I love the stories of science and technology.  What I find even more compelling, though, is how they relate to our lives and our world.  What will we eat as the world's population increases, and how can tech make sure we're all fed?  How did the Cold War give the planet Earth its own ring?  How does AI compose music?  Does an infinite multiverse mean we have no free will?  And how are technologies helping poor farmers in Africa?  

I think these stories are pretty amazing, and that's why I want to give them a voice in this podcast.
  
SparkDialog Podcasts is a labor of love for me, and has given me the chance to meet incredible people working all over the world.  But, even though podcasts are free, they can be expensive to produce.  Your support will help me continue to produce great episodes and improve the technical quality even more!  Thanks for being a listener, and thanks for joining me in these stories!
