Everyone seems to be dating online now because of Tinder. But in swiping for our ideal partner, are we dating different versions of ourselves? How is online dating changing the way we behave online and offline? Pop culture expert Lauren Rosewarne speaks with Thomas Feng about what online dating says about ourselves in the inaugural episode of Picking Up STEAM.
Lauren Rosewarne is a senior lecturer in the School of Social and Political Sciences at the University of Melbourne who writes, researches and comments on sexuality, pop culture, public policy and feminism in the media. She’s also the author of the book, Intimacy and the Internet.
Picking Up STEAM is a podcast by the Faculty of Arts at The University of Melbourne about the human consequences of the weird, ugly and the wonderful advances in science and technology. The podcast is hosted and produced by Thomas Feng, with editing and audio engineering by Gavin Nebauer.
