In February 2022, FODI released a bold new podcast FODI: The In-Between, an audio time capsule recording this moment in time. It asks: Are we in-between two eras? And if so what does this mean about the past and the future? Eight conversations between 16 of the world’s biggest thinkers. Woven through the podcast, as B-Side episodes, is an ‘album’ of 8 short, creative sound responses to the themes that will be released weekly alongside each conversation. With guest speakers including Stephen Fry, Roxane Gay, Peter Singer, Waleed Aly, Sam Mostyn, Slavoj Žižek, Naomi Klein and more, The In-between tackles the big issues of our world and future, from climate change and global politics to artificial intelligence, truth and social media.

Yes! Where possible we release sessions from the Festival in audio format.
A selection of video conversations and video highlights of past festivals are on our The Festival of Dangerous Ideas YouTube channel.

FODI is a curated festival and does not accept submissions. However, we are always happy to hear suggestions and ask for callouts on our social media channels several times throughout the year.
FODI is presented by The Ethics Centre, an independent non-profit. The Ethics Centre and FODI are funded by donations, membership fees, grants, ticket sales and consulting fees. We’re not in anyone’s pocket and are independent.
FODI: The In-Between is made possible by these generous Supporters and Donors.
So much of what we’ve achieved has been the product of positive partnerships with like-minded organisations – the University of NSW, Sydney Opera House and so many more. We would love to chat about how we can work with you, let’s start the conversation.
