Past Futures and Weird Futures, Best of TWT

Slide1[This show first aired April 21 2008. The live program experienced technical difficulties, some of which have been edited out.]

Phil Bowermaster, Stephen Gordon, and Michael Darling discuss weird ideas about the future… both past-futures that turned out to be bizarrely wrong and very strange futures that may turn out to be right.


The topics:

  • General Motors 1939 New York World’s Fair Futurama Exhibit
  • And here’s a video of that exhibit at Youtube.
  • What many often call futurism, is more properly known as Futurology.
  • What’s the difference between a past future and a weird future?
