Episode 36 - The Future Of Food pt 1

This week I begin a run of shows on the future of food, food production, technology, and farming. Everything from self-driving tractors, drones, lab grown meat, vertical farming, and GMO seeds is on the table for discussion.

Also, robots in China and NASA's Europa mission
