Wunderdog



On my Patreon you can get English pdfs of my comic books Stem Cells and The Saga of Olav Sleggja. I've also got an English-language podcast, Wunderdog, where I talk to scientists I admire about stuff I'm curious about (humanity's future, to be precise). On Wunderdog I've had guests like:


professor Philip Lubin from NASA

Talking about Breakthrough Starshot, a giant laser intended to push probes out of our solar system at staggering speeds)


dr. Cynthia Phillips from NASA JPL

Talking about NASAs plans to explore Jupiter's volcanic, but ice-covered moon Europa, widely considered a great place to look for extraterrestrial life)


professor James Fallon

& dr Jakob Løvstad

James is well known for discovering with a brain scan that he has a psychopath's brain. Jakob was a programmer and felt a bit too nerdy, started Norway's first MMA gym, became a pro fighter - and here, let's mention that I've known Jakob for years and he never bothered to tell me that he's fought UFC legend Michael Bisping - and then Jakob became a psychologist.


professor Robin Hanson

An economist well respected for his work on prediction markets and for inventing the term "the great filter", popularized by among others Elon Musk, Hanson's fascinating book Age of Em describes how mind upload technology might impact civilization. In this long episode we focus on mind uploads, even though Hanson is a cornucopia of wild ideas. You can find more talks from Hanson here and his blog is here)


More episodes of Wunderdog are to come. Thank you to all my Patrons for supporting this project.
