You've come to a place where we look ahead, not entangled in the daily back and forth of the headlines.
What will our society look like in 20 years? How vastly different are the forces at play which really drive us forward?
Where we work....how we live....the way we run our businesses and even how we approach death...it's all fair game.
We will take you just beyond the horizon. And in an age of exponential change, the way we are is not the way we will be.
Curious minds only please.

https://liberalarts.oregonstate.edu/spp/sociology/brett-c-burkhardt  Private prisons have been a controversial topic over the recent years, but some thought that they had been all but set aside as an option for incarceration at the end of the Obama Administration.  However, the Trump Administration didn’t feel as unkindly toward them and the talk of their demise has been exaggerated.  It’s a resilient industry and looking for new ways to survive in a period when both parties are looking for ways to limit the use of prisons for many offenses as part of criminal justice reform.  In this podcast, Brett Burkhardt, Ph.D, a sociology professor at Oregon State University joins us to discuss the key elements of the debate over prison privatization: cost, quality and morality.  To cut to the chase, is a profit driven enterprise truly interested in rehabilitation when logic would dictate that recidivism is the way to greater profitability?  And if the administration of punishment, meted out by public institutions, isn’t the purview of a public agency of correction, what is?  We explore these points and more in this podcast.
