Bowling Alone in 2012

In his groundbreaking book, published more than a decade ago, sociologist Robert Putnam warned against the unintended consequences of our modern technological advances. “Bowling Alone: The Collapse and Revival of American Community,” argued that radio and television were increasing our disconnection from family, friends, neighbors, as well as our democratic structures. On today’s broadcast, Cathy talks with Putnam about his seminal work and social media’s impact on today’s society.
