Rebecca Costa is an American sociobiologist, futurist, author, and host of the podcast, The Costa Report.  She is the preeminent global expert on the subject of "fast adaptation" and brings both an evolutionary biologist and technologist's perspective to the subject of adaptation.In other words, humanity is evolving in extremely bizarre ways due to a rapid rate of technological advancement. Nobody has made sense of what that means for our futures better than Rebecca. After retiring, she spent six years researching and writing the international bestseller The Watchman's Rattle: A Radical New Theory of Collapse. Her follow-up book titled On the Verge was introduced in 2017, also to critical acclaim.You can't miss this one, so listen as we discuss:How both Rebecca and I are both a bit East and a bit West (and fully nerds).Why data is undoubtedly the best guide for decision-making and position-taking.There are no facts about the future, only probabilities, but they're becoming more likely.How we could have predicted the 2017 Las Vegas shooting and stopped it.Why AI will not be self-serving because intelligent beings don't serve themselves."We have Paleolithic emotions, Medieval institutions, and Godlike technology."Predictive technologies and why the weather report will soon be 100% accurate.Humanity's model of decision making is not wrong. It's just slow.We have data indicating that major disasters are coming, but we're not designed to care.When society becomes too complicated, it adapts by collapsing as a reset mechanism.You need food, shelter, water, love, and meaning.

Manufacturing and supply chain issues continue to affect most industries and if you are remodeling your kitchen or buying new appliances you might want to prepare for some delays. Some people have had to wait months and in extreme cases a year to get the appliances they ordered. To get by, some are using loaners from appliance stores or even doing dishes in the bathtub. Austen Hufford, manufacturing reporter at the WSJ, joins us for all the appliance delays. Next, President Biden's numbers have not been improving much and it seems to be the very thing he promised to fix, the pandemic, that's dragging him down. While there have been some really bad headlines with Afghanistan and immigration, the pandemic looms large as people experience fatigue with continued regulations. Christopher Cadelago, White House reporter at Politico, joins us for why Democrats are worried that Biden can't shake the pandemic. Finally, Facebook and Instagram have been under a lot of scrutiny after a whistleblower leaked internal documents about what the social media giant knows about how toxic Instagram can be to teen girls. In response, Instagram is working on features to help them take a break and nudge them away from harmful content. Kim Lyons, deputy news editor at The Verge, joins us for more.
