Episode 37 - The Future Of Food pt 2 - Interview with The Farm Babe

This week I chat with the Farm Babe, Michelle Miller, about modern farming, farm technology, and myths about farmers (you know, the scant handful of people who feed us all).

Also, Bill Gates on taxing robots, and the Icarus Project for interstellar travel.

Episode 22 - Robots in Japan

In this episode we explore robots in use today in Japan, a country that probably has the most widespread use of robots in daily life. Also, a few more bots from China and South Korea

In the news - MIT's Mars Robot and ESA's ExoMars lander.

Plus, the Uncanny Valley
