Oh dear Lord.

This week’s guest is Meow-Ludo Disco Gamma Meow Meow, one of the biggest characters I know.  Meow is the founder of Sydney’s Biofoundry whom I met at the Commonwealth Bank of Australia’s Innovation Lab in February – he's a modern trickster-wizard par excellence, entirely too smart for his own good, and he loves to argue – this is one of the most wide-ranging talks on Future Fossils yet!  

Enjoy part 1 of a special double feature that continues next week…
