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 3: Humans in the Room

Episode 3: Humans in the Room

After one false start (mystery audio gap in middle of initial session) we’re back with Episode 3 of Underfutures, this time talking about the changing nature of working, time, place and how people fit into these. Fresh off a multicountry collaboration. Madeline and I are joined by John Willshire of Smithery and Artefact Cards to talk about these themes, and pay homage to the patron saint of nomadic co-workers, Jason Bourne.

Listen to the end for a special offer (good til April 30, 2019).
