Welcome to the first ever episode of Three Wise Guys.
This podcast isn’t a political platform, a current events show or a standard panel show. This is about three guys from completely separate countries, jobs, backgrounds and experiences sharing a unique look at a range of topics and events, from the effects of science fiction on modern culture (our first ever show) to technological break throughs and its effects on society. We don’t just look at the technology, or the media, or its implementation. We look at the whole, from its ethical uses, to the way it’s developed and its possible uses.
In this week’s show we take a look at Science Fiction and its effects on modern culture, From the Apple Ipad modeled after the PADD in Star Trek to the flying car and the mirror of TV shows and the decades they were made in, from the optimism of Star Trek in the 60’s, to the grim reboot of Battle Star Gallactica in the 2000’s.
From ex military, to a self confessed renaissance man of the sciences and arts, to a world traveled jeweler. Three Wise Guys offers a unique look at the world we live in today and will be tomorrow.
