Up next on Way of the Renaissance Man, celebrating human achievement with Heartland Institute Research Director and space travel enthusiast Edward Hudgins.
Welcome to the Way the Renaissance Man podcast.
This is a show about ideas, personal empowerment, and celebrating the rational life. Our goal is to help each other discover the tools needed to better focus our minds, integrate our thoughts with actions, and live the lives we really want with your host Jim Woods.
This season, I will continue speaking with many more interesting Renaissance Men, and Women, who can help us identify, understand and assimilate the key ingredients essential to constructing a life well lived.
Like Jim, Ed is a passionate intellectual activist who promotes reason, freedom, individualism and capitalism through his work at The Heartland Institute, one of the world’s leading free market think tanks.
Just some of the topics discussed in this episode include transhumanism, the development of a neural net, the latest anti-aging science, and the brilliance of science fiction writer Arthur C. Clarke. You’ll also hear Ed’s sharp critique of the American education system.
Yet the primary focus of this episode is the advocacy for creating what Ed calls, “Human Achievement Day.” That’s a day designed to remind people of how brilliant the mind in action can be, and what better day to do that than on July 20, the anniversary of the day humans first landed on the moon?
And now, here’s Jim’s conversation with Edward Hudgins…
