E25: Postcards in a Digital World

Instagram is the the postcard of this time. That’s what Professor John Murphy said to me as we talked about the intersection of postcards and the digital world. John teaches in the Digital Media & Design school at the University of Connecticut.

We talk about how postcards fit into an instant gratification world, the collection of postcards his father sent his mother on his travels around the world in the military, and how postcards work to connect us in a hyper-connected world.
