The Memeing of Life

In today’s Big Story podcast, a famous cat died, and then we got an email. Today’s episode is what happens when you follow a viral story to its logical conclusion. You’ll learn where memes come from, how long they’ve been around, what they signify to us and how communication is coming full circle, from hieroglyphics to emojis.

GUEST: Ian David Miller, PhD candidate, University of Toronto; meme expert
