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 3: 4.03: The Podcast Awakens

We say a few serious things about the nature of global fandom, the relationship between art and brand awareness in large media properties, and the future of as large a property as Star Wars.
But let’s be honest: mostly, we geek out.

  • Literature Forum, where Chris was Master_Keralys
  • “How Disney Plans To Sell ‘Star Wars’ In China, A Box Office Far, Far Away”
  • “‘Star Wars’ China Box Office: Lukewarm Presales Could Signal Trouble For Disney Juggernaut”
  • The Force Awakens soundtrack on iTunes
  • “Main Title” from Star Wars, by John Williams. Fair use. And amazing.
  • “Winning Slowly Theme” by Chris Krycho, who started composing in no small part because of the “Twin Suns” cue from A New Hope, which rocked his world when he was just a little kid, and nothing was ever the same.
