This episode, Jason and Chad tumble into a memetic wormhole when exploring a cryptozoological science fiction piece called “And Whether Pigs Have Wings” by Nancy Kress, and are saved by their virtual assistant.
We also feature a short clip of our upcoming interview with Brian Dowtin, who is a computer scientist working on some of the whys and hows of technology.
Brian picked an Omni interview between Bob Guccione and futurist Alvin Toffler, who wrote Future Shock.
We’ll connect a lot of dots between Brian’s work and this prescient voice of future past as we take a nostalgic Big Trak journey into the collective hallucination we call childhood.
