Listen to Dr. Future Show 8.12.14 with report by Ethan Bearman

We too mourn the loss of Robin Williams and share some of reminiscences of the man and what his life meant to us.  He was quite the techie, and often did jokes like, ‘Is it rude to Twitter during sex? To go “omg, omg, wtf, zzz”? Is that rude?’

We are also joined by journalist and talk show host Ethan Bearman for his take on the Middle East, after visiting Israel earlier this month.  He shares with us some of his insights and adventures from the journey and answers the question, “Why go to a war zone?”

We also raise the issue of ebooks as a disrupter to the book publishing field as evidenced by the current Amazon.com vs Hachette Publishing dispute, which we discuss in some depth. Enjoy!

Future News and Nick Herbert on Thinking about Climate Change

Listen to Dr. Future Show 8.05.14 with Nick Herbert

For our 200th show we have friend and physicist Nick Herbert help us understand in the complex topic of climate change.  He has been fascinated with the topic since reading a book by John Muir discussing Alaskan Glacial melting in the 1800’s, before our current carbon dioxide increase driven by the Industrial Revolution.  With a history of interpreting Science for the layman, he does a good, if not controversial job for us! Plus, there is his poetry..

But first Nick joins us in a rousing discussin of Future News, including the Rosetta Probe, a fuel less space drive, potato bag spying, testosterone civilization, crystalline recorders and metallic alloy 3D printing.

Future News and Discussion of Music and AI with Dr. Eliot Handelman and Andie Sigler

Listen Now to Dr. Future Show 7.15.14

For this show we have broken with tradition and combined our news segment with the interview, by inviting the guests to be part of the news commentary.  Both Andie Sigler and Eliot Handelman are experienced with radio and we thought we’d take advanatage of that and their intelligence to create an interesting and dynamic show. 

We explore news items like an on/off switch for consciousness, a smart cam for fingers, and new radio bursts from beyond our galaxy. As far as the MIT vs McGill shananigans Eliot mentions…well…you decide..

For the second half, we focus on Eliot and Andie’s ongoing work with music and computers, especially the intersection of music and AI. A verfy dynamic conversation we where explore what is possible and what is pragmatically possible.  

The show was recorded live at Casey James Basichis’s sunny loft in Montreal, Quebec, a music composer for the Cartoon Network working with Eliot and Andie on an AI music composer software project.
