In this episode, Niall is joined by cyberpsychologist Dr Ciarán Mc Mahon to talk all about the anxieties of WhatsApp. Do you ever wake up in a sweat realising you haven’t replied to someone? Struggle to keep up with your group chats? Do you feel the pressure to be constantly reachable in the ‘always on’ modern world?
Ciarán is a director of the Institute of Cyber Security and the author of ‘The Psychology Of Social Media’. He and Niall dive into the nitty gritty of how WhatsApp is affecting our heads, along with the power of big tech, how apps are hacking our brains and the worrying long term impact they could have on real human connection.
