About
Jon Richardson and the Futurenauts - How To Survive The Future Comedian and professional worrier Jon Richardson doesn’t sleep much at night. The questions he is asking himself in the small, dark hours see to that. Are we going to run out of food? Is it already too late to stop climate change? Should I start learning Mandarin? Are killer death robots from the future already among us? Will my kids grow up to see a real tiger or giraffe? Could Trump become ‘President for Life?’ Why hasn’t anyone yet made an intelligent hairbrush? Oh they have? As you were…Playing on his own paranoia Jon will discuss his fears with guarded optimists Ed Gillespie and Mark Stevenson aka ‘The Futurenauts’. Authors, futurists and provocateurs, to ease Jon’s angst Ed and Mark take him on adventures through the futures we need that already exist today.

TOPIA SPECIAL 02: The Egg (The Futurenauts interview with Lucy Cooke)

“If Finding Nemo was real, after Nemo's mum had been eaten by barracuda, his dad would have flipped gender and had sex with his son, which doesn't sound like a massive Disney hit!” Welcome to the second episode in this special TOPIA podcast series.  TOPIA is a kaleidoscopic new culture, nature and positive impact magazine where anything goes – as long as it’s good. To tie in with Season 02 being themed (loosely) on ‘The Egg’, this podcast sees The Futurenauts in conversation with the British zoologist behind the gloriously original book, Bitch: A Revolutionary Guide to Sex, Evolution and the Female Animal. Do we need sex at all? Which animals are doing it for themselves? Which species hasn’t had sex for 80 million years? This covers everything you want to know about sexual cannibalism, gender fluidity and Darwin's obsession with the barnacle penis. Imagine a sort of X-rated Mr. Tickle.  Follow @worldoftopia to win a copy of Bitch! and @jandthef for more podcast pleasure. Learn more abo

Episode 8 - The Future of Climate Change

Jon Richardson and the Futurenauts: Episode 8 - Climate [email protected] was the best of times. It was the worst of times. Humanity stands at a crossroads. The mighty forces of progress have lifted billions out of poverty. Energy has lit and warmed (or cooled) our homes and powered us overland, sea and into the air. We grow enough food to feed 10 billion people. And for the first time ever in history the internet is poised to connect every single person on the planet. Together. As one. What could possibly go wrong? If only it were that simple. Unfortunately there is also a lot to be very worried about. Our engine of progress is out of control. We’re destroying beautiful wild and natural habitat at a rate of knots. Humankind has kick-started the sixth mass extinction of biodiversity. Burning billions of years of fossilised sunshine as coal, oil and gas is overheating the planet. Industrial agriculture is destroying our soils, with less than a hundred harvests left.
