Underfutures is a podcast from Changeist created to dive into trends, dynamics and emerging scenarios that we think are interesting, underplayed, and under-examined in contemporary discussions about futures.


Episode 2: Coming Attractions

Episode 2: Coming Attractions

TV and film award season is upon us, and the chatter around science fiction and films and TV depicting near and far futures has never been more intense. If you’re into these topics, or more generally utopia and dystopia in Western pop culture, Underfutures has you covered.

Episode 2 is now live, and features an expanded panel, including Madeline AshbySusan Cox-Smith, special guest Joanne McNeil, and Scott Smith. In this episode, we discuss some notable films and TV shows from 2018, a few throwbacks (see below) and how they both reflect and shape our current states of mind about the future.

You will have your own views. We’d expect that. Share them and please share the episode.

Below are links of interest and clips, based on our discussion in this episode.
