Welcome to 1984 Today!

A podcast about all things dystopian, hosted by writer and filmmaker Mike Freedman.

In the words of Yogi Berra, “the future ain’t what it used to be.”

1984 Today! explores the dystopian trends in our weird and worrisome world with a raised eyebrow and a grain of salt in hand.

Our guests are writers, filmmakers, inventors, professors, technologists, and members of the public, all of whom in some way can tell us something interesting and enlightening about where society is headed.
