S2E002 - NeoHuman

ESPECIAL GUESTS: Rob Miller and Douglisio DiMuccio (NEO). Series 2 is here!

From genetics to robotics, longevity to AI, this change is going to affect everyone... and NEO is a sneak peek at what's happening now.

Episode 316 - Tax Cheats

EOffshore tax havens. They’ve been in the news a bit lately, especially in relation to one of our otherwise favorite companies, Apple. So this episode we tackle the topic of offshore tax havens, the double Irish whatever it’s called, and what’s fair. There’s a bit of contentious disagreement, mid-ep, for those that like controversy too. Things get a little heated, but all in the service of thinking through some very complicated ideas… Recorded 10/18/2016. Show notes available at https://robotoverlordz.fm/show/436-ep00316-notes.

Episode 313 - Internet Attacks!

EThere’s a threat to the entire Internet lurking in the devices you may have in your home. Hackers are using networks of exploited and hacked Internet Of Things (IOT) devices (cameras, thermostats, lights, etc.) to direct overwhelming attacks at sites and services on the Internet. While this may not seem like a threat to you personally, it actually endangers everyone that uses the Internet (and even those who don’t). Join us and find out more about this threat.

Episode 310 - #SystemsHealth

SPECIAL GUEST: Michele Battle-Fisher. Health, and how we develop, treat, and enhance it, is something that affects all of us. Policies are frequently developed by those in power with little regard for those that have to live under those policies. From the water issues in Flint, Michigan, to the “soda tax” proposed by a variety of cities, these policies can have a wide variety of receptions and results. In this episode, we’re joined by systems thinker Michele Battle-Fisher to take a look at how the complex web of variables interacts to promote (or discourage) health outcomes. Recorded 9/25/2016.
