Join us for a special live taping of the show, with special guest Naomi Klein celebrating the release of host Douglas Rushkoff's new manifesto, Team Human.
There is an anti-human agenda embedded in our markets and technologies, which has turned them from means of human connection into ones of isolation and repression. Our corporations and the culture they create glorify individualism at the expense of cooperation, threatening the sustainability not just of our economy but our species. On the Team Human podcast, Rushkoff and his guests reveal this agenda at work and invite us to remake society toward human ends rather than the end of humans.
