A media pioneer with digital roots dating back to 1984, Jeff Einstein rebranded himself as the "Digital Apostate" in the early 21st century, when he first started writing and speaking about what he describes as our national "meta-addiction to all things media and all things digital." What happens to our time and money and freedom, he asks, once addiction emerges as the rule rather than the exception? He lives now in sunny Delray Beach, Florida, with his better 75 percent and a demented old cat. His most recent videos can be found on Substack (Jeff Einstein 2.0), and he performs standup comedy on the odd occasion he finds himself awake past 9 p.m.
