The Other Life podcast had its biggest month in May. We're still pretty underground—growing the podcast has never been a focus—but we're seeing a little liftoff with 18k downloads in May. Thanks for listening and sharing with your friends.
Today, I want to share some highlights from the latest episode, Software as Soulcraft and the Metaphysics of Engineering (#193).
Neal Davis is a professor of computer science, a PhD in Nuclear Engineering, and director of Urbit's Hoon School.
Here are some highlights for your lunch break:
- If you build something correctly, God will come to dwell in it (8:10)
- Why solving nuclear fusion might be a disaster (1:06)
- Why you should read old books (1:05:05) and how to select them (1:00:45)
- Why ethics and aesthetics converge, according to John Milbank (42:26)
Listen to the whole episode on the Other Life podcast—you can find it anywhere you get your podcasts.
