This week we talk to one of my all time favourite writers and thinkers Douglas Rushkoff. In this episode we discuss, Obama’s potential to tap into bottom-up politics, what happens if we stop believing in the economy, Conspiracy Cultre, hacking reality, what the next renaissance might look like, writing comics, why advertising doesn’t work and Magick. I really hope you enjoy this special 20th episode of the show. I’m a HUGE fan of Mr Rushkoff making this a very special episode for me!

Joining me in the examiners chair this week is Media-Underground‘s George Mortimer and FINALLY our very own Claire Lumiere!
