About The Show

In the midst of some of the world's most intense religious, political and cultural conflicts, there are individuals who've managed to forge connections between opposing sides. It isn’t always easy. The personal costs can be enormous and the odds of success are far from certain, but for some, accepting things as they are just isn't an option. Through our Crossing the Divide series, Freethink explores timely, familiar conflicts and debates from the vantage point of people pioneering new ways to connect with people on opposing sides of the conflict.

About The Show

But unbeknownst to many, a new era of private space exploration has already begun... and it’s firing on all cylinders. The New Space Race is the story of a 21st-century revolution.

About The Show

Want to see into the future? We’d all like to, and experts do their best to forecast what’s to come. But, still, even they can get it wrong...like, really wrong. From “the population bomb” to the Y2K scare, GOOD presents Wrong – a Freethink original series about the bad predictions made by some of our brightest minds throughout history. Some of the predictions might look outlandish now, but at the time they actually seemed quite plausible. And that’s the point: the world is complex and the future, well, it loves to surprise you...

About The Show

Join us as we go to the front lines of a revolution that is erupting all around the globe today, transforming whole societies in its wake. This revolution isn’t being fought with guns on a battlefield or with signs at a rally. It isn't a struggle to replace old governments with new ones. This revolution is different. This is the remarkable true story of how ordinary people armed with nothing more than satellite dishes, flash drives, blue jeans, lipstick and tattoos are fighting back against their oppressors and winning. This is Pop Revolution.
