Land of the Giants

Launches July

Today’s “information age” is predominantly powered by five major technology companies: Facebook, Apple, Amazon, Netflix, and Google – or “FAANG”. Each season, we’ll dive into one corporation and examine the ways it’s changed our lives – for better and for worse.

First up: The Rise of Amazon, hosted by Recode’s Jason Del Rey. In less than two decades, Jeff Bezos scaled an online marketplace for books into the world’s most valuable company. But at what cost? From Alexa to Prime, we’ll examine how the retailing juggernaut has infiltrated our homes and changed the way we shop, work, and live.
