Episode 26 – the future is up for grabs

What a show for the re-launched Sciblogs podcast!

Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak

I talk to Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak, the creator of the Apple I and the engineering genius to Steve Jobs’ design brilliance.

We catch up with futurist Mark Stevenson who was in Wellington recently as a “brain for hire”.

And I ask Sciblogger, Professor Shaun Hendy, what made the late Sir Paul Callaghan such a visionary science leader.

It’s a slightly longer bumper issue thanks to my exclusive interview with Steve Wozniak. Typically the podcast will clock in at under 30 minutes.
