FODI: The In-Between

FODI: The In-Between is 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 short, creative sound responses to the themes that will be released weekly alongside each conversation.
