Welcome to the Contrafabulists podcast, Kin Lane and Audrey Watters' weekly discussion of the latest technology (and politics of technology) news.
In this episode, we talk about predictions for the future, brain implants, expeditions to Mars, Planned Parenthood as a startup, and other technological, ideological nightmares.
Rated PG because no one cussed during this entire episode!

Feedback is welcome. (You should email Kin with it though, not Audrey.)
