valley and used as the raw material for extremely profitable digital products.
