Great entry level science and futurism

If you’re not sure where to start on all the things that will influence tech and society over the next few hundred years this is a good place to start.

Engaging Science and Philosophy

Every week I look forward to listening to this podcast. I get current science news I don't hear anywhere else, and enjoy engaging topics in science and philosophy that are imporant now and vital to the future of civization on this planet. Sean researches well the topics he presents on the show, often bringing on guest experts. Besides that, the original music on the show is awesome! I strongly recommend this podcast for any person who enjoys thinking.
