About Michael Garfield

I'm Michael Garfield, an artist and scholar here to help you navigate and integrate the accelerating weirdness of our times. With everything we do, we leave trace fossils of our activity in the built environment — and it's transformative to be more mindful of what we might communicate across deep time by doing so. Future Fossils Podcast is a hub for this collective contemplation: soulful conversations with philosophers and science fiction authors, visionary scientists and artists all helping tell the stories — and build the systems — that we need to thrive, knitting continuity while weaving novelty to get us through the big transitions.

Your support empowers and enables not just the podcast but "an ecodelic avalanche" of artmusicwritingscicommonline fora, and much else. I've been working in more media than I can count for longer than I can believe, have more ideas than I have time to act on them, and cherish every little bit of help I get to dedicate myself more fully to that work. Thank you for your patronage and your participation!

As for your fellow patrons: I'm grateful for the chance to steward such a rad community of people who like midwifing new myths, braiding disciplines, and juggling perspectives. Join us in the jazz of evolutionary transformation and let's improvise together, finding new collective ways to make sense of extraordinary change!

"The truth is that cultivating a thousand true fans is time consuming, sometimes nerve racking, and not for everyone. Done well (and why not do it well?) it can become another full-time job. At best it will be a consuming and challenging part-time task that requires ongoing skills."
– Kevin Kelly, "1,000 True Fans"
(Kevin appears on FF eps 128 & 165)
