In a world full of bold predictions about what will work in the future, it’s easy to forget the other side of success.
That’s why we’re thrilled to announce the Look Both Ways podcast. Hosted by our own Scott Hermes, Look Both Ways is a celebration of experimentation, world-changing ideas, and the willingness to get things wrong.
Told through immersive stories and novel perspectives, we’re setting out to see what history’s unsung failures still have to teach us. For example:
Could Bitcoin suffer the same fate as one man’s attempt to redefine currency 200 years ago? What can Ben Franklin’s failed attempt to change the American English alphabet teach us about using technology to preserve endangered languages?
