The World as You'll Know It

A Podcast About the Forces Shaping Our Future

We are living through years of enormous change, when the time between cause and effect is ever shrinking. We can’t predict the future, but we can get a better handle on what’s happening right now, and how these disruptions may shape the years to come.

In the first season of The World as You’ll Know It we looked at how Covid-19 might shape the future. In Season Two, host Kurt Andersen explored today’s technologies and their potential impact on what is to come.

Season Three explores some of the astounding advancements in brain science that are changing our understanding of how the brain works, what it's capable of and how it can be changed. Host Judith Warner speaks to five world-class brain scientists about how their research is making possible the kinds of things that, just a few years ago, might have seemed like science fiction.

The World as You’ll Know It is brought to you by Aventine, a non-profit research institute creating and sharing work that explores how today’s decisions could affect the future. The views expressed are those of the participants and do not represent those of Aventine, its employees or affiliates.
