Remake is a podcast about Design, Systems, and Society. And I'm Eran Dror, a product designer and researcher of eastern religions. In each episode I interview someone who’s trying to change our lives for the better in some meaningful way, whether through a new product, new venture, or new way of looking at the world, and I try to understand how they came to it, what makes them tick, and what we all can learn from them.

I truly believe Design is strategic, that it goes to the core, that it's at the root of what it means to be human. In this show we explore an expansive view of design, and cover Systems Thinking, AI Ethics and Safety, Social Innovation, Secular spirituality, and the future.

A conversation that feels like reading the Sunday Times and listening to a favorite audio book

Eran’s conversations are a beautiful, unrushed luxury in a world that is on speed. What I love about the podcast is how it combines the humanities and humanism at the nexus of design. Each episode is luxurious- in how slow cooked and carefully woven it is.
