Episode 11: Progressive Dreams with André Dao

He lawyers. He writes. He’s deputy editor of the New Philosopher magazineand is one of the pioneers of Behind the Wire… and he’s just had a baby! André Dao works tirelessly to document lived experiences of refugees and asylum seekers in Australia’s harsh detention system. His group Behind the Wire has just released a podcast (The Messenger), a book (They Cannot Take the Sky)and curated an exhibition at Australia’s Immigration Museum. Caspar sits down with the formidable Dao, a millennial to take note of. The two talk about André’s insightful piece ‘Who owns the future? Techno dreams and progressive cynicism’ published in the Griffith Review 56: Millennials Strike Back. In it, André writes about the constraints of coal-face progressive policy workers versus the hack-tastic attitude of the modern techno-dreamer. Can we solve the world’s problems with an app? Do millennial progressives need to dream big before they lose the future? And what can we all learn from Milton Friedman? Caspar and André binge big dreams and their hurdles. This episode was edited and produced by Nina Roxburgh and features music by Big Gigantic.
