On our 20th episode and third live test edition on Deep Talk Radio Network, 2016 Presidential Candidate Zoltan Istvan joins host Jim Perry to discuss a possible future in which Transhumanism has changed every part of our lives.
More on Zoltan:
Zoltan Istvan is the 2016 US Presidential candidate of the Transhumanist Party, a political organization dedicated to putting science, health, and technology at the forefront of American politics.
At the age of 21, Zoltan began a solo, multi-year sailing journey around the world. His main cargo was 500 handpicked books, mostly classics. He’s explored over 100 countries—many as a journalist for the National Geographic Channel—writing, filming, and appearing in dozens of television stories, articles, and webcasts. His work has also been featured in many major television channels, such as CNN, FOX News, and BBC.
Zoltan writes futurist and transhumanist-themed blogs for The Huffington Post, Vice’s Motherboard (Transhumanist Future), and Psychology Today (The Transhumanist Philosopher). He has also written for Slate, Gizmodo, Daily Mail, Salon, Newsweek, Wired UK, Singularity Hub, The San Francisco Chronicle, and Outside.
In addition to his award-winning coverage of the war in Kashmir, he gained worldwide attention for inventing the extreme sport of volcano boarding. Zoltan later became a director for the international conservation group WildAid, leading armed patrol units to stop the billion-dollar illegal wildlife trade in Southeast Asia.
Back in America, he started various successful businesses, from real estate development to filmmaking to viticulture, joining them under ZI Ventures. He is a philosophy and religious studies graduate of Columbia University and resides in San Francisco with his two daughters and physician wife.
Zoltan is the creator of the Immortality Bus, a 40-foot vehicle shaped like a coffin to spread the message that science can conquer death. Zoltan and the bus--along with many futurists--recently toured America and posted a newly written Transhumanist Bill of Rights to the US Capitol. The 4-month journey aboard the Immortality Bus, often compared to Ken Kesey and the Merry Band of Prankster's adventure on the bus Further, generated millions of views in the media.
Zoltan recently published The Transhumanist Wager, an award-winning, #1 bestselling Philosophy book describing philosopher Jethro Knights and his unwavering quest for immortality via science and technology.
