  • 5 Easy Ways To Protect Your Privacy Online

    What do your internet browser, the company you just bought shoes from, and the search engine you used to find last night’s dinner recipe all have in common?

  • The Racist Myth of Outside Agitators

    This week, we’re checking facts on the podcast. We can all agree the truth is what keeps democracy alive, but sometimes ascertaining what it is poses difficulties. To better understand our political system’s relationship with the truth, and how professional fact-checking works, we turned to Jon Z. Greenberg. He’s a Senior Correspondent at PolitiFact—one of...

  • It’s Time To End Cash Bail

    The last two weeks of protests are another demonstration of Future Hindsight’s core message: being civically engaged can change the status quo.
