Playing for Team Human today is Natalie Foster. Foster brings a unique determination and optimism to questions surrounding the future of work. Her research as a fellow of the Aspen Institute Future of Work Initiative and as an affiliate at the Institute for the Future focuses on rebuilding the social contract for the changing landscape of labor in the 21st century. On today's episode, Foster and Douglas Rushkoff discuss worker protections, cooperative ownership, precarious labor, and the future of jobs in an increasingly automated digital economy.
