Joe Mahoney is working on the CBC radio summer replacement show Next, hosted by Nora Young. Beginning July 2, it will air Fridays at 9:30 a.m. on CBC Radio One, and will be repeated at 6:30 p.m. Sunday (half an hour later in Newfoundland, of course). It runs through September 5.
Next has a definite SFnal angle: it's a look at where the culture is headed, through technology, trends, and Big Ideas. It will track emergent technology and culture not for their own sakes, but to explore their effect on our psyche and on our ommunity, recognizing that the "next big thing" might not be a thing at all, but an idea, trend, or revolution. Through Next, listeners will meet the scientists, artists, and designers shaping and commenting on our future.
