I was interviewed for the Build the Future podcast:
We talk with Jason about the three layers of progress, how much better the world is now vs. 200 years ago, misconceptions about the space race, knowledge creation, prescriptive optimism (including a take on COVID), and much more!
Cameron Wiese, the host, asked me what world I want to build. My answer: “I want all of us to build a world where we in the future and our descendants are as fantastically well off compared to today as we are compared to the past.”
