Winning Slowly

There are plenty of podcasts that will tell you how the latest tech gadget or “innovation” will affect the tech landscape tomorrow, but there aren’t that many concerned with the potential impact of that tech in a decade—much less a century. In a culture obsessed with now, how can we make choices with a view for tomorrow, next year, and beyond? 25–35-minute episodes released the first and third Wednesdays of the month.


episode 5: 5.05: “Faint Not”

Negative / Invisible / Legal (Organized): civil forfeiture and entrenched legal evil
Show NotesWe take on civil forfeiture. The short version: we hate it. It’s a wicked injustice and we think it ought to be fought, and fought hard. (If you want to hear Chris and Stephen get actually angry about something, this is the episode.)

  • “Civil forfeiture in the United States” – Wikipedia
  • “NYPD admits accounting for its civil-forfeiture seizures is hopeless” – RT
  • “Asset Forfeiture Abuse” – ACLU
  • “Civil Forfeiture” – Last Week Tonight with John Oliver (HBO)
  • “Police Can Use a Legal Gray Area to Rob Anyone of Their Belongings” – Kaveh Waddell, The Atlantic
  • “Faint Not” by Jenny & Tyler – used by permission, and with the deepest gratitude.
  • “Winning Slowly Theme” by Chris Krycho. Not quite as awesome as Jenny & Tyler, but that’s okay.
