Mike Hill & Jamais Cascio

Should we be worried about surveillance technology? Is Big Brother really watching us?

How will we define privacy in the future?

These are the questions Californian-based author and futurist Jamais Cascio will have you contemplating.

Mike met Jamais back in March 2018 (time flies) at the Institute for the Future in Silicon Valley, where Jamais works as a research fellow.

Jamais was selected by Foreign Policy magazine as one of the top 100 Global Thinkers, has written four books, including Hacking the Earth: Understanding the Consequences of Geoengineering, and has spoken on everything from emerging technologies to environmental dilemmas.

His ideas for building a more resilient society have been published in the Atlantic Monthly, the Wall Street Journal and Metropolis among others.

While Jamais predicts the future will get worse before it gets better, he is ultimately an optimist.

So, what could the future of society look like? And how might we steer towards the futures we want?

In this hopeful conversation, James and Mike discuss everything from the Y2K myth to inspiring comic books.
