In this episode (recorded 2/22/19), we discuss managing the risks associated with emerging technologies; what’s going on in Venezuela; how Brexit is like “a submarine made of cheese”; the “glass cliff” theory that women and minorities tend to be hired for leadership positions when the chance of failure is highest; and whether a woman, a gay man, a transgender person, or an openly atheist person will be the first to become president of the US.
The intro music is a clip from “Risk” by Metric. You can find NonProphets on Blubrry, iTunes, Stitcher and Google Play.
