Cathy O’Neil is the author of the bestselling book Weapons of Math Destruction. Her new book is The Shame Machine: Who Profits in the New Age of Humiliation.
O’Neil explains the power of shame and how in today’s society it is amplified in potentially dangerous and life altering ways by algorithms, social media companies, and big data.
She also details the often contradictory and nonsensical relationship between so-called “cancel culture” and shame.
O’Neil also explores the complex dynamics at work surrounding questions of public shaming, resistance, white privilege, white supremacy and the so-called “Karen” and “Barbecue Becky” phenomenon.
