41: Transhumanist Wager

We tackle the big issues this week with the trends emerging in online sales during Thanksgiving/Black Friday and take a deep dive into the politics of transhumanism. What does it mean to be human? What happens when we no longer need our biological bodies? How will we be ready? On the news front, Alibaba dominates the headlines, while Zuckerberg announces that he’s giving his wealth away. Amazon refuses to let up on their drone delivery proposal and Yahoo refuses to die. Bless.
