Grey Mirror is a podcast from MIT Media Lab’s Digital Currency Initiative on technology, society, and ethics. In today’s episode, I interview Marshall Ganz, an internationally known political organizer, a Senior Lecturer at Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government, and the co-founder of the Leading Change Network. We chat about how his background in Germany led him into organizing, how technology has weakened our organizing capacity, and how crypto’s economic scope keeps it from solving other values.
