Episode Info:

Many Americans think about the future with trepidation. Broadly speaking, our culture lacks a hopeful view of the future — one in which human ingenuity continues to make our lives better. So today I’m speaking with Ed Finn to discuss his work: pursuing better, more optimistic understandings of the future.

Ed is the founding director of the Center for Science and the Imagination at Arizona State University where he is an associate professor in the School for the Future of Innovation in Society and the School of Arts, Media, and Engineering. He is the co-editor of many books, including Future Tense Fiction and Hieroglyph: Stories and Visions for a Better Future.
