Upon returning to America, he started various businesses, from real estate development to filmmaking to viticulture. 
    Zoltan’s award winning thriller, "The Transhumanist Wager," describes philosopher Jethro Knights and his unwavering quest for immortality via science and technology. 
    Zoltan also writes futurist and transhumanist-themed blogs for The Huffington Post, Psychology Today, and Vice's Motherboard. 
    Zoltan is the founder of the Transhumanist Party for which he was the 2016 presidential candidate. 
    As part of his campaign, he toured the country in the Immortality Bus, and on this journey he delivered the original Transhumanist Bill of Rights to the US Capitol. In 2018, he was an endorsed Libertarian candidate for California Governor.

    Our Sponsor today is Ra Optics
    Our sponsor for today’s show is one of the two brands of blue light blockers that I actually recommend using. I’ve had the CEO Matt Maruca on the show before and we got into a two-hour long discussion, which I think to this day is the longest episode of the Decoding Superhuman podcast. But his company raw optics has made blue light blockers sexy. And the beauty of their product is that blue light doesn’t get in. If any amount of blue light gets in, that Netflix show you’re watching late at night, that book that you’re reading on your iPad, that email that you’re answering, is disrupting your sleep.
    So where do you get yours?
    Head over to raoptics.com plug in the code Boomer you’ll get 10% off your order.
