Welcome to The 2023 Podcast

It is spring of 2023, humankind overcame and stopped the corona epidemic in 2021. After curfews, travel restrictions, social distancing, sickness and death of loved ones, friends, acquaintances and personalities of contemporary history the world returned to normal.

What will our life look like in in spring 2023 – after Corona? What innovations will the virus bring to the world and our very own everyday life? How are we dealing with the shock, suddenly having realized how vulnerable we are, that our personal freedom – after lockdowns and socialization bans – is not always guaranteed, that food and disinfectants can be rare and out of stock.

In this podcast, the host Agnes Kunkel will discuss with her guests from various backgrounds  the different  outcomes of the corona pandemic for our future in politics, economy, urban planning, our private and everyday life, health systems, culture, digitization, mass surveillance and privacy.
