Andrew Maynard is our first ever return guest, as he calls in to chat about his upcoming book Future Rising: A Journey from the Past to the Edge of Tomorrow.
Dr. Maynard, who is a professor in the School for the Future of Innovation in Society at ASU, provides a highly original perspective on our relationship with the future. Humanity has gained the ability not only to imagine the future, but to design and engineer it. And yet, we so often struggle to come to terms with what this means and the responsibility that comes with this ability.
How do we build this future responsibly? How do we learn from the past? How do we give everyone a voice in the conversation? Will we ever get a working lightsaber? This are just a few of the questions we cover.
