    Paul Krassner "When Fake Was Fun"

    Paul Krassner "When Fake Was Fun"

    Playing for Team Human today radical activist, counter-cultural icon, and founder of The Realist magazine, Paul Krassner (1932-2019).
    Krassner and Rushkoff explore how the combination of fabricated news, scandals and outrage - otherwise known as mind f*****g - were once the tools employed by anarchic activists. They discuss how a one-time violin prodigy became the pioneer of the US underground press, and how being an optimist might be our best defence against the challenging times we face. 
    In his opening monologue, Rushkoff shares how we might make the internet a more human-friendly domain through a simple response to the net’s original sin: algorithmic customization.

    Eric Gullichsen "Navigating A Shared Space"

    Eric Gullichsen "Navigating A Shared Space"

    Playing for Team Human today, founder and principal investigator at Pataphysics Research & virtual reality pioneer, Eric Gullichsen.
    Gullichsen and Rushkoff look back at how early virtual reality headsets brought them together nearly 25 years ago. Together, they discuss Timothy Leary's commentary and influence on Gullichsen's work in virtual reality and how Leary still influences Guillichsen's work today with Transcranial Ultrasound Neuromodulation. Here, Gullichsen explains his views on treatments created from organic sources versus synthetic ones and how new brain treatments can be administered in a non-invasive fashion. How can innovations serve our humanity instead of serving it up to Silicon Valley?
    In his opening monologue, Rushkoff discusses how popular public discourse about the Internet is ten-to-twenty years behind what's happening today. He looks at how digital technology has created an environment that has stripped us of our ability to find common ground because we're increasingly living in different worlds.

    Yancey Strickler "A More Generous World"

    Yancey Strickler "A More Generous World"

    Playing for Team Human today, Cofounder of Kickstarter & The Creative Independent and author of the newly published book, “This Could Be Our Future: A Manifesto for a More Generous World,” Yancey Strickler.
    Strickler joins Team Human to discuss his vision for building a society that looks beyond money and toward optimizing for humans. What are ways we can protect our human weaknesses? How can we appropriately scale a business to fit the needs of humans instead of growth for growth's sake? Further, he discusses his concept of Bentoism, a model created based on the belief, "...that our self-interest isn’t solely defined by what we want and need right now. Our self-interest extends to the considerations of our future selves, the people who rely on us, and the next generation." He discusses how this model can help humans discover what it's like to be self-coherent and situate themselves as both individuals and as a collective.
    "This Could Be Out Future: A Manifesto for a More Generous World" is now available: https://www.penguinrandomhouse.com/books/591594/this-could-be-our-future-by-yancey-strickler/
