From particle colliders to virtual reality — the future is coming whether we like it or not. But what will it be like? In this episode of Good and Decent, Senior Video Producer Josh Long and freelance producer Jonathan Rodgers share two stories of people who see our future in two very unique ways. Mark Rodgers is a science fiction author who co-wrote a comic called “The Blessed Machine” with the late Jesse Hamm. Their comic takes place in a future where Earth was made inhabitable because of a scientific experiment with the Higgs boson — aka the “God particle.”

Then they share the story of J.J. Castillo who is a VR game developer. He believes that VR/AR is the future and that it holds exciting opportunities for future generations. We get to hear both of their views of our future in our latest episode of Good and Decent.
