Late Mode is a podcast in search of the ‘zeitgeist’.
Critically engaging with the idea of 21st century ‘zeitgeist’, we embark on a journey across others’ lived experiences. In an effort to answer the question: what is now to others? LateMode asks its speakers to share with their audience the way they conceive of themselves and the experience of being human today.
The idea that a single spirit of the age can be apt to describe a particular period of history is by now obsolete. As far as our understanding of reality goes, nonlinearity has become the keyword. Within a present characterized by the extreme fragmentation of time and lived experience, should we instead speak of multiple zeitgeists? Or rather just ditch the concept?
In an effort to sit with this complexity, we decided to ask for help from a small percentage of other humans. Reaching out to people who personally touched us in our daily life, we ask our guests about their hobbies, interests, practices and guiding philosophies. What do they think is important, relevant, or politically urgent at this very moment? And how do they conceive of this particular speck of time in the first place?

Considering the many contradictions carried by this notion, we embark on a journey across others’ lived experiences of present life.
