Episode #5: Chuck Klosterman
We had the chance to speak with New York Times best-selling author Chuck Klosterman when he stopped by Rotman as part of our Shiftdisturbers speaker series. Klosterman is known for his keen sports and pop culture observations as well as his stint as the Ethicist for New York Times Magazine. He’s a super smart guy who brings his a unique worldview to almost any topic. But we were specifically talking about his new book, But What If We’re Wrong: Thinking About the Present as if it Were the Past, in which he tries to grapple with humanity's assumptions about what we think we know, and what that unquestioning certainty could mean for us in the future.
Music in this episode: "Steppin'" by Wake; "The Last Ones" by Jahzzar.
