Looks Like New is the show that asks old questions about new technology. Each month, we speak with someone who works with technology in ways that challenge conventional narratives and dominant power structures.

The name comes from the phrase “a philosophy so old that it looks like new,” repeated throughout the works of Peter Maurin, the French-American agrarian poet.

Looks Like New is produced by the Media Economies Design Lab at the University of Colorado Boulder, a research community that experiments with democratic ownership and governance in the online economy. MEDLab is directed by Nathan Schneider.

Listen to Looks Like New the fourth Thursday of every month on KGNU radio at 6 p.m., or online as a podcast. Subscribe here:
