Modern Technology Knows Your Name

Rob Firefly Vincent is fascinated by names, and what leads so many people to set aside the name they were given and choose a new one.

From screennames, handles, and casual nicknames to full legal name-changes, this podcast is a deep dive into the social phenomenon of self-naming, and the diverse personal journeys of those who've chosen their own names in some fashion; why they chose to make the change, how they decided what to call themselves, and what their self-applied name means to them.
