Zoltan Istvan, an American-Hungarian, first caught the world’s attention when he began a solo, multi-year sailing journey around the world at the tender age of 21. His main cargo was 500 handpicked books, mostly classics. He's explored over 100 countries—many as a journalist for the National Geographic Channel—writing, filming, and appearing in dozens of television stories, articles, and webcasts. His work has also been featured by the New York Times Syndicate, Outside, San Francisco Chronicle, The Huffington Post, BBC Radio, Travel Channel, and in much other media.
Zoltan recently published The Transhumanist Wager, a fictional thriller describing apatheist Jethro Knights and his unwavering quest for immortality via science and technology.
In addition to his award-winning coverage of the war in Kashmir, he gained worldwide attention for pioneering and popularizing the extreme sport of volcano boarding. Zoltan later became a director for the international conservation group WildAid, leading armed patrol units to stop the billion-dollar illegal wildlife trade in Southeast Asia. Back in America, he started various successful businesses, from real estate development to filmmaking to viticulture, joining them under ZI Ventures. He is a philosophy and religious studies graduate of Columbia University. He resides in San Francisco with his daughters and physician wife.
What is the next evolutionary stage of humanity? Ted Chu has some surprising answers. A world-class macro economist, futurist and former chief economist at General Motors and the Abu Dhabi investment Authority, he is currently a professor of economics, but for the last 15 years his second career has been focused on the philosophical dilemmas raised by today’s transhumanist movement and humanity's place in the universe. He is the author of Human Purpose and Transhuman Potential: a Cosmic Vision for Our Future Evolution.

Kashmir is a perfect model for world conflict. It is decades long and rooted in imperialism. It is maintained by religious differences and the ability of ruling parties and foreign interests to keep its people divided. International corporations that profit from a deeply unjust economic and political system manipulate governments and their militaries to preserve their power and increase wealth of a small class of international economic elite.
Understanding the historical roots and the way the current situation has developed is essential to understanding how to end the wars that it epitomizes. Few are better qualified than Zoltan Istvan, a journalist, documentary producer and author who covered the conflict for years beginning in 2002. We also talked about his visionary novel of a just future society, The Transhumanist Wager.
On November 16, SFPI Radio explored this problem and the elements of a solution that involves the creation of a united international front against fascism and war at the grassroots level.
