Inspiring Futures is a podcast about the future hosted by Ed Cotton. We live in the now, everything around us is increasingly real-time, so we are somewhat challenged to think about the future because it’s an unknown and takes discipline to think about. But what happens when we do we think about the future, when do we think about it, who inspires the futures we think about and what do we think the future will hold? Inspiring Futures is a podcast that talks to people from diverse backgrounds, careers and industries and talks to them about how they think and what they think about the future.
