About This Show
Provocative, profound discussions at the intersection of science, art, and philosophy with "paleontologist-futurist" Michael Garfield and a growing list of awesome guests. This is a podcast that does not forget our largest audience: the unborn future archeologists digging through our digital remains. What messages of value can we leave them? And what will they think about us living in this weird and wonderful transition age, poised on the cusp of planetary renaissance? Explore time, and our species' place in it, through banter of the geeky, unconventional, free-roaming, fun, irreverent, and thoughtful kind – an auditory psychedelic to prepare you for a wilder future than we can imagine.Read more »

Add this to the lineup alongside top shelf visionary dork acts like Duncan Trussell Family Hour and Third Eye Drops – there are too few podcasts out there offering such playful but intelligent conversation, so willing to go deep and not worry what people think.
