4:00 – #39 – Appletopia (original air 9/19) 


Apple is making headlines again with the release of the iPhone 6. Much of the multi-billion dollar company’s success can be attributed to its visionary founder, the late Steve Jobs. In his book Appletopia, media and culture critic
Brett T. Robinson reconstructs Steve Jobs’ imagination for digital innovation in transcendent terms. From Zen Buddhism and Catholicism to dystopian and futurist thought, religion defined and branded Jobs’ design methodology. Robinson resurrects Jobs’ uncanny ability to integrate philosophical and religious thought with technological genius, laying the groundwork for Apple’s ubiquity today. As it turns out, culture was eager to find meaning in the burgeoning technological revolution, naming Jobs as its prophet and Apple’s advertising as its gospel. Brett joins us.
