How to Navigate Future Technology with Sovereignty
In today's episode, I interview one of my favorite humans on planet earth - Matt Gottesman. Matt and I met back in 2017 when I appeared on his podcast The Hustle Sold Separately. [ you can find the episode here ] He is a genius-level entrepreneur who is God-focused, creative AF and always years ahead of the rest in trend-spotting.
I have to say that I left this episode inspired and educated in an area I genuinely felt made no sense prior to this chat. I know many of you approach emerging technology with a cross and garlic cloves like an oncoming vampire attack - but the truth is technology is evolving daily and if you don't at least take the time to understand what is happening and how it is and can be used, it's more likely to have a negative impact on you. This isn't an "if-you-can't-beat-em-join-em" scenario for me. My position remains the same - I say cut the sh*t and fund studying spiritual technology and the capability of the human brain and body above and beyond AI and tech - but - the world is currently moving in this direction. It is hard to protect yourself from and engage with something you don't understand. So, in the spirit of understanding the very thing you despise, let's dive in. Truth be told - you might not hate this part as much as you thought.
