What can we expect of next week, next year, next century? What will we eat, drive, wear, live in, vote for, want to buy, and want to avoid? What mistakes of the past will we make again, and which ones have we learned from? From the next tick of the clock to the ultimate end of the universe, every subject will be fair game. Composed of interviews and essays--and hosted by the science fiction author, Stephen Euin Cobb--this series of programs will explore the future. Guests will include: Authors, Scientists, Celebrities and Pioneers; as well as those witnessing the growing trends of the future, often because those trends are changing their lives today. This program is not about magic, or prophecy, or psychic divination. Instead, we will attempt to use verifiable facts as our foundation, and from them extrapolate forward. All such extrapolations--regardless of the credentials of those putting them forth--must be considered pure opinion. Time alone, will allow these extrapolations to be verified or nullified. Topics and themes we will explore include: nanotechnology and biotechnology; organlegging, molecular manufacturing and computers wired directly into the human brain; extropianism, transhumanism and the technology of individual immortality; globalization, global warming and nuclear proliferation; cryonics and cryogenics; genetic engineering and the human genome project; embryos, cloning and stem cell research; astronomy and other space explorations (NASA, Hubble, exoplanets, SETI, ESA, CCCP); robots, robotics and artificial intelligence (AI); remote sensing and waldoes; legal and illegal uses of the internet; solar cells, peak oil and alternative energy; aging and medical longevity; FTL (faster than light travel, as in Star Trek and Star Wars) and worm holes (as in StarGate SG-1); progress in health, education and neuroscience, as well as evolution, agriculture and inventions; and how what was once science fiction is now biology, chemistry and physics. Everything from futurism to futurology. To learn more, check the show's website at: www.TheFutureAndYou.com

Interview program. I interview one ordinary person a week and ask them some of the tough questions about life - "What is Evil?, What is Love? What is reality? Is there a soul?". All the things you last got to talk about when you were drunk on the floor of your college dorm room at 2 am....
