167: Memo to the People of the Future

Sep 8, 2000
Stories of people who are engaged in something that's both difficult and probably futile: Trying to control how they'll be seen by generations to come.
  • Host Ira Glass tells the story of a time capsule project designed to document our lives so that people a thousand years from now can know what we were like. Ira explains that when a friend of his got involved in the time capsule, Ira realized that he hates the people of the future. But lots of people don't. Lots of people worry about how they'll be remembered. This show is about that sad, sad lot. (4 minutes) HistoryScience
