Event description
Join Douglas Rushkoff's Team Human Show for a live discussion with Blaed Spence and Jennifer Rauch | Doors 8:00 PM Showtime 8:30 PM.

About this Event

XRAY is proud to present Team Human Live! Autonomous technologies, runaway markets and weaponized media have overturned civil society, paralyzing our ability to think constructively, connect meaningfully, or act purposefully. Being human is a team sport, and Douglas Rushkoff's Team Human Podcast and radio show has been the voice of human intervention in the machine.

Join the party, find the others, throw off the yoke of surveillance and manipulation and celebrate the quirky, anomalous behaviors and approaches that make real people so much more than robots, algorithms, or consumer profiles. This is where the conscious beats the automatic - an opportunity to redesign reality on our own terms.

Live, connected conversations, in real time and space, with real humans.

Hosted by
