Douglas Rushkoff’s Team Human Show with Yin Mei Critchell
December 1, 2020, at 7:00 pm
Autonomous technologies, runaway markets and weaponized media have overturned civil society, paralyzing our ability to think constructively, connect meaningfully, or act purposefully. Being human is a team sport, and Douglas Rushkoff’s Team Human Podcast and radio show has been the voice of human intervention in the machine.
Join the party, find the others, throw off the yoke of surveillance and manipulation and celebrate the quirky, anomalous behaviors and approaches that make real people so much more than robots, algorithms, or consumer profiles. This is where the conscious beats the automatic – an opportunity to redesign reality on our own terms.
