The second episode of the new Robot Overlordz podcast features guests Rob and Douglisio talking about their film project NEO, a theatrical, filmic look at neo-evolution.

SPECIAL GUEST: Ford Fischer (News2Share). Series 2 is here! The first episode of the new Robot Overlordz podcast features guest Ford Fischer talking about his IndieGoGo project to fund a documentary on Transhumanism. We've talked about transhumanism before in Series 1, but the topic has become a bit more mainstream as some of the technologies and ideas of transhumanism have become more commonly known. Ford's documentary aims to take a look at the people and communities that are creating a new philosophy and how that philosophy is reshaping our politics and society. Tune in and find out more... plus a new bonus feature to Robot Overlordz, thanks to some prompting from the awesome Singularity Bros. Recorded 12/10/2016.

Offshore tax havens. They’ve been in the news a bit lately, especially in relation to one of our otherwise favorite companies, Apple. So this episode we tackle the topic of offshore tax havens, the double Irish whatever it’s called, and what’s fair. There’s a bit of contentious disagreement, mid-ep, for those that like controversy too. Things get a little heated, but all in the service of thinking through some very complicated ideas… Recorded 10/18/2016.
