If you’ve been listening to season one of Future Rising, you’ll know that most podcast episodes are short and hopefully insightful and engaging readings from the book Future Rising.
This episode is different – it’s a lot longer for a start. As we’re currently in between seasons, I thought I’d post a bonus episode that captures some of the thinking and reasoning behind the book and the podcast.
This episode is based on a TEDx talk that was scheduled to take place in early 2020, but was cancelled due to COVID. It draws on the back-story behind the book Future Rising as it riffs off the idea of thinking about the future as an object. But at its heart it’s about the importance of thinking differently about the future in the increasingly complex and interconnected world we live in.
If you enjoy it, please do check out season one of the podcast, and subscribe on your favorite podcast platform so that you don’t miss season two when it comes out this fall.
