Available on Netflix
As host Latif Nasser tweeted about his new show, Connected is "basically if Bill Nye and Anthony Bourdain had an awkward Muslim baby." Nasser, a veteran science journalist of Radiolab podcast fame, now travels around the world to report on amazing science and technology stories. Each episode focuses on a different theme like "surveillance," "poop," and "digits." For each segment, Nasser interviews experts in various science disciplines. He then explains how seemingly different stories in science and technology are actually related. For example, in the "surveillance" episode, he compares human dating apps like Tinder to ZIMS, a computer program that helps zoologists find mating pairs between animals at different zoos. He also explains how facial recognition software is used in both pig farming and for human law enforcement.
