Soonish

Soonish is a longform narrative podcast arguing that the future is shaped by technology—but technology is shaped by us.

Host Wade Roush is a veteran journalist with a PhD in the history of technology from MIT. The show's sound-rich excursions feature the innovators whose technologies could change our world, and the citizens and consumers who'll decide whether and how to adopt them.

Meet rocket scientists building next-generation ion engines, biologists growing artificial meat, and architects designing the cities of the future—and think along with Wade as he ponders what it all means.
