This week the conversation starts off with Justin excitedly telling Doug about a hashtag he finds very clever, #SkepticalLyrics, but Doug is slow to jump on the bandwagon. This leads the guys to reminisce about jobs they’ve had that played “corporate radio” all day as well as how people got questions answered before the days of Google. Our dorks move seamlessly into their main topic which is different industries becoming automated and the concept of implementing a universal wage in order to lessen the blow of people losing their jobs to robots. The heroes discuss how technology has changed society’s physiology and whether our current society could recover if there was a Walking Dead style apocalypse?
Things are wrapped up in a throw-down with today’s society forced back into “hunter/gatherer mode” vs. our original hunter gatherer ancestors.
