Looks Like New: What is a human? With Douglas Rushkoff

This month’s guest is Douglas Rushkoff, one of our most prominent and provocative thinkers on technology and culture.

    Looks Like New: What is a human? With Douglas Rushkoff KGNU News

 

MEDLab’s radio show and podcast, Looks Like New, asks old questions about new tech.

Each month, host Nathan Schneider speaks with someone who works with technology in ways that challenge conventional narratives and dominant power structures. The name comes from the phrase “a philosophy so old that it looks like new,” repeated throughout the works of Peter Maurin, the French agrarian poet and co-founder of the Catholic Worker movement.

You can hear Looks Like New the fourth Thursday of every month at 6 p.m., or online as a podcast on iTunes and Stitcher.
