Future is Now Favoriting : Playlist from April 12, 2024

Hosted by:



FUTURE IS NOW is a podcast series exploring intersections between art and social change, produced by Z Gallery’s Shahrzad Arshadi and Caroline Künzle. The title comes from a song by German punk rock singer Nina Hagen. She sings: “1968 is over, it’s over, … Future Is Now! It’s really gonna be a better world.” Her lyrics express our feeling that change for a better world is happening right now, through the work of many. In each episode, we will tell you these stories of change: stories of artists and art projects that inspire us. As you listen, we hope they will inspire you too.

Future is Now broadcasts on CKUT on the second Friday of every month at 2pm. You can also listen to all the episodes here

Every 2nd Friday of the month, 2 - 3pm (EDT)

Favoriting April 12, 2024: The Future We Imagine + Making Contact Radio: The Origins of Zionism

This episode’s focus is on our Hopes and Dreams. What is the future we are wishing to live or wishing to leave behind for our children and grandchildren and the generations after us.

For that different people record their voices in order to share their hopes and dreams with us. A beautiful collage!


Making Contact: The Origins of Zionism

For the last 6 months, the world has been witness to a humanitarian crisis in Gaza. Outsized, and unprecedented attacks on the people of Gaza, and support from western countries for these Israeli attacks have led to a situation where Gaza is being referred to as the world’s largest open-air prison.

In this episode with Gaza-based reporter Rami Almeghari, we talk to Rashid Khalidi about his book “The Hundred Years’ War on Palestine” in order to learn more about the very early history of the zionist movement in Palestine and his argument that it was, from the start, a settler-colonial endeavor.

Featuring: Rami Almeghari – Palestinian reporter from Gaza, Rashid Khalidi – Historian and Edward Said Professor of Modern Arab Studies at Columbia University https://www.radioproject.org/2024/04/the-origins-of-zionism/
