For the past eleven months I have been looking for a podcast that engages my understanding of multiple interdisciplinary topics, stimulate my curiosity on subjects I am interested in, and help me understand and answer questions I have about complex topics in a simple, straightforward, and dare I say FUN and inspirational conversations. I am happy to announce that I have found it in this Future Fossil podcast.
Available on both iTunes and Spotify, Future Fossils is an add free, crowd sponsored show that explores our space in time. It is essentially a time capsule stored as an audio file intended to highlight the scientific, philosophical, and technological advancements in research and development happening today for our curious ancestors in the future. The podcast episodes range anywhere between an hour to two hours long, and one of the things that makes Future Fossils stand out over other educational channels is that you don’t have to listen to the podcast episodes in order for you to have a relative understanding of the topics being covered. The host, Michael Garfield, is an evolutionary biologist, artist and musician who goes through strenuous lengths of doing hours worth of research, editing, note-taking, outreach, and upkeep with every episode. He does this act of service out of love for all sentient beings. A truly educational, altruistic and entertaining podcast that I, for one, enjoy.
