Dreaming Different with Jezz Chung
Episode One Available May 2
We are happy to announce the launch of “Dreaming Different,“ a new podcast that explores world-building guided by the question: How can we design the future through a neurodivergent lens?
Hosted by Jezz Chung, this six-episode series includes conversations with organizers, artists, cultural philosophers, and scientists to explore how a better understanding of neurodiversity—including the language and experiences of it—can help us create cultures that are more inclusive, equitable, accessible, creative, and connected. We hope that through imagination and conversation, this podcast helps you think, and ultimately dream, a little differently.
Episode One drops on Tuesday, May 2. Listen to it on our website or anywhere you get your podcasts (Spotify | Apple Podcast | Google | Stitcher | Amazon Music). Follow us on @deemjournal to be notified when each new episode comes out.
