Night White Skies is a program about our futures as both earth’s environments and our human bodies are now open for design. Night White Skies is both a podcast and serial video series. 

As a podcast, the program engages a diverse range of perspectives to get a better picture of the events currently unfolding. This includes conversations with philosophers, cultural anthropologists, policy makers, scientists and science fiction authors. Each individual’s work intersects this core topic, but from unique angles.

As a video series, the program demonstrates a design world living with the glitches, snags, and unintended consequences of our environmental and technological ambitions including the spatial, social and aesthetic consequences. 

Both the video series as well as the podcast tackle the same topics but through different perspectives.
