The Light Ahead: Stories for a Beloved Economy
Naomi co-created and is Executive Producing and showrunning a scripted fictional podcast that explores the question "What would 2030 look like if the USA had an economy that truly worked and cared for everyone?"
In the way that Star Trek inspired a generation of scientists, investors, and techies to grow up and create technologies that seemed impossible only decades ago, The Light Ahead offers listeners visionary ideas for a kinder, more inclusive, economic future.
Each episode is a short piece of scripted fiction set in 2030 and informed by the visions of activists and justice activists.
The series is now available wherever you get your podcasts.
