Thanks for joining The Disruptors

Welcome to Fringe FM, 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 Fringe FM 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.

Please help us by sharing The Disruptors with a friend!

Goals for the podcast

  1. Help create 1000 startups as a direct result of the podcast
  2. Reach 10M individuals worldwide (people NEED to know what our guests are working on – education is the ultimate cure to ignorance and hate)
  3. Highlight 1000 of the greatest inventors, entrepreneurs, scientists and thought leaders that are changing the world
  4. Shift humanity to a more long term focus (short term gratification is often the root of o ur problems)

My personal 10x goals

  1. Live to the healthy age of 153
  2. Add 10-15 years to avg life expectancy in the next 10-15 years
  3. Help end factory farming by 2030
  4. Have a human settlement in space by 2033


Step one in helping create 1000 new startups is the community we’re building on Slack. If you have not joined already, you should do that now!
