Always now and yet again
About This Show
“It’s like Black Mirror, but a podcast”.
If you are tired of the one-sided melancholy of hygge-filled tech life, here is your recipe for a disaster. In “Always now and yet again” our hosts Felix and Aleksey (and a bunch of invited guests) explore the underbelly, the machinery, the debauchery, love and frazzled hopes that technology, design and culture create, destroy and fascinate us with.
A cultural movement to explore the shadow side, reflections on the millennial experience, in thrall to the weird, repulsive and slightly wrong that tech creates. With beard scratching, heated discussions and high heels.
Here as a podcast. Even more ever under construction at www.seattlemelancholy.com.

Episode 1. Twelfth Year Futures
To predict futures after Simpsons is barbaric. That’s why we could barely hold it when we heard Ten Year Futures by Ben Evans. So yes, most under-informed and over-opinionated podcast of 2018 returns for its first episode. And we are ready for the challenge. 12 years futures! A full decade! All for the price of 10! Take that Silicon Valley.
AI! VR! Autonomous driving! Machine learning! And most importantly - New Sincerity. New Dynamics. New Language. And may be even the End of Self.
If you are still into technology, culture and making sense of it all - join us as Felix and Aleksey generalize our world, unearth biases and slide into the mystique, and the sublime. And no, Aleksey is not recording this in the toilet. He just got new AirPods. And well, you get what you get.
