| S:1 E:8

Can we ensure a bright future? Is holding true to our beliefs in a world of technological and social "progress" really possible? Don’t miss the exciting conclusion of Big Audacious Idea.

In this episode, we will sum it all up. During the season we’ve delved into mind-spinning topics of technology, reality, and consciousness… All of these topics relate to how we as humans solve problems, generate ideas and transform our world. Advances through history have caused certain revolutions of thought: technological, social, or otherwise. How do we know when we’re at one of these points in history? How does the new become old—and how do we promote the next revolution? This is where we’ll go with Lev Gonick, CIO at Arizona State University, who is an educator, technologist, and smart city architect.
