The “After On” Podcast
Launching Now . . .
I’ve been previewing my new podcast in the “members only” section of Medium for the past three weeks. Its goal is to bring listeners from a passing familiarity of a subject to a top-percentile understanding of it in the course of a single episode featuring a deep interview with a relevant expert.
Each episode is accompanied by an article that contextualizes and introduces it. The first of those articles was made available to Medium non-members and members alike. Its companion audiocast surveys the current state of augmented reality, and features a long interview with the CEO of AR pioneer Meta. While the article has been available to anyone, the audio was initially only available to paying Medium members.
Today, the full podcast has become freely available on the wonderful Boing Boing site. You can find it here. It runs with a second article, which is complimentary to the one we ran here on Medium. There will be a minimum of eight episodes in the series, and they’ll go up on Boing Boing on a weekly basis. Or you could listen to them early as a Medium member (episodes #2, #3, and #4 are already here, here, and here).
The podcasts dive deep into the science, tech, and social issues connected to my new novel, After On. And the odds are decent (and rising) that I’ll continue with the series after the original eight. Should that happen, it will graduate from its light affiliation with the novel, and continue as a series of unhurried conversations with thinkers, scientists and founders. If you like the sound of this, please consider subscribing to the podcast on your smartphone. Instructions are here.
