CGD Podcast Episode 21: The “Classics” Problem

cgdplogo_superwide What does it mean when something is a "classic"? I think there's actually a huge problem here that needs to be explored. New work is created using new cultural and scientific understandings, and it's universally better in almost every case. We need to understand and appreciate this fact, and stop glorifying things just because they're old. In this episode, you'll also hear me talk about classic games like Go and Chess, as well as talk about a better distinction between art and entertainment. Enjoy, and let me know what you think below.
