The future is shaped by technology, but technology is shaped by us.
Soonish is my monthly-ish narrative nonfiction podcast about the force that makes the present feel different from the past, and that will make the future feel different from the present—namely, technology. It’s also about the big and small choices we all make that steer technology in the directions we want (and, sometimes, don’t want). Soonish is one of the founding shows at Hub & Spoke, a growing collective of smart, idea-driven, independent podcasts.
The podcast that helps business leaders make sense of new technologies coming out of the lab and into the marketplace.
I’m the producer for this ongoing show from MIT Technology Review, hosted by the magazine’s CEO Elizabeth Bramson-Boudreau. The show has featured interviews with business leaders and innovators such as Microsoft founder Bill Gates, former Yahoo! CEO Marissa Mayer, and former IBM vice president Sophie Vandebroek.
The world’s leading innovators, entrepreneurs, and investors share their insights on what’s next in technology and the life sciences, and why their companies’ products and ideas will rule the world.
I hosted and produced this three-episode series of interviews for Xconomy, the authoritative online network for news about the high-tech economy. Guests included and former Microsoft chief technology officer Nathan Myhrvold, display pioneer and hardware designer Mary Lou Jepsen, and cybersecurity expert Christopher Ahlberg.
