Team Human: New Episodes and Live Show!
Did you catch last week’s Team Human conversation with author, occcult scholar, and wizard Jason Louv?
Jason helps us to see how the intentions we bring into the world of artificial intelligence could set something in motion from which it is hard to return. Jason’s latest book John Dee and the Empire of Angels: Enochian Magick and the Occult Roots of Empire digs deep into the untold and often ignored occult history of Western thinking and empire. On today’s show Jason and Douglas bridge the gap from the Elizabethan esoteric imaginary to the modern day alchemical thinking driving our technologies.
Plus a new Rushkoff monologue: Blockchain can transactionalize our every action. Is that the future we want? All human activity put on the books?
And previously, Douglas talked with Juho Makkonen of Sharetribe. Juho offers real sharing economy solutions beyond the typical extractive “sharing” models that have come to dominate the tech economy landscape.
Episode 86 opens with a thought provoking monologue. Do we need a new myth? Or should we just crash mythology itself?

Autonomous technologies, runaway markets and weaponized media seem to have overturned civil society, paralyzing our ability to think constructively, connect meaningfully, or act purposefully. Being human is a team sport, and Douglas Rushkoff’s Team Human Podcast has been the voice of human intervention in the machine.
Join the party, find the others, throw off the yoke of surveillance and manipulation and celebrate the quirky, anomalous behaviors and approaches that make real people so much more than robots, algorithms, or consumer profiles. This is where the conscious beats the automatic – an opportunity to redesign reality on our own terms.
Come find out what, if anything, makes people different than machines, and how we can fight back against the stultifying effects of digital capitalism run amok.
This evening of conversation will focus on the non-generic quality of time, the way each week of the lunar cycle favors a particular neurotransmitter, and how to leverage this knowledge for better productivity, emotional stability, and social harmony. Come experience, live, how time is not generic.
This is the first New York Team Human event and has been produced in partnership with Evolver and Alchemist’s Kitchen.
