Ep. 163
Playing for Team Human, complexity theorist, host of the Jim Rutt Podcast series, and former chairman the Santa Fe Institute, Jim Rutt.Rutt shares his idea for a new civilization-era operating system. Why does the the United States' outdated operating system call for a radical change to a more equitable and humane landscape? "If the glue that holds Game A together is competition for status through material possessions and positional goods. The status around GameB will be conviviality."

Nora Bateson "The Changemaker's Trap"

Ep. 162
Playing for Team Human today, filmmaker, writer, educator, and systems thinker, Nora Bateson.Bateson and Rushkoff interrogate our moment of global crisis to challenge the very systems that drive human behavior and thought.

"There's something about this possibility of recognizing living complexity in ourselves and each other that becomes this untold possibility," Bateson says.In his opening monologue, Rushkoff discusses why Team Human’s greatest strength is not in a specific physical space, but in the form of deeply honest, human engagement.— Support Us —Team Human is made possible thanks to the generous support of our listeners on Patreon.On Patreon:http://patreon.com/teamhumanBecome a Contributing Subscriber:TeamHuman.fmReview the show on Apple Podcasts!— Follow Team Human Show —Twitter:http://twitter.com/teamhumanshowInstagram:http://instagram.com/teamhumanshowMedium:http://medium.com/teamhuman#TeamHumanShow #FindTheOthers— Follow Douglas Rushkoff —Twitter:http://twitter.com/rushkoffMedium:https://medium.com/@rushkoffInstagram:http://instagram.com/douglasrushkoffFacebook:https://facebook.com/rushkoff/LinkedIn:https://www.linkedin.com/in/rushkoff/— Credits —Hosted byDouglas RushkoffProduced byJosh ChapdelaineAudio Edited & Mixed byLuke Robert MasonOur community manager is Michael Bass.Music by Fugazi (On this Episode you heard “Foreman’s Dog” in the intro – thanks to the kindness of the band and Dischord Records.)Special thanks to Stephen Bartolomei.Team Human is a Production of the Laboratory for Digital Humanism at Queens College.
