13. "Reply All" Hosts PJ & Alex – Future Crime/Personal Yoda/Bonus Track

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.
