The 15 Best Podcasts for Diving into Nerd Culture


7. Tomorrow with Joshua Topolsky

This post was selected for inclusion in our Future of Art and Work series in December 2016. The series, sponsored by Microsoft Surface, selects some of our best posts exploring the topics of how art and work will look in the 21st century. This post was originally published in April, 2016. 


Former Bloomberg editorial director and technology critic Joshua Topolsky complains loudly and concerns himself with matters of digital culture, technology, entertainment and media. Topolsky tends to illicit a mix of expert insight and cross-discipline discussions from guests like Ex Machina director Alex Garland, Google VP Matia Duarte and comedian Sara Schaefer. As someone who writes (and occasionally reads) things on the internet, I’m especially partial to episodes where he digs into the state of digital media with editors like Buzzfeed News’ Shani Hilton and The Awl’s Sylvia Killingsworth. In general, Tomorrow consistently offers smart, nerdy conversations.
