Soonish is a journalistic podcast made in the high-tech hub of Boston. It asks what the world of tomorrow will look like, and how we can each make it our own. Because 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 narratives feature the innovators and creators whose ideas 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, architects designing the cities of the future, and scientists using advanced neural interfaces to peer into our thoughts—and think along with Wade as he ponders what it all means.
