Episode 104: Screedgate
More screed in your feed: we tackle the notorious Google memo. This episode&#8217;s topic is the prequel to Need for Screed II: Screedo Shot Last. If you don&#8217;t know what&#8217;s up with this memo yet, you will soon.

Episode 103: Hector Monsegur on Staying Safe Online and IRL
Famous former black hat, Hector Monsegur, gives us the lowdown on how secure we really are (or aren&#8217;t). A troubling conversation with a very cool dude. Hector Xavier Monsegur is a security researcher and Director of Assessment Services at Rhino Security Labs. He was also once a notorious hacker and hacktivist.

Episode 102: Joe Huston on Cash Transfers and Basic Income
Please welcome GiveDirectly&#8217;s Joe Huston to the program. You won&#8217;t regret it. Joe Huston is the CFO of GiveDirectly (Twitter), this podcast&#8217;s favorite charity (or mine, at least). You&#8217;ll notice that, despite the rambling questions and non-questions I pitched his way, Joe is expert at clearly explaining the details of cash transfers, basic income, and GiveDirectly&#8217;s various &#8230; <a href="http://singularitybros.com/episode-102-joe-huston-on-cash-transfers-and-basic-income/" class="more-link">Continue reading<span class="screen-reader-text"> "Episode 102: Joe Huston on Cash Transfers and Basic Income"</span></a>

Episode 101: Diana Fleischman on Disgusting Stuff
Evolutionary psychologist Diana Fleischman talks about what we find disgusting and why. Also, cannibalism and how great it is. Zach and I had a great time speaking with psychologist and lecturer Diana Fleischman. Originally we planned to discuss transhuman and nonhuman ethics, but, as you&#8217;ll hear, we cover quite a bit more territory than that. &#8230; <a href="http://singularitybros.com/episode-101-diana-fleischman-on-disgusting-stuff/" class="more-link">Continue reading<span class="screen-reader-text"> "Episode 101: Diana Fleischman on Disgusting Stuff"</span></a>

Episode 100: James Hughes and the Transhumanist Zeitgeist
Our very first guest—and one of our favorites—James Hughes returns to keep it 100. James Hughes, Executive Director of the IEET, and the first guest we ever had, is back. He&#8217;s the best. Prepare for a transhumanist delight. Notes What&#8217;s that you say? Nicotine is a cognitive enhancer?

Episode 099: You Know the Drill
Amazon is taking over; so what? Plus: thoughts on power drills. Look, drills are technology. So they are fair game for this podcast. Also, according to some jerks, nearly everything is technology. So everything is fair game. Thanks, jerks. Take that, other jerks.

Episode 098: Helicoptration
Helicopter parenting, VR prison pods, and more. Oh my. This one&#8217;s all over the place. Thanks again for the interesting feedback, superheroic listeners. Notes Here&#8217;s what you really came here for: military commercials from our collective memory. Army of one. Marine vs. lava monster. Bobby&#8217;s World (don&#8217;t question it).

Episode 097: Kevin Kelly on Virtual Worlds and Raising the Global Teenager
One day he&#8217;s in Uzbekistan, the next he&#8217;s on our podcast. There&#8217;s no predicting the inimitable Kevin Kelly. Kevin Kelly. Where to start? Whole Earth Review. Wired. A slew of dope books, including The Inevitable (now available in paperback). He&#8217;s a man of deep interests, and a deeply interesting man.

Episode 096: Extreme
No, it&#8217;s not our new line of energy drinks (yet). We talk extreme interests, hobbies, pursuits and the like. Oh, the like. Warning: jiu jitsu is discussed at length. As is fasting. I encourage you to deal. Notes SURPRISE: I&#8217;m a big fan of Jason Fung, founder of the Intensive Dietary Management Program.

Episode 095: No Pain? Insane!
Is eternal bliss desirable? Possible? Intelligible? We discuss, you decide. The singularity gets a bad rap, I think. It&#8217;s often mocked as the rapture of the nerds, and part of that is deserved. There are, admittedly, some singularity-enthusiasts whose picture of the future looks a bit too much like classical heaven to us. But whatever &#8230; <a href="http://singularitybros.com/episode-095-no-pain-insane/" class="more-link">Continue reading<span class="screen-reader-text"> "Episode 095: No Pain? Insane!"</span></a>

Episode 094: Sebastian Brosche on Yoga, BJJ, and Finding Meaning in a World Run by Robots
Sebastian Brosche has black belts in jiu jitsu, judo, and futurism. Respect. Confession: I&#8217;m a huge fan of Sebastian and Yoga for BJJ. I knew I wanted to pick his brain, and the podcast is my catchall pretense for doing that, picking the brains of those I admire. Still, I wasn&#8217;t sure how I was going to spin &#8230; <a href="http://singularitybros.com/episode-094-sebastian-brosche-on-yoga-bjj-and-finding-meaning-in-a-world-run-by-robots/" class="more-link">Continue reading<span class="screen-reader-text"> "Episode 094: Sebastian Brosche on Yoga, BJJ, and Finding Meaning in a World Run by Robots"</span></a>

Episode 093: Robin Hanson on the Age of Emulation
Is the next great era one of whole brain emulations? Robin Hanson makes the case. The inimitable Robin Hanson regales us with a startling picture of the future—one in which human emulations, or ems, are the dominant form of mind. Hmm. I suppose he&#8217;s only inimitable for now. Once brain scanning is mature, he&#8217;ll be v imitable.

Episode 092: Flight Makes Right
We talk about flying cars as if they were real. Turns out, they soon might be. Is anything more emblematic of the future than the flying car? The answer is, &#8220;no, shut up.&#8221; That said, we do talk about other stuff as well. Promise.

Episode 091: The Bloop Curve
Onward and upward. What could go wrong? We put on our Musketeer caps and get giddy about a solar city. Then we go into this whole, weird thing about brains, minds, language, programming, and a bunch of other junk. With any luck, we come out a little less dumb for it. You be the judge!

Episode 090: Robotany of Desire
Sex, crimes, and robots. Get some. We clobber our way through all the delicate, digital dilemmas of the day. Who knew it was so easy? Notes So people think there&#8217;s a &#8220;27 Club,&#8221; comprised of famous famousies who died at 27. Ditto for 32, and maybe 33 as well.

Hedonism 2.0
A little on our collective self-denial, and how it was really hedonism the whole time. Also, other stuff. Spoilerz: basic income. Notes Look, I know we&#8217;re all busy, but it&#8217;s v. important that you know the history of the Power Rangers. Art Smelly&#8217;s &#8220;I&#8217;m Convinced I Can Swim&#8221; &#8220;How does commuting affect wellbeing?&#8221; Spoilers: poorly.

We are the opposite of that wholesome goodness from your childhood. Unlearn how to count to twelve with us. Lessons learned: We can&#8217;t be whatever we want to be and we&#8217;re no better than pigs.

What&#8217;s important right now is that I tell you this: the word musketeer comes from musket. Musketeers were soldiers who carried muskets.
