Underfutures is a podcast from Changeist created to dive into trends, dynamics and emerging scenarios that we think are interesting, underplayed, and under-examined in contemporary discussions about futures. We’ll call them underfutures because we like new words. Talk back to us here, or @underfutures on Twitter.
Scott Smith and Madeline Ashby recap the missing months since the last episode of Underfutures, discuss two live shows at me Convention; Scott interviews urbanist Anthony Townsend, author of the upcoming GHOST ROAD on the future of mobility.

We’re back with Episode 3 of Underfutures, this time talking about the changing nature of working, time, place and how people fit into these. Fresh off a multicountry collaboration. Madeline and I are joined by John Willshire of Smithery and Artefact Cards to talk about these themes, and pay homage to the patron saint of nomadic co-workers, Jason Bourne.
