A Point of View – On Rapid Home Delivery – BBC Sounds


Zoe Strimpel reflects on the impact of rapid home delivery on the way we live our lives, and asks what our human experience might lose from this democratisation of laziness.

“A whole generation is about to come of age experiencing goods and service as simply things you can have delivered to your doorstep, fast. Will their brains cease to distinguish between different types of desire and demand?…Will they lose the capacity to form plans and commit to them, plans as minor as what to cook later that night?”

Producer: Sheila Cook
