About Us

Technology is overhauling society before our very eyes! Does that trend scare you, excite you, or something in between? Well, same here. We, Zach Foust and John Mundahl, are exploring how the world is changing around us and where those changes might take us. We'll peek into the future. We'll consider the interaction with our communities. We'll reflect back on life today. Through this podcast and online community (companion newsletter at WeAreHereTomorrow.com), please bring your perspective to help everybody understand our current and future worlds!

Latest Episodes

When Robots Tutor Humans

Society is partially defined by our education systems (1:45). We explore tutoring as a premier education method (7:50) and how technology is trying to mimic it (16:45, 20:30, 32:00). We attempt to project the future of technology-based tutors (43:15, 55:20) and how it might impact students (1:04:00) and teachers (1:06:10) and society (1:11:10).

Gone Fission

Many people (present company included) view nuclear energy as a enigmatic, dangerous relic from the past. But is it really? Like a 76 year old Keith Richards, can nuclear fission make one more farewell tour to go out on top? Come listen, and join in on the discussion after!

George Floyd and Racial Justice

Rather than listen to Zach and John, we want you to take the normal 60-90 minutes for our episodes and instead listen to the black voices and experiences in our country and act to help overcome these deep problems! We ask that you try to understand more about white privilege, about our nation’s racist history, and how it shapes our society today.

Catching Cancer Clues with Liquid Biopsy

Technology frequently frames our world’s biggest problems as also the greatest opportunities. To consider how technology will change our world, we must look at these trying, complex problems. Cancer is no exception. John and Zach explore the new world of *Liquid Biopsy* for cancer. This episode covers some cancer basics (4:20), the history that brought us liquid biopsies (16:30), what liquid biopsies can do today (31:05) and tomorrow (33:48), and the revolutions it might cause in cancer care (35:55, 49:55, 52:10, 1:02:10) and more! --------- Join the conversation via our interactive email newsletter!

Catching Cancer Clues with Liquid Biopsy

AR You Seeing What I'm Seeing?

How often does sci-fi and pop culture shape our tech future? If there's any causation there, then we should have Augmented Reality glasses balanced on our noses in no time! Think Terminator-vision, Tony Stark's glasses, and just about all of Season 3 of Westworld. Today, Zach and John take a look at this technology to try and determine just how much of it is fictitious. Consequently, then we ponder: how long we think it'll take for AR to truly become a real thing?

Racing to Save Gasoline Engines

John knows nothing about cars. But then he gets addicted to Formula 1 car racing. Zach has studied engine mechanics a bit, so he swoops in to rescue the day. John and Zach find themselves researching a “dying” technology: internal combustion engines. But as they find out, the all-electric vehicle future is further out than expected because Formula 1 is pushing out some surprising innovations.

The Economics of Low Earth Orbit

This week on the pod, Zach and John talk about the commercialization of the nearest part of the Final Frontier: Low Earth Orbit! First, off, we discuss how we get there, and just how deep your pockets need to be to pay for a trip. Really, is it even worth it? Since John and I weren't asked to comment (for some reason) NASA instead consulted investment and aerospace firms alike to ponder that question. And finally, once we get to LEO, what kinds of dangers to we need to look out for?

Janitors and Principals of Social Media

Zach and John spend ~50% of their “social” time online (100% of the time during COVID-19 lockdown ). We simply want to post, chat, and video-message freely while avoiding unsavory content from others! Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube (among others) try to balance all of our interests through rules enforced by “Content Moderation” that can remove content and users as necessary. But content moderation has a seriously dark underbelly. The human employee and user costs are severe. And social media companies hope technology can save the day. John and Zach explore the current and emerging state of content moderation. Can social media companies boost moderation sufficiently before users or governments reclaim the powers?

Preventing Chronic Disease? Breakdown or Break Barriers

Final episode in our three-part miniseries on chronic disease prevention. John and Zach take off the rose-colored lenses. For widespread adoption and support of chronic disease technology, our world may need some serious changes. The health system is shortsighted. Fancy algorithms are sometimes hilariously bad. And we don't trust the magic machines. But payoff should expand far beyond chronic diseases - if we ever get there...

Preventing Chronic Disease? What Algorithms Can Do 4 U

In Episode 2 of our 3 part miniseries on Preventing Chronic Disease, Zach and John dive into the blossoming world of medical diagnosis with machine learning. We explore two research papers to get a better perspective of where this science is today, and what we hope it goes tomorrow! If you love technically questionable analogies, you have come to the right podcast. Let’s go!
