Here's the Tower - What Will Life Be Like In the Future?

What Will Life Be Like In the Future?

Episode 81

Today we’re talking with some wide-eyed children from the 1950s who have a lot of questions about life in the future. They want to know if there will be flying cars and home computers in the year 2000. Let’s find out.

Guest voices: I would love to credit the kids who appear in this episode because their performances are fantastic, but for their protection, they should remain anonymous. In case there is any doubt, I should make it clear that they are voice actors who performed remotely, were recorded by their parents and worked from scripts that contained only their own lines. I went to great lengths to protect them from this hilarious nonsense.

Music: “Gaiety in the Golden Age” by Aaron Kenny

Associate producer: Betsy McClimans
