Zoltan Istvan — author of “The Transhumanist Wager” — appeared on the December 7, 2013 episode of Brave Hero Radio with Karla Porter to talk about transhumanism and his book. I was busy at a conference in Connecticut, unable to attend for this episode.

Enjoy the show and consider donating to help keep our show, which costs $40 per month, online.

Expect to see more activity on involving real-world activism and much more starting next week. I will soon have a break from graduate classes, work, and other obligations which have diminished my frequency of writing.
