Mila Atmos, a global citizen based in New York City, is the producer and series host of Future Hindsight, a weekly podcast that aims to spark civic engagement through in-depth conversations with citizen changemakers. What most informs Mila’s worldview is her belief that American democracy is a living, breathing mechanism whose wellbeing deserves to be cultivated and protected. Mila combines life experiences from living in multiple cultures ranging from Indonesia to Germany to the rural U.S. with her knowledge base in history, economics, and international affairs (B.A. & M.I.A. Columbia University) in creating Future Hindsight.
As a musician, composer, and audio engineer/producer, working with Future Hindsight is a perfect fit for Peter Fedak. Having many years of technical experience, as well as a passion for meaningful podcast programming, Peter is excited to help engage people in new ways of thinking about their place in the world. Living in New York City, he has studied composition and theory at Julliard College, audio engineering at Harvestworks, holds a Bachelor’s of Music from NYU and is currently pursuing a graduate degree there in Music Technology. He still studies jazz guitar and plays standards in a combo on the weekends.
Myriam Zumbühl is a journalist and producer. After 20 years as a host, editor and producer at Swiss National Public Radio and Television she founded her production company Harvest Productions where she finds joy in developing exciting media productions and bringing interesting people and strong stories together for audio, film, books or written stories. A gardener at heart, her latest vision is the re-vitalization of an old botanical garden into a Centre for Resilience & Social Change – a place for a conversation to foster social change. She is based in Zürich, lived, loved, and worked in Amsterdam and London, and can hail a taxi like a real New Yorker.
Brook Sayen is a transplant New Yorker hailing from the snowy mountains of New Hampshire. Brook received a BS in Journalism from Emerson College, and is a graduate of the Putney School in Vermont. When not producing Future Hindsight he can be found reading, exploring New York, or trying to catch mutant fish in the East River.
Melanie Sayarath received a BA in Art History and English from Smith College, where she also served as Director of the college’s radio station. Before joining Future Hindsight, she worked in the arts, holding positions at Pace Gallery and The Museum of Modern Art. In her free time, you can find her wandering around the galleries in Chelsea or hiking in her home state of Vermont.
