Oh, hello there. It’s been a while, hasn’t it? I know Flash Forward has been pretty quiet this year, but that doesn’t mean we haven’t been working on things. In fact, next week, we’re going to drop a big project called Welcome to Vanguard Estates. It’s a fiction project, that is formatted as a choose your own path story with 14 different endings. So you’ll get a bunch of opportunities to actually pick what happens in the story.
The piece is about aging, and tech, and surveillance, and parents, and all that complicated, stressful, emotionally dense stuff. Here’s a teaser:
Next week you’re going to get the whole story all at once, next week. So this is your warning, when you suddenly see 30 new episodes of Flash Forward all at once, that’s what that is.
After that (starting November 7th) we’re going to do some follow up episodes where we talk to experts about the real stuff that inspired the story. We’ll cover everything from the neuroscience of aging, to research misconduct in Alzheimer’s treatment, to robots that can put your clothes on, to the (dire) economics of care, to whether we should have nursing homes at all.
I’m really excited for you all to finally hear this series!
