PODCAST: The Maintainers and the Innovation Delusion #podcast
In a world that seems obsessed with innovation and novelty, what does
it mean to focus on maintenance and care? This podcast features the
founders of The Maintainers, a global research network interested in
the concepts of maintenance, infrastructure, repair, and the myriad
forms of labor and expertise that sustain our human-built world. They
are also the authors of a new book called "The Innovation Delusion".
