What happens when you arm strategic actors with big data and predictive analytical power? Juan Pablo and Jason are pleased to present Pan-Optic's collaboration with the Our Foundations podcast, further reflecting on some of the challenges (and solutions) posed by strategic communications throughout Western history. As part of this collaboration, we explore: the rise and fall of the bourgeois public sphere; shifting powers of corporate and government institutions in post-9/11 America; modern private military contractors, Silicone Valley tech corporations, and technology consultants; and practical strategic applications of technology and their effects today. Pan-Optic and Our Foundations present different, sometimes competing political views of the world. Our differences made for a truly fascinating conversation that listeners of both podcasts will appreciate and hopefully learn from. Please join us for part one of our first podcast crossover experiment. (And let us know what you think!)
