Welcome to Season 2, Episode 9 of the Exponential Minds Podcast. Nikolas Badminton, Futurist, Keynote Speaker and Author, speaks to the amazing thinkers that dream bigger and impact the world with their thinking and actions.
Here Nikolas speaks with Monika Bielskyte, a futurist with an artist's eye and an inventor’s mind. Monika consults on and prototypes culturally diverse, socially and environmentally engaged future world designs for the media industry, technology companies, and government. She’s also an expert in the immersive media space (XR/AI/UX) and edutainment, and her work consists in connecting bleeding edge technological innovation with some of the world's most original creative visions that explores the relationship between speculative science fiction narratives and the unfolding of global futures.
Here are the references Monika mentions:

- Ed Yong at The Atlantic - ‘Why is the pandemic so confusing?’
- 'Sand Talk: How Indigenous Thinking Can Save the World 'by Tyson Yunkaporta
