Future Hindsight to Bring Independent, Unaffiliated Perspective to Voters During 2024 Election Cycle
Award-winning civic engagement podcast Future Hindsight and host Mila Atmos kick off this upcoming critical election year with brand new episodes starting January 4th, 2024. They focus on taking big ideas about civic life and democracy and transforming them into actionable ways for listeners to be strategic political players.
Based on the premise that democracy is not a spectator sport, Atmos and her team embark on a series of hard-hitting conversations with some of America’s foremost civic thinkers and progressive minds. Each episode of Future Hindsight is carefully crafted to provide listeners with tangible ways to fulfill their civic responsibilities and protect our democratic institutions during the 2024 election cycle.
Beyond its commitment to civic engagement, Future Hindsight is proud to create completely independent, unaffiliated, and compelling content in a world of big media influence. This independence gives Atmos and her guests a platform to unpack progressive democratic ideas totally free of corporate agendas and spoon-fed talking points.

“The upcoming election will undoubtedly be one of the most important and fraught in our lifetime,” Atmos said. “At the same time, the media landscape has changed dramatically and it can be incredibly difficult for everyday citizen voters to get a fair, unbiased assessment of the issues at stake. I’ve never been more proud or excited to offer my listeners an unaffiliated perspective to the unique challenges our country faces in 2024 — one that is sorely lacking in most media discourse today.”
Through wide-ranging conversations with policy experts and citizen changemakers, Atmos deftly blends her signature messages of hope and pragmatic action to give listeners the tools they need to make informed decisions in an age of unrelenting corporate interest, fake news, and manufactured division.
To help listeners understand the unique challenges America faces as it heads towards November, Atmos is joined by a series of preeminent thinkers, democratic action-takers, and progressive legislators including:
- Lala Wu of Sister District for a conversation on the ongoing importance of winning state legislatures – even in a federal election year.
- Deb Otis of FairVote, for a look inside the nonpartisan organization advancing voting reforms to make democracy more functional and representative for every American.
- Danielle Allen, Director of the Allen Lab for Democracy at Harvard, on her latest book, Justice by Means of Democracy, in which she articulates a bold and urgent new political philosophy: power-sharing liberalism.
- Grace Lee, New York State Assembly Member for District 65, for a conversation on how her activism as a parent progressed into public service, as well as the broad range of the vitally important but often unsung work of state Assembly members for their constituents.
- Marietje Schaake at Stanford’s Cyber Policy Center for an in-depth discussion on the intersection of democracy and AI in 2024.
- Ryan Busse, a Democratic candidate for Governor of Montana, former firearms industry executive, staunch advocate for gun safety legislation, and author of Gunfight: My Battle Against the Industry that Radicalized America,
