We also play the final part of our discussion with designer and anthropologist Michael Palmyre, who is a part of the design initiative How Might We Do Good. This section of the discussion covers science, social media, the limitations of “green” capitalism, and individual versus structural solutions to inequality. This discussion is elaborating on points from Mike’s talk ‘Are We Using Design to Make the World a Less Valuable Place?’ which we played on episode 196 and also discussed further on episode 197.
