About This Show
You've come to a place where we look ahead, not entangled in the daily back and forth of the headlines.
What will our society look like in 20 years? How vastly different are the forces at play which really drive us forward?
Where we work....how we live....the way we run our businesses and even how we approach death...it's all fair game.
We will take you just beyond the horizon. And in an age of exponential change, the way we are is not the way we will be.
Curious minds only please.

RAMPAGE: THE SOCIAL ROOTS OF SCHOOL SHOOTINGS
1 day ago
I was doing a talk radio program in Waterbury, Connecticut, one of Connecticut’s larger cities and less than 20 miles from Newtown when the Sandy Hook Massacre occurred in December, 2012. Being on the air as the reports came in, our news director and I wanted to get information to our audience, but at the same time had a hard time believing the horrifying fragments that were emerging. Caution was our watchword. Once we left the air in the early afternoon that Friday, I knew that our greater responsibility would be in interpreting these incomprehensible facts of Monday. I spent the weekend looking for people I could trust to bring some dispassionate context to it all. I saw Katharine Newman, a respected sociologist and author of ‘Rampage’ on one of the cable news networks, and knew she could do just that. Fortunately, she agreed to appear on the program with me. In the context of Parkland and so many other school shootings since Newtown, I feel the empirical basis for her book can still to this day inform our understanding of this tragic American phenomenon. See here it is.
