Imagining the future with Weapons of Reason magazine
We delivered Weapons of Reason to Stack subscribers in March 2019, and in this episode of the podcast the publisher Danny Miller, editor James Cartwright and creative director Paul Willoughby speak about their aims with the magazine. Each issue focuses on a major global challenge, like the environment, population growth or demographic shift, and aims to bring some sense to these big, complex, difficult subjects by zooming in on a specific part of the wider challenge.
Their latest issue is dedicated to technology, and they chose the rise of artificial intelligence as the area they wanted to explore, looking at the past, present and potential future of a technology that is affecting the way we all live our lives. In this conversation the team speak about the reasons why they wanted to tackle such difficult and important subjects, how they use a simple illustrative style to communicate complex ideas, and where they are planning to take Weapons of Reason next.
Of course if you’re a Stack subscriber you’ll already have seen this one for yourself, but if you haven’t joined our independent magazine club yet you can pick up a copy of this issue in the Stack shop. And of course you should definitely sign up to join Stack and receive our surprise magazine deliveries every month – the only thing you know for sure is that our next magazine will be completely different to the last one…
