Can we escape our own irrationality? Is weaponized DNA something we should be worrying about? Does the future look like "Mad Max"?
This week on Big Think's podcast, we're joined by the astounding Alex Goldman and PJ Vogt, creators and hosts of "Reply All," (one of our very favorite podcasts, EVER) and the astonishing Matt Farley writes us a theme song in under an hour.
Interview clips from futurist Steven Kotler, psychologist Dan Ariely and actor/activist George Takei get us talking (and laughing) about all kinds of unexpected things, and result in the aforementioned song.
We chop it up with Daveed Diggs, the Oakland actor and rapper who currently stars as Thomas Jefferson and Lafayette in Hamilton. Plus, Stacy's Career Corner will help you get through making a mistake at work.
