The Future Will Not Be Podcast
Tfwnbap logo final full 20logo

THE FUTURE WILL NOT BE PODCAST is an unscripted 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.

Our logo is designed by Emily Caufield. Our theme music is "Yesterday" by Otis McDonald (CC/YouTube Audio Library).
