About a month ago, we published the very first episode of Teleport’s brand new podcast - Free People Move. It received a very warm welcome and we had a lot of great feedback, so - here’s part two! Sten and Silver recorded this episode in true Teleport style - Sten being in Palo Alto, California, and Silver joining the discussion from the Galápagos Islands.
Episode two is all about Good Luck Being Born Tomorrow - Silver’s slightly controversial blog post about the chances you would have of a great life if you were born tomorrow. This post is the most widely read story from Teleport to date - if you haven’t read it yet, you can see part 1 here, part 2 here or read a consolidated post on Medium.
The guys take another look at the post, talk about how the idea came around, why this topic is important to begin with and discuss key points from the blog. What are the chances, really, and why is it important to provide transparency on state services, taxes and everything else? Why is critical thinking important when it comes to your location? What is the Tiebout hypothesis and how can you vote with your feet? What can you do if you’re not happy with your environment? All of this discussed in Free People Move part 2!
For those of you who have requested the podcast on iTunes as well - we’re working on it and will let you know when it’s been approved!
