THE FUTURE WILL NOT BE PODCAST is an unscripted, unedited conversation about Future Shock — the idea that technology is accelerating so quickly that human minds, laws, and societies can't keep up, and why that is a fundamentally new problem for our generation, and our children.
It's hosted by 3 guys who have covered technology and media for a decade: Matt Silverman, Evan Engel, and Alex Fitzpatrick.

The ramifications for the journalism and entertainment industries are huge, but more importantly: Is it even possible to achieve digital literacy in the era of "Fake News?"
