121: Brains In Jars Go To The Minnesota State Fair

Night Call

03-08-2020 • 1 hr 12 mins

We start off with a night call about whether your phone camera knows which part of a photo you’re looking at (it does). More chat about phones and surveillance leads to Elon Musk’s Neuralink and a discussion of futurism (both kinds) and transhumanists. Then we get a night email from a listener in Key West about the bind faced by tourist towns with reopening. Emily makes a case for seeing the ocean safely. Then we are joined by comedian and podcaster Brandi Brown (The Bill Corbett Show) who tells us everything you want to know about the Minnesota State Fair, butter busts, her ongoing State Fair related feud with Amy Klobuchar and much more.
