Audrey Tang: I would like you to firmly resist your weakness

Audrey is a poetician and Taiwan’s first Digital Minister. She sees herself as a digital migrant, having moved into the internet when she was 12 years old. The early makers of digital democracy in the 21st century, she says, are like the makers of reflecting telescopes in the 17th century. They are building digital spaces that are transparent like glass and reflective like mirrors, helping us blend our individual feelings into shared reflections - the practice of democracy.  Audio is licensed under Creative Commons CC0 licence.  Made by Jo Barratt.

Om Podcasten

For millennia, across cultures and continents, we have looked to the stars to navigate when we are lost. Celestial bodies have exerted a magnetic pull over our lives and imaginations. In this era of transformation, in which everything is in flux, we are locked onto old stars that are pulling us in a perilous direction. We need to discover new stars, new possibilities, and reset our course. New Constellations exists to help people imagine and create a future in which humanity and the planet can flourish together; to find and illuminate new constellations of hope and possibility towards which we can orient our lives. We invite you to meet and journey with some of the many pioneering people and communities whose thinking, work and practice shines light on the way ahead. Join us and learn more at
