future-shock-title-feature Retrofuturist Flashback: ‘Future Shock’ (1972 Film)

In this week’s podcast episodes about Alvin Toffler’s 1970 book “Future Shock” we also discuss the 1972 documentary version quite a bit. It’s more sensational and hyperbolic than the book by far, but it’s also fantastic retrofuturist fun. Narrated by
