Excellent thought-provoking talks, but...

Love to listen to thoughts by the irredeemable Warren Ellis, no one quite has a perspective like that.

However, and no offense to the fine actor who narrates, but why couldn't this just be recordings of Warren himself speaking instead of rereading transcriptions?

By the time you are finished it all makes sense!

By the time you are finished it all makes sense! I've already adopted the phrase "like some bleak Circus" into my own vocabulary.

I Would Leave A Headline, But I Gotta Go And Learn

Well performed, curious, and inspired. Basically, it's not a guide to figuring out the future, but more a guide to setting up to build the future. Also, it has plenty of Ellis' trademark wit.
