Why Support Team Human?

It doesn't have to be this way.

Autonomous technologies, runaway markets and weaponized media seem to have overturned civil society, paralyzing our ability to think constructively, connect meaningfully, or act purposefully. It feels as if civilization itself were on the brink, and that we lack the collective willpower and coordination necessary to address issues of vital importance to the very survival of our species.

Team Human is a podcast striving to amplify human connection. Each week we are engaging in real-time, no-holds-barred discussions with people who are hacking the machine to make it more compatible with human life, and helping redefine what it means to stay human in a digital age. Members of Team Human include debt activists  Astra Taylor and Tom GokeyYes-man Andy Bichlbaumco-op organizer Esteban KellyDNA artist Heather Dewey-HagborgFairphone founder Bas Van AbelTony winning playwright JT Rogers, and counterculture pioneer R.U. Sirius and so many more, including, hopefully, you.

Each episode is the product of hours of on-location audio recording, VoIP recording, arrangement, editing and mixing, research, scheduling, web design, photography, feed maintenance, music composition, and inevitably, technical problem solving when devices fail or recordings don’t go as planned. Your subscription to Team Human not only supports the material costs of hosting a weekly podcast (including web hosting, feeds, storage, software, and technology overhead) but more significantly, sustains the hours of human labor that go into producing each show. Listener support also keeps us advertisement free. 

Meanwhile, your subscription not only earns premium gifts, but also grants you access to the TeamHuman Slack channel, where we discuss the issues raised on the show, hold production meetings, and entertain ideas for new guests and features. Joining Team Human means participating as fully and directly as you would like to in the creation of this show, and having a direct channel for feedback and discussion of what we're doing. Whether you’re a long-time listener or just discovering the show for the first time, being a patron is a direct way to keep the Team Human conversation alive!

Goals
$600 – reached! per month
Our first goal is to raise 600.00 per month. Your support will directly help sustain Stephen's work producing, editing, and mixing each show, updating website and managing the technology backend.

Rushkoff will not be taking any of the funds for himself, but will be using them to pay for the people who have been working on TeamHuman, as well as for the travel, technology, server space, and bandwidth required to make the show. So far, the vast majority of these expenses have been paid by Rushkoff out of pocket, but as the show grows bigger, this is getting harder to do.
