“So the need of society for something like technology, information technology, is clearly there, but is it balanced by the requirement of what society actually requires?”

In this episode, Steve speaks with a guest whose focus includes human culture, behavior, and storytelling: singer/songwriter and activist Sir Bob Geldof, lead singer of the Boomtown Rats and founding member of ​Band Aid, famous for raising money for Ethiopian famine relief.​

Steve and Sir Bob discuss the effect of the Covid19 pandemic on creativity, the political turmoil facilitated by rapidly advancing digital technology, Sir Bob’s hope for fresh ideas, the courage to embrace change, and more.
