Look Both Ways: A podcast by Kin + Carta

  • 10 August 2021

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?

First up: Nikola Tesla’s dreams of powering the planet for free, the remarkable story of Wardenclyffe Tower, and a question: Are we dreaming big enough about how we transform our current energy system? 

With the help of AltaRock Energy’s Geoffrey Garrison, we then unpack the case for geothermal energy as an often overlooked answer to that question. Listen to Episode 1 and subscribe today on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, and Google Podcasts!

Also be sure to follow Look Both Ways on Instagram for additional content and behind the scenes looks into the show.
