Nick Benoit
We believe that people should be excited about the future of science and technology. Following these topics should be as accepted and celebrated as following major sports teams. We promote this ideal by rejecting nerdy tropes, stupid puns, and by speaking casually and conversationally about complex topics. We aim to make these events accessible and understandable for all people. We deliver all of this information through this podcast and through our iOS app. Thank you for listening and please consider downloading the app!
