Episode 7: “Less Stuff” and the shift to an access-based economy

We’re shifting from an ownership econcomy to an access based economy. As more and more media moves into the “cloud”, as devices like smartphones take over the roles of more and more discreet devices, and as on demand 3D printer looms on the horizon, Stan & Jason ponder discuss how we’re at the beginning of an era of “less stuff”. How might this shift away from physical goods affect the environment? An upgrade based economy? Our identities? JOBS?

**Note** Apologies for Jason’s robot voice in the last few minutes of the episode. The gremlins in his headset seem to get upset after they’ve been recording his voice too long **
