Cory Doctorow: An Encore
In a special encore presentation, we're delighted to highlight our conversation with Cory Doctorow, originally published in October 2020. Stay tuned for a new season of The Gould Standard as we bring you even more thought-provoking conversations. Has technology ushered in a Brave New World of creativity, connectedness and individual empowerment— or has it created an invisible tool to enable surveillance, manipulation and the invasion of our privacy? Few people alive speak more clearly and provocatively to these issues than Cory Doctorow, award-winning science fiction writer, blogger and activist for a more open, accountable and human-rights-focused digital future. In this in-depth conversation with host Brian Levine, Cory explores the deep social engagement, sense of wonder, and occasionally, the rage that inspires his fiction and non-fiction writing.
