[ONLINE] - Timeout. Do We Need to Rethink Our Relationship with Sports?


We can’t meet up together in person these days, but we at Future Tense believe that connecting with each other to consider how technology and science can disrupt and enhance our lives is more vital than ever. We hope you'll join us every Tuesday and Thursday for our Social Distancing Socials. You can join these interactive conversations via Zoom, from the comfort of your home with your favorite beverage in hand.

Join us Thursday, April 30 for less than an hour at 4:00 pm EDT to discuss how we can use this pause in play to reimagine our relationship with sports:
