Long-form TED level conversations with top thinkers, founders and scientists on how advances in biotech & genomics, space travel, IoT, AI and other exponential tech converge to create our collective future and what we can do, from a research and policy perspective to shape the technology, trends and societal norms for a better world.



If in-depth, unscripted conversations with the researchers, startups and future thinkers transforming our future in a Tim Ferriss meets Sam Harris, Kara Swisher, a16z and Joe Rogan Experience type no-holds-barred interview show is your cup of tea you’ve come to the right place. Some episodes feature Intelligence Squared esque lively debates and Planet Money like in-depth discussions on health and intermittent fasting, automation and unemployment, healthcare, the economy, etc... while others would fit right in with a Kevin Rose or Jason Calacanis casual fireside chat.



We cover EVERYTHING, from artificial intelligence, the ethics, economics and leadership of our coming century, futurism, combatting climate change, fixing blockchain and redesigning democracy and politics from the ground up. Longevity, virtual reality, surveillance capitalism and social media... we got it all.



Past guests including Douglas Rushkoff of Team Human, Isaac Arthur of SFiA, Cory Doctorow, Nikola Danaylov of SingularityFM, Fraser Cain of Astronomy Cast, Aubrey de Grey, presidential advisors, top economists, venture capital investors and more...

Great podcast - incisive, insightful and optimistic!

Naby786 ,

Great guests, incompetent host, annoying listening.

The guests are often 5/5 but the annoying, know-it-all attitude of the host reduces this podcast to a 1/5. You'll find yourself irritated by him debating a topic he clearly knows nothing about with someone who's an expert in the field. He clearly thinks he's A LOT smarter than he actually is and this ignorace shines through in his confidence questioning someone with real expertise. There's a lot of potential with this podcast and I'd continue listening if he stopped adding his two cents in and just stuck to asking questions.

Essential part of my week

Great podcast, really interesting guests talking about a variety of topics relating to technology and society for today and into the future. Matt does a great job steering the interviews and always provides more links at the end if you want to do more research. Highly recommended.
