How is Amazon changing our lives?

Over the last year or so, the SoundQs team has gotten a lot of questions about one Seattle-based company: Amazon.

How green are Amazon's shipping practices?

How has Amazon affected Seattle’s economy and politics?

How might Amazon’s smart speaker and other A-I software be invading our privacy?

They’re all great questions. And happily, we have friends at KUOW who have been trying to find answers. The podcast Primed just launched their third season, looking at how Amazon is changing life as we know it.

Their first episode focuses on the Amazon smart speaker Alexa and how it interacts with kids. And how parents feel about that.

Listen to the episode by clicking the play button above or on your favorite podcast app. SoundQs is a weekly podcast where our KUOW reporters tackle questions submitted by our listeners.
