Living in the Future

From Star Trek to Minority Report, movies have captured our imaginations about what the future of tech – and our world – will look like.

This series - hosted by Michael Fisher - explores the cool, wacky and far-out tech that the entertainment industry has dreamed up and how some it has gone from the big screen to everyday life.

Wi-Fi, 5G, and the "Always On" Internet Connection, with Kelly Hill

May. 04, 2023

Scanners; communicators; computers – as exciting as the technology of the future can be, absolutely none of it matters without a constant connection to ... somewhere else. And the same goes for the technology of the present: every time you ask Alexa to play a song, or send your exercise stats to your Fitness Friends group chat, or navigate to a new part of town, you're relying on a connection that we used to call "going online" back when far fewer people were "on the internet." Here's how today's technology keeps most of the planet constantly connected.

How Cars Learned To (Mostly) Drive Themselves, with Edward Niedermeyer

Apr. 13, 2023

From Total Recall's Johnny Cab to Minority Report's Lexuses of 2054, the self-driving car has co-starred opposite countless future-dwellers, a perennial signifier that "hey, this movie is set in the F U T U R E!" But about five years ago, the whole idea of a car that could drive you (instead of the other way around) started to get a lot closer to science fact than fiction. Michael Fisher (aka Captain2Phones) chats with author and podcaster Edward Niedermeyer about how far we’ve come with self-driving cars and what challenges lie ahead.
