If this truly is the greatest period of transformation in human history, what does that mean to each of us?
How will our lives be different?
What should we each be doing to prepare?
Phil and Stephen discuss the three major drivers of change we all need to be aware of and the one change that is crucial to making the future happen
Let the journey begin. Today is the day.
The digital age has fundamentally transformed humanity's relationship with information. Through the advent of personal computer, Internet, smart phone, and social media technology, we have access to knowledge, to transactions, and to interpersonal communication that far transcends what was possible a few decades ago. The digitization of information has radically transformed almost every aspect of society -- from education to careers, from entertainment to personal relationships, rom child
The future is on its way. What will it be like? Hosts Phil Bowermaster and Stephen Gordon debate some pivotal questions about what may unfold in the years to come.
Resolved: The discovery of extraterrestrial life is inevitable, as is the discovery of extraterrestrial intelligence. Resolved: Newly discovered oil reserves will go largely untapped; the future belongs to alternative sources of energy. Resolved: Within a decade, bitcoin -- or something like it -- will be one of the world's leading currencies. Resolved: Humanity's fate is summarized in the title of R. Buckminster Fuller's book: Utopia or Oblivion. One or the other is inevitable. (WT011)

The World Transformed 2, Part 1
Some of it is evolutionary, some of it is cultural, and a small portion of it is original to us as individuals. It is our way of thinking. Our thinking is always subject to scrutiny and inspection, but perhaps never more urgently than now. If profound change truly is upon us… …what assumptions must we avoid? …what new ideas must we be ready to embrace? …what cherished “truths” must we be prepared to put away once and for all? Our panel will explore the role that education, imagination, and creativity have to play in coming to grips with a world in a state of transformation. Our Panelists David Brin P.J. Manney Thomas McCabe

Plus -- an update on the World's Longest Book!
Futurist Ray Kurzweil is on the record predicting that humanity will move forward 20,000 years in the 21st century. Just to provide a little context, 20,000 years ago we were living in a different epoch. At that time we were 12,000 years shy of agriculture and the earliest vestiges of civilization.
We've come a long way since then. Is it really possible that we might cover the same distance in the next century? And if so, what will our lives and our world be like 20,000 (that is to say, 87) years from now?
Tune in and explore.
