Team Human


Frank Brodhead

Ep. 180

Author and lifelong community and climate activist Frank Brodhead helps us transform our rage and despair into hope and action. Why is environmentally-friendly policy never the focal point of political leadership? “I think so much of local politics has to do with maintaining the resale value of people’s main asset, that’s their home. The last thing that responsible political leadership is to maintain a stable climate.” Frank says. Even in the face of despair, Frank provides reason for us to keep playing for Team Human.

In his monologue, Rushkoff explores why film and television needs to embrace the human soul. “You can’t get to those questions with the best film technology alone. You need also to be able to embrace that weird extra special something about the human soul.” and recalls a discussion with Richard Dawkins and Naomi Wolf about moralism.
