#66 - Hope and Chaos: 2017 Unpacked
In this edition of The Aidan Project, Aidan is joined by cultural anthropologist, Jared Miracle, to review 2017. Taking a thematic approach, Aidan and Jared look at the stories which they believe will retain importance in the coming years. This is not a mere countdown show, but a considered appraisal of what 2017 will come to represent in the future. What will 2017 be remembered for in political circles? What issue of protest or division in 2017 will dominate the history books? And, amongst several stories which are perhaps not conducive to generating a smug sense of satisfaction about human progress, what was the most heartwarming moment of 2017? The year has not lacked in hatred, but what can it offer in hope?
Aidan and Jared have both chosen an option from the following themes:
The Biggest Story
Politics and International Relations
Protest and Division
Science, Technology and the Environment
To all listeners of the podcast, thank you so much for listening this year - have a wonderful 2018.
