Future Perfect explores provocative ideas with the potential to radically improve the world. That’s never felt more urgent than it does today. But the truth is that humankind has faced crises throughout our history, leaving behind rich wisdom for us to draw from.
In our new limited series, The Way Through, we’re looking to belief systems, philosophies, and wisdom traditions to help us navigate what we’re living through today. In eight episodes hosted by Vox’s Sean Illing and Sigal Samuel, we’ll talk to thought leaders who can help us see a larger context, and perhaps help us find something meaningful, ennobling, and even fortifying in our common experience. Produced by Vox and the Vox Media Podcast Network.
