Episode Info:

Playing for Team Human today is Eli Pariser, author of The Filter Bubble, former director of MoveOn.org and current chief executive of Upworthy.com.

Eli uses media to make what’s important popular, rather than the other way around. Upworthy.com is a story-driven website focused on magnifying meaningful conversations that encourage positive social change. On today’s episode, Eli and Douglas mine our reality tunnels, looking at how perspective shapes meaning and what strategies we might employ to ground democracy in greater consciousness and empathy. 

On the theme of reality, Douglas opens with the viral craze over the “Yanni/Laurel” audio clip. Can we really say that everything is just a matter how you hear it?

The first NYC Team Human Live event at the Alchemist’s Kitchen is on Thursday, June 21st. Limited tickets are available, Free to Patrons. Get your tickets here or check the homepage at Teamhuman.fm for details.
