    Introducing Holy Week

    Introducing Holy Week

    Holy Week: The story of a revolution undone.
    The assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. on April 4, 1968, is often recounted as a conclusion to a powerful era of civil rights in America, but how did this hero’s murder come to be the stitching used to tie together a narrative of victory? The week that followed his killing was one of the most fiery, disruptive, and revolutionary, and is nearly forgotten. Over the course of eight episodes, Holy Week brings forward the stories of the activists who turned heartbreak into action, families scorched by chaos, and politicians who worked to contain the grief. Seven days diverted the course of a social revolution and set the stage for modern clashes over voting rights, redlining, critical race theory, and the role of racial unrest in today’s post–George Floyd reckoning.

    Introducing: The Experiment

    Introducing: The Experiment

    A new podcast from The Atlantic and WNYC Studios, The Experiment, tells stories from our unfinished country. On the first episode, host Julia Longoria tells the story of the “zone of death,” where a legal glitch could short-circuit the Constitution—a place where, technically, you could get away with murder. At a time when we’re surrounded by preventable deaths, we document one journey to avert disaster.

Exploring the effects of new technology

It’s an interesting and engaging podcast. I like how the host explains each episode’s topic and explores the pros and cons of a new technology. It’s never really one-sided, but he does come up with a conclusion in the end. I highly recommend to give this podcast a listen

BRING IT BACK!

As a fellow futurist, podcasts like these are great and informative

TOO MANY SOUND EFFECTS 😡

This podcast used to be pretty interesting. Now is choppy narration with a sound effect for every other thing they say. Extremely distracting, not good for working. If this is their new podcasting mode, you lost a subscriber!
