SPECIAL GUEST: John Danaher. We're joined by again by our guest from Episode 150, John Danaher, to talk about the impact, philosophy, and legality of #sexrobots. Is society ready to deal with these technologies? What impacts will these robots have on our relationships, on our lives? What responsibilities do we owe to the consciousnesses we may create? Will these help or hinder our quest to better treat each other? Join us as we dive into these questions. Recorded 4/19/2015.

Robot Overlordz Podcast # 162: Thoughts of the Future

Robot Overlordz is a podcast all about the future.  So we dig it.  Every Tuesday and Thursday, we will link to their latest podcasts.  We also recommend going back to previous episodes and giving those a listen as well.  Guests have included Katie "Miss Metaverse" Aquino, Zoltan Istvan and many others.

The link to the most recent episode is here...

3...2...1... Launch!

Welcome to Future/Culture Magazine, which is actually more of a blog, but sounds cooler.  As you can see from the mission statement in the description above, this site is all about the changes in modern society brought on by the rise of the information age.  We will be examining...well... the culture of the future before it arrives.  It is not too difficult.  We look at history, trends, science, socioeconomic and political changes, philosophy, art, music, entertainment, technology, and the people who will be leading us into the next phase of our digital lifestyle.

In the coming weeks, we will be profiling and interviewing Kira Marie Nightingale (aka Crystal Violet), futurist, musician and founder of Radical Science News.  We will also review books by Zoltan Istvan, Ramez Naam, Rachel Haywire, Dr. Aubrey de Gray and Dr. Ray Kurzweil.  There will be a retrospective of the canceled-too-soon television series Caprica and we will delve into the futurist views seen in the films Interstellar, Limitless and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.

We welcome your submissions.  Just email them to our Editor-In-Chief, Travis James Leland (aka TJL-2080) at tleland1980(at)gmail(dot)com and put Future/Culture Submission in the header.

We in the Future/Culture Magazine offices are excited to see where this goes.  We hope you stick with us as we head into the future.
