    Episode Description:

    We spend a lot of time thinking about the future and planning for the future. Fifty years ago, people at the 1964 World’s Fair built their vision of the future. They imagined a world of jet-packs, steel, glass, and Formica. And they committed to it in a park in New York City. Today on the show, we visit that park and visit the future as seen from the World’s Fair in 1964. And we see how the future actually turned out.
