Ars on your lunch break: Have you ever questioned the nature of your reality?
Today, we’re launching “season two” of Ars on your Lunch Break, in which we take episodes from the After On Podcast and break them into two or three segments of roughly a half hour each. You can then listen to them while having lunch at your desk, while partaking of other meals, or while eating nothing whatsoever. It’s that interactive!
We ran the first set of these episodes on Ars in the summertime. They included in-depth conversations with folks including George Church (one of the world’s top bioengineers), Rodney Brooks (one of the world’s top roboticists) and Tim O’Reilly (one of tech’s top thinkers and commentators—and certainly its top publisher).
Your host in the audio segments is me, Rob Reid—a long-time entrepreneur who now podcasts and writes science fiction. My show is built around deep-dive interviews with world-class thinkers, founders, and scientists. I talk about my podcast’s approach in the introduction to today’s segment, and I won’t repeat all that here.
