Thinking Like A Futurist

September 6, 2021
Amy Webb


This week our guest is renowned futurist, Amy Webb. Amongst her many accomplishments, she is the founder of the Future Today Institute, a professor of strategic insight at the NYU Stern School of Business, and author of numerous books including The Big Nine: How the Tech Titans and Their Thinking Machines Could Warp Humanity and The Signals Are Talking: Why Today’s Fringe Is Tomorrow’s Mainstream.

This is just a small taste of her efforts, but to give you an idea of how significant her influence is, Forbes once listed Amy as one of the 5 women changing the world.

In this episode we take a wide exploration of her work, including how to think like a futurist, how to avoid future-panic, the impact of covid on our technological trajectory, the power of storytelling, China’s influence, the impact of social media, and so much more.

And keep your eyes out for her upcoming book, The Genesis Machine: Our Quest to Rewrite Life in the Age of Synthetic Biology
