At Soonish, tech journalist Wade Roush argues that the future is shaped by technology—but technology is shaped by us. Season 2 features shows on the power of virtual reality to persuade us (and maybe deceive us) and the power of a total solar eclipse to unite us. Season 1 episodes explored what happens when movie directors try to get the future right, but fail; why monorails are a neglected but still promising form of urban transit; how technology can improve the museum-going experience; how entrepreneurs are working to create skilled factory jobs in an age of automation; who's working to develop and market substitutes for meat; why the next phase of space exploration is being led by private companies; why our personal productivity tools always seem to fail us; how we balance the past and the future in urban planning; and how a metaphor from the movie Apollo 13 can help explain the Trump presidency.

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.

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

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!
