The Future And You
Ideas and opinion about the future based on verifiable facts of today.
The Future And You--June 4, 2014

Eight Interviews from ConCarolinas. (The SF&F convention that got me started podcasting.)

Guests include: Edmund R. Schubert (editor-in-chief of Orson Scott Card's Intergalactic Medicine Show a poplar online magazine of science fiction and fantasy), Cheralyn Lambeth (a real ghostbuster & author of Haunted Theaters of the Carolinas), Janine K. Spendlove (author), Gail Z. Martin (author & podcaster), Ron Garner (promoter for Silence in the Library Publishing), Stuart Jaffe (author & podcaster), Jonah Knight (musical performer and composer), and Jada Diaz (the Con-Chair of ConCarolinas).

Various Topics discussed: ghostbusting in the real world, why travel by train is so much more fun than travel by air, ebooks, audiobooks, nuclear power, scified eggs, and one of my guests gets arrested by the Mandelorian Mercs when someone put a bounty on his head. (For those unfamiliar with the Mandelorian Mercs: Boba Fett, the bounty hunter who captured Han Solo in the second Star Wars movie, was also a Mandelorian Merc, and wore their familiar style of uniform, helmet and rocket-powered jet-pack.)

BTW: You can watch a video of me moderating a panel at this con on the topic of Transhumanism. Wesley Davis (one of my listeners) posted it on youtube.
