This Anthro Life
A show about the little things we do as people that shape the course of humanity
Life is complicated, but we love simple answers. AI and robotics are changing the nature of work. Emojis change the way we write. Fossil Fuels were once the engine of progress, now we're in a race to change how we power the planet. We're constantly trying to save ourselves...from ourselves. This Anthro Life brings you smart conversations with humanity’s top makers and minds to make sense of it all. We dig into truth and hope in our creative potential through design, culture, and technology. Change your perspective. Crafted + Hosted by Dr. Adam Gamwell. From Missing Link Studios in Boston, MA..
We’re anthropologists on a mission, inspired by Anthropologist Ruth Benedict’s claim that anthropology’s job is to make the world safe for human differences. More than ever, anthropology matters because ecological and political crises that affect the world force us to recognize on an individual scale that there is no ‘outside’ from which we can just sit back and observe. Rising nationalism, resource shortages, rights abuses and migration are realities that characterize the daily lives of many around the globe. We podcast to reveal the social processes and systemic violence behind those issues and give listeners positive tools to better engage and thrive in today’s world.
