with
Cory Doctorow

description

This week my guest is science fiction author and activist, Cory Doctorow, who has such an extensive and prolific background that I’ll let him describe it to you at the top of the podcast. But I will say that whether you agree with him or not, Cory has an incredible clarity of insight that brings together a very wide variety of topics, and luckily he also has the ability to articulate those thoughts.

In this episode, we explore science fiction's impact on the world, how we balance the cost of technological solutions and progress, the failures of blockchain, peak indifference, gig economies, climate change, digital IDs, and so much more.

You can read more about Cory's work at his website (https://craphound.com/) or follow him on Twitter at https://twitter.com/doctorow
