Hosts Phil Bowermaster and Stephen Gordon welcome blogger, futurist, and fellow web broadcaster Nikola Danaylov (AKA "Socrates") to FastForward Radio. Nikola reports daily about major trends in science, technology, and society which indicate big changes to come. He also discusses these changes with some of the world's most fascinating people on his podcast, Singularity One on One.
About Our Guest
Philosopher, singularitarian, infopreneur and a fellow party animal Nikola Danaylov was born in Bulgaria.
In 1998 Nikola moved to Canada where he completed an HBA in Political Science, Philosophy and Economics at the University of Toronto plus an MA in Political Science at York University.
It was at York University that Nikola got deeply interested in the Technological Singularity and wrote a research paper titled “Hacking Destiny: Critical Security at the Intersection of Human and Machine Intelligence.” After university Danaylov started SingularityWeblog.com and the popular Singularity 1 on 1 podcast.
During the summer of 2011 Nikola completed the Graduate Studies Program at Singularity University and returned home to Toronto, Canada where he lives with his beloved wife Julie.
Phil Bowermaster and Stephen Gordon welcome futurist and transhumanist Giulio Prisco to FastForward Radio to discuss his new magazine Turing Church, which is all about the convergence of science, technology, religion, and spirituality.
Topics to be explored:
Technology Meets Spirituality -- Why Is This Important?
What's a Cosmist? What do they believe? (More here.)
The physics of miracles (and the problem of evil)
And other big questions. Don't Miss it.

Hosts Phil Bowermaster and Stephen Gordon celebrate FastForward Radio's fifth anniversary on BlogTalk Radio. Special guests P. J. Manney and perhaps one other join to talk about the big changes that have occurred over the past half decade and what we can expect from the next five years.
Plus: what's next for FastForward Radio?
As we all know, the last day on the ancient Mayan calendar is December 21, 2012. To commemorate this historic landmark, we will be doing a special Countdown to the End of the World show! Hosts Phil Bowermaster and Stephen Gordon will be joined by special guest co-host PJ Manney and our good friend science comedian Brian Malow to ring in the apocalypse! On the show, we will be announcing the winners of the What are your plans for the end of the world? contest and we will be sharing some of the most creative answers on the show as well. Also, we’ll be making a huge announcement about the future of The Speculist and FastForward Radio. Don’t miss out. The end of the world is a once-in-a-lifetime kind of a deal. (At best!) About our guest: Brian Malow is Earth’s Premier Science Comedian (self-proclaimed), entertaining and igniting interest in science. Based in San Francisco, Brian has performed for NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology), JPL, the American Chemical Society, Scholastic Library Publishing, the National Association of Science Writers, the Koshland Museum of the National Academy of Sciences, Apple, Dell, and Microsoft. He has also appeared on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson (CBS) and on Tech TV, Discovery, and A&E. Brian is currently a freelance science correspondent, writing and appearing in science video essays for Time Magazine’s website, and is a contributor to Neil deGrasse Tyson’s radio show. He gives workshops and presentations to train scientists to become better speakers. Clients include the National Research Council of Canada, the National Science Foundation.
Jim Elvidge, author of The Universe: Solved! returns to FastForward Radio to discuss new insights into the nature of consciousness and of matter. How much do we really know about either of them? Do we really know what "reality" is made of?
Plus an update on parallel realities, quantum physics, nanotech, and new evidence that we may be living in a computer simulation.
About Our Guest: Jim Elvidge is a Cornell-educated entrepreneur and inventor who holds four patents in digital signal processing. His love of music inspired him to develop one of the first PC-based digital music samplers and to co-found RadioAMP, which was the first private-label online streaming radio company. In recent years he has turned his attention to the ultimate question of existence and, drawing on a broad and eclectic base of knowledge and interests, has come up with a unique explanation for…pretty much everything.
Hosts Phil Bowermaster and Stephen Gordon examine the mysteries of time encoded in living beings all around us. What do present-day species tell us about life in the distant past? And there may be deeper implications. Could the presence of evolutionary ghosts hint at unexpected truths about the origins not just of life, but the universe itself?
Permits for self-driving cars -- does this mean the self-driving future is inevitable?
The abundance of telemetry and natural disasters: how are fitness apps helping us to track earthquakes?
Education: are robots on the verge of creating a permanent underclass?
NASA partnering with the private sector to take astronauts to space
Tune in and explore.
Sure the world is getting weirder, but is it getting Sci-Fi weird? Is it getting Philip K. Dick weird?
Hosts Phil Bowermaster and Stephen Gordon explore evidence that we may be living in a science fiction story. First off, there's this video of PKD himself from 1977 saying that we are living in the Matrix. Was he right? What did he know?
Then there is the evidence unfolding all around us:
Batteries made from sugar
Are we living in an epsiode of the Twilight Zone? Or just an old Dick Tracy comic strip? Or is it something even stranger than that?
Tune in and explore!
What are these mysterious organisms living on the hull of the International Space Station? How did they get there? And how can they survive in space? Is this evidence that life on Earth originated elsewhere? Or is it evidence that life on earth is able to find its way elsewhere? Or both?
Also: The complete story of Kennewick Man. Is a lot of what we know about human settlement in North America incomplete...or just plain wrong?
Plus: The cat who wasn't there. Or who was there, but wasn't a cat. (Or something.)
Tune in and explore.
The Web has been all abuzz about Viv, the new personal assistant agent from the creators of Apple's Siri. Word is that Viv will be able to do "anything you ask."
Even if that proves to be a little on the optimistic side, there is no question that we are in the early stages of a new era of persoanl digital assistants. What are we currently doing for ourselves that we soon won't have to? And what will our new assistants provide to us that was never available before?
Tune in and explore.
PLUS (Time permitting): Dystopias. Who needs 'em?
