Your audio magazine curated by Ryan Broderick to help you sail into the weekend. We’ve got a really full show for you this week. We start with Future View where we look at the social shifts we’re seeing in the workplace and we ask what people really want from a job, other than an income. After that, we’ve got a piece about the surge in space exploration in recent years and we’re giving you the three big takeaways from the recent UN 2021 outer space security conference. We move on to a feature about the encyclopedia of Luddism, which offers a tale about what might have happened if the Luddites had won their battle against alienating technology. We end with two Conversation Starters: the first is an interview with the latest UK creative talent to be lured to Hollywood, Phoebe Waller-Bridge. Then to finish, we explore how behavioral economics is strikingly similar to Freud’s thinking on the dual nature of mental processes. 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. 00:01:18 - Section 1 - Future View - The Financial Times & MIT Technology Review 00:13:44 - Section 2 - Deep Dive, Features - The MIT Press Reader 00:39:16 - Section 3 - Conversation Starters - The Financial Times & Psyche Magazine
