Liam’s podcast! On indefinite hiatus, but still a bunch of conversations on the human side of space settlement that will keep being really interesting even after we start settling the cosmos.

Blindsight by Peter Watts
Hard scifi featuring some of the themes that we discussed in the episode. Mind segmentation, consciousness, etc. Good!

Show Notes

Episode 4 – Hang the DJ

The one with the dating. Like The button, but instead of one person it’s thousands. And instead of a million dollars you get a date. And still only maybe. Calculating Black Mirror horribleness for comparison between episodes. Massive data-crunching techniques.

Episode 5 – Metalhead

The one with the robot thing. Comparison with the new SpotMini.

Episode 6 – Black Museum

The one with the museum. Weird sex stuff. Don’t touch my nipples! The Schmidt Pain Index. The value of actually doing and recording research. Black Mirror trashy romance novels. Pleasure buttons. Sensory mapping. Consciousness partitioning. Liam was on Turn with this dude from this episode! Diffuse vs localized brain injury. Communicating with locked-in patients. Split brains! You Are Two! Waiting for law to catch up with dystopian technology.
