Provocative, profound discussions at the intersection of science, art, and philosophy with paleontologist-turned-futurist Michael Garfield and a growing list of awesome guests. This is a podcast for our largest audience: the unborn future archeologists digging through our digital remains. What messages of value can we leave them? And what will they think about us living in this weird and wonderful transition age, poised on the cusp of planetary electronic culture? Explore time, and our species' place in it, through banter of the geeky, unconventional, free-roaming, fun, irreverent, and thoughtful kind – an auditory psychedelic to prepare you for a wilder future than we can imagine.

Great Pod, Glad it's on iTunes.
Up through epsiode 6, I would describe Future Fossils as a combonation of the Long Now Foundation's zoomed-out perspective and Expanding Mind's fasination with subcultures.
Cerebral, intellectual, and not pretentious
As only Michael Garfield seems to be able to consistently deliver, this podcast is equal parts challenging and fun. Great intellectual conversations with interesting guests. Glad to finally see it on iTunes.
You won't be disappointed!
A great gift
Thank you, Michael and Evan, for remembering the kind of work (and banter) that's important, and for giving enough of your irredeemable time to ensure we remember too. You've created an exquisite fossil worthy of being carried beyond the eschaton; three cheers.
