58: Zoltan Istvan

In the 58th episode of NEOHUMAN, Agah is chatting with Zoltan Istvan. Formerly a reporter for the National Geographic Channel, Istvan now writes futurist, transhumanist, secular, and political themed articles for major media, including The New York Times, Vice’s Motherboard, Wired, The Huffington Post, TechCrunch and Newsweek. Istvan regularly appears on television and video channels discussing futurist topics. He is one of the world’s most influential transhumanists and believes transhumanism will grow into a mainstream social movement in the next decade. Istvan is the author of The Transhumanist Wager, a philosophical science fiction novel. In late 2014, Istvan announced his intent to run for President of the United States in the 2016 election. He ran for his own Transhumanist Party to raise awareness for transhumanist politics issues. In 2017, Istvan announced his intent to run for Governor of California in the 2018 election as a member of the Libertarian Party. In November 2019, Istvan announced his candidacy for the Republican Party’s nomination in the 2020 United States presidential election, hoping to win the GOP nomination against President Donald Trump. They talk about wide range of subjects, including technology, politics, Transhumanism, China, innovation, the coming decade, religion, and necessity of cultural shift towards scientific and technological solutions.
