I’ve Put My Professional Arc Into A Podcast: Introducing Telekinetic

Many of you readers may still be wondering how I so casually shifted from pontificating about autonomous vehicles to espousing remote work. These and other areas of my experience have much more in common than meets the eye — and in fact, it is that grasp on convergence that usually pays my bills. So, I decided to bring all of it together in a podcast.

Telekinetic tackles how human progress changes human movement, with episodes thus far covering mobility, education, democracy, and labor. Listen to the trailer, or take this teaser out for a spin:

The through line of the pod is to examine humanity’s ongoing quest to master its environment — the creativity and consequences of trying to bring the world to our fingertips, rather than the other way around.

Beyond my professional experience, this pod stems from my pet theory that all intentional human behavior progresses through a spectrum distinguished by three buckets:

  1. Transportation
  2. Communication
  3. Manipulation

I welcome your thoughts on the theory, which you can learn more about in the trailer episode. Like any unscientific theory, it’s not always cleanly defined… but I find it to be reliable. Any behavior less developed than transportation is unintentional response. Anything beyond manipulation is zen. What happens in between — well, that’s humanity’s relentless pursuit of progress, and that’s what we’re here to talk about.

Telekinetic can be found on most major podcast platforms including Spotify, Apple, Google, Amazon, Stitcher, Overcast, iHeartRadio, Castbox, and more.
