Listen to the future

Futures podcasts to inform, entertain and inspire.


More than a motivational thinking exercise, our futures are crafted by the decisions and preparations we make. This site contains podcasts and posts covering a range of futures thinking or strategic foresight stories or deep dives, to help you prepare for your preferred future.


Charlotte Kemp, futurist, author and keynote speaker, hosts podcast interviews with people around the world on similar topics, and then takes that research to demonstrate how we approach our challenges and craft our futures from different perspectives.

Futures Facets

Seen through the lenses of different geography and topic areas, Charlotte Kemp explores critical futures issues or change drivers with people around the world, from her home in Cape Town, South Africa, through Namibia and Kenya, to the United Kingdom, Canada and Singapore.
