In the second part of our bumper 2-part utopianism and the pastoral deep dive, we explore Jon Bois’ internet masterpiece 17776: What Football Will Look Like in the Future. What does a long-form multimedia piece about the distant future of football and humanity teach us about nature and better worlds? We consider the magic of being in an audience; communal and individual play; surplus, self-sufficiency, simplicity, and choice. Also don’t miss us making it extremely clear that we will never, ever monetise this podcast.
