Team Human: Two New Episodes, Meetup and Medium

Don’t miss the most recent episodes of Team Human!

On Episode 109, Douglas hosted Jason Schmitt. Jason looks at the big business of for-profit academic publishing in his new documentary Paywall:The Business of Scholarship. Should the the world’s research be locked behind closed doors? Jason makes the case for open access on today’s Team Human.

This week on Episode 110, Douglas hosts Susan Basterfield and Anthony Cabraal from Enspiral.

Susan Basterfield and Anthony Cabraal. Susan and Anthony share the open secrets of bottom-up collaboration as we celebrate the publication of Enspiral’s book, Better Work Together. It’s a conversation about the power of working together, building on ideas “good enough to try,” and creating a space where it’s “safe to fail.” Looking for collaborative and participatory ways to create social change? Enspiral has collected and opened up its learnings for all to replicate.

Douglas opens with a monologue about moving beyond “master plan” interventions. What does democracy look like on a human scale?
