Your audio magazine curated by Ryan Broderick to help you sail into the weekend. In Future View: is there a bubble on space travel investment? Some analysts think is the early 2000s tech bubble all over again. Then, we look into whether new green projects are enough to dig our way out of the climate crisis. Today's Deep Dives explore the idea of crypto cults and ponder on whether people who claim to have seen UFO's should be taken more seriously. And to end things with, our two Conversation Starters: breaking down ways to tackle vaccine hesitancy, and how the 'Girlboss' trope went from an empowering idea to a sort of shorthand for a fake corporate capitalist feminism. Ryan Broderick is a freelance journalist who has recently been published in outlets such as The Nation, The Verge, Eater, and Foreign Policy. He writes a newsletter about web culture and technology called Garbage Day and hosts a podcast about online platforms called The Content Mines. 00:01:06 - Section 1 - Future View - The Washington Post & Guardian 00:23:31 - Section 2 - Deep Dive, Features - Financial Times & Guardian 01:01:44 - Section 3 - Conversation Starters - Financial Times & The Cut
