388 – Kevin Russell (Former TechnoOptimist)

By August 13, 2019October 14th, 20192 Comments

Kevin is one of the smartest, most thoughtful people you’ve never met. His 15 minutes of fame came when he and his daughter were featured on a TV show, focusing on his technique of helping her overcome fear by balancing on his hand. Formerly a leader in the world of Techno Optimism, being a dad has led him to rethink some of his previous positions. We talk about everything from God to AI to drugs to the importance of podcasting.

    For the longest time I felt alone in this “civilized nation.” Feeling sorry for myself because my piece didn’t fit the puzzle. All the while gazing up into the blue marmalade sky. I’m not alone anymore
