In the second hour, JD is joined by authors R.U. Sirius and Jay Cornell for a discussion about their latest book, Transcendence, which is a fantastic read about our inevitable slide toward the singularity when humans and machines will merge and the era of the post-human will begin.

Jay Cornell is a writer, editor, web developer, and little-known semi-iconoclast. He is the former managing editor of h+ magazine, and the former associate publisher of Gnosis magazine. He is currently senior web developer at Landkamer Partners, and a member of the Board of Advisors of the Lifeboat Foundation, a nonprofit organization dedicated to defending humanity from existential risks. Email him, but note that spammers and scammers will be found and consumed by swarms of nanobots.
