In the second season of Anatomy of Next, explore every aspect of going to Mars, transforming it into a habitable world, and building a new branch of human civilization. How do we bring a cold, dead planet back to life? Can we build an atmosphere on Mars, thaw the frozen plains, and build an ocean? How do we seed a barren land with life, and make a red Mars green? Then, it’s everything from politics and education to money, music, and architecture. What does it mean to be human on an alien world?

This guy is brilliant
This is honestly the most intellectually dense but also approachable Podcast on the internet.
For those who will build a better future
The world of Podcasts is filled with noise. When I found Anatomy of Next: Utopia, I was hopeful that it would be the signal. It is. I listened, loved it, and subscribed. I'm pumped for the next episode in the series. If you're courageous enough to turn our current dystopia into Utopia, you've got to listen to this...
Everyone should listen to this. It's rare to find a podcast (or any content, really) that almost immediately moves you past your current realm of thoughts and and perspectives, and then actually keeps you there long after the closing music. It magnifies one's perhaps unknowingly-held beliefs around humanity, our future, and our potential; invites the active imagining of a future much larger than the versions typically occupying our mindshare; and then anchors those possibilities in the very real technologies (and cultural pulls) surrounding us today. It's also just fun. Highly recommend.
