Welcome to Soonish, a new podcast about the future from technology journalist Wade Roush. How do we think and talk about the future? What can we do to shape it? Why are our best forecasts—and our worst fears—so often wrong? Season 1 starts out with shows asking why the technology predictions in the movie "2001: A Space Odyssey" never came true; why monorails have been neglected as an urban transit option; and whether technology can help museums stay relevant in the digital age.

Thought provoking and fun
The is a great podcast that makes you see the present in a new way by reflecting on the expectations of the past. It raises very interesting questions about where humanity and our country are going. The theme of the first episode frames the challenge of achieving great things as a society at a time when we seem to have lost the collective will to solve big problems. Very thought provoking stuff!
What the future reveals about the present
Great new podcast operates under the premise that our thoughts about the future reveal interesting insights into our present. The first episode revolved around one of the greatest scifi movie of all time: 2001 a Space Odyssey
Smart, engaging, promising
Great productive podcast idea: how and why we predict the future and with what results. First episode really engaging, excellent production values. Looking forward to seeing where this goes.
