This week:

Artist, writer, and self-described experimental philosopher Jonathon Keats talks about his new book, You Belong to the Universe: Buckminster Fuller and the Future. In the book,  Jonathon examines some of Fuller’s most well known inventions,  like the Dymaxion Car, as well as some obscure ones, like Two-Way TV, to explore how Bucky’s ideas and approach to the world might be put to use in the 21st century.
