Because The Future Comes Fast

    Supreme Anger / Future Forward #421

    Supreme Anger / Future Forward #421

    So let’s start with one thing, this is a podcast and we feel no requirement to be objective. Which is why we can say, without equivification that we think the Supreme Court’s decision overturning roe vs wade is horrific and indefensible. How did it happen, how does it seem so many people are both overwhelmed by and tuned out of the news? Today a Reuters survey may have some clues.
    SR: And Facebook effectively pulling out of the newest business may be part of the equation. I’m Laura Fitton and this is future forward. I’m Steven Rosenbaum let’s launch.

    January 6th and Fox News

    January 6th and Fox News

    On Thursday, a piece of media history was made. The January 6th Committee held it’s first live, prime team hearing. It was a careful, thoughtful, unfolding of the events of the day. What was done, and what wasn’t done. And, much like the opening of a complex trial - it had just one objective. To convict Donald Trump of knowingly urgent mobs to the capital, and then in conjunction with the proud boys and oath keepers -to set them to attack the seat of US government. Today, we’ll unpack the first of six hearings, and why Fox News choose not to cover what was clearly a news event. I’m Laura Fitton, and this is Future Forward. I’m Steven Rosenbaum, Let’s Launch

Interesting tech talk for non techies

Alexa and Steve break things down to a level that even people with the most neanderthal-esque understanding of tech will understand. Lots of insights on how tech impacts everything.

Loose on details and bad audio quality

I love the quality of IEEE Spectrum articles but this podcast is the opposite of that: two hosts casually chatting about things that are sometimes wrong and misinformed. One episode was a political rant. I rate my podcasts on how much I have to listen through noise to get quality and the one finally got me to unsubscribe because the inaccuracies and ranting overshadow the nuggets of value. I cut the guests slack on the audio quality but I suspect the hosts are just using a computer microphone which sounds bad.
