I was honored to have a chance to record an episode of the WWI Podcast with the legendary Dr. Christopher Ryan. You may recognize his name from his many appearances on the Joe Rogan Experience, his successful podcast Tangentially Speaking, his TED talks, or perhaps his best selling book Sex at Dawn. His biography is as wild as his adventuresome life. From his website:
Christopher and his work have been featured just about everywhere, including: MSNBC, Fox News, CNN, NPR, The New York Times, The Times of London, Playboy, The Washington Post, Time, Newsweek, The Atlantic, Outside,El Pais, La Vanguardia, Salon, Seed, and Big Think.
A featured speaker from TED in Long Beach, CA to The Festival of Dangerous Ideas at the Sydney Opera House to the Einstein Forum in Pottsdam, Germany, Chris has consulted at various hospitals in Spain, provided expert testimony in a Canadian constitutional hearing, and appeared in well over a dozen documentary films.
... After receiving a BA in English and American literature in 1984 he spent the next two decades traveling around the world, pausing in unexpected places to work at decidedly odd jobs (e.g., gutting salmon in Alaska, teaching English to prostitutes in Bangkok and self-defense to land-reform activists in Mexico, managing commercial real-estate in New York’s Diamond District, helping Spanish physicians publish their research). In his mid-30s, Chris decided to pursue doctoral studies in Psychology...

I had a virus and was laying on the couch fighting a fever and decided to record a solo show. Topics include CNN Leaks, NASA's big announcement, and I think the Nyquil caused me to black out a bit, so there might be more? Take a listen and find out!

I love waxing philosophical about what our lives will be like in the near (very near) future. "How near" you ask? Ray Kurzweil believes we'll have microscopic robots in our brains in 13 years. Too far fetched? He's got an 86% accuracy rate in predicting future technology and the number goes higher if you consider sometimes he is just a few years off.
Topics discussed: Genetically modified babies; Robot love; Would art made by a computer still be art without the human emotion put into it? A a bunch of other tangents. Plus, I tell a few funny stories about terrible awkward moments with patients.

John Taylor, creator of Twisted Podcast and true crime author joins Savanna and me to wax philisophical about the nature of coincidences; the validity of so called psychic detectives; his experience with Mike and Maleah using the Ouija Board and how tough is the job for the Secret Service under the current administration. We also look into the prospect of future law enforcement with predicitve policing (think Minority Report without the people floating in pools).

On this second of Futurism Friday, we spend thi first 2/3rds of show show ignoring the topic of futurism and instead talk about my battle with death! (spoiler - I won). Then Savanna discusses the mainstreaming of AI in 2017 with IBM's Watson acting as personal accountant.
Thanks for listening to the Wait, Wahat If Podcast!

Thanks for listening!
This show was originally meant to be live of FB and we ran into yet another snag. Stay tuned for future video episodes which will most likely be on demand via YouTube.
This was a fun show! We made predicitions for 2017 in technology, science and celebrity deaths. Savanna royally screws up the advert at the start of the show (which I had to leave in) and Mike royally screws up a celebrity prediction - so, all in all it was probably the best show to date!
Thank you SO much for listening and making 2016 so successful. I'm planning on adding much much more content for 2017 and looking forward to your imput!
Happy New Year
