Will a Robot Steal YOUR Job?

Automation expert James Kotecki visits NYC and Eric sat down with him for a special expert guest episode of Future is Wow. He says automation won't take your job, but also admits that it's HIS job to say that. Still, seems like pretty good stuff! I'll be fine unless robots learn how to make podcasts. Jokes on you, podbots, this isn't even my job!

Will a Robot Steal YOUR Job?

"Curing Death" with Moujan Zolfaghari

We're talking about the end of The End! Bodily living forever, uploading your brain to a computer, youth juice, whatever you wanna do to never feel the Grim Reaper's icy scythe. But in a fun way! Comedian Moujan Zolfaghari has so much info about how the billionaire class is hoping to crack this, you're gonna learn a lot (mainly, how life is good if you're a billionaire). Special thanks to Julian Breheny for editing this together! THANK YOU! See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

"Curing Death" with Moujan Zolfaghari

Facial Recognition Tech - Becoming Forever-Known

Eric & Brendan talk about "facial recognition tech" and people's backlash against it, including a recent instance of JetBlue surprising a passenger with it. Are fears overblown? Who should have this tech? Governments? Companies? No one? Does opting in make a difference? Plus a game of "Vocal Recognition" that deeply offended Eric.

Facial Recognition Tech - Becoming Forever-Known

Back to the Future Is Wow

So Eric & Brendan have ended their hiatus and are back. This stuff is exciting to us, but apologies for the synching issues on this shorty, hopefully they're not too distracting. But we're back, we're talking about the issues of the day & the future and we're gonna get goofy. See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

Self-Driving Cars with Erin Barker & Justin D'Ambrosio

We're talking about the technology-to-change-culture of all technologies-to-change-culture: self-driving cars. These things are gonna change everything. Erin & Justin bring their expertise and comedy to the table and we get into things. Eric thinks robots should basically just run our lives and everyone else falls somewhere below that. They should just run things though, who's gonna stop them? See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

100% Green Energy with Zara Findlay-Shirras

Is going fully wind/solar/etc possible? Zara lets us know and we also talk about if living off the grid is something you actually want to do. Eric kinda does? Though not in a like a fringe lunatic kind of a way, in a is-that-just-farming kinda way. We also play the dumbest game (so far!) with a very tangential justification for making Home Improvement noises. See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

Colonizing Mars with Sophie Santos

Comedian Sophie Santos sits down and gives her take on whether or not colonizing Mars is worth it. Maybe it's not? I think it is, and frankly am shocked that we even talk about it. But we do! And we nudge humanity sliiiightly forward in colonizing Mars through a pretty visual process for a podcast but hey, that's kinda life, y'know?

The Big Insane Ideas That We're Kinda Figuring Out

We lay out exactly what this is (a dumb silly talk show) and what it's about (the giant ideas that are going to change the world forever).I introduce my co-host Brendan Collins (DadMen) and reveal that even though this is the first episode The Future is Wow is already over a year old because I am a perfectionist.Which, turns out, is a very destructive thing.Both for this podcast and for the future.We also briefly touch on Self-Driving Cars because I can't stop talking about them, even for five minutes! - Eric Cunningham (Broadway Video, MTV) See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
