Welcome to The Disruptors, the podcast about today, tomorrow and the future of humanity. We bring today’s top minds to discuss the future they are creating. From genetic engineering to manned space travel, AI and automation to factory farming, education and healthcare, the purpose of this podcast is to not only predict the future, but to create it.
I started The Disruptors to bring together scientists, startups, innovators and thought leaders to have thoughtful discussions on the direction of our species. I believe we engineer the future we envision and by working together as one, we can build a better world.
