The pace of innovation driving humanity forward feels like it’s gone into warp speed over the last couple of years.
But while exponential progress and technological innovations can seem like miracles, they’re anything but. Scaling these technologies to impact billions of people’s lives is where the real work begins.
Age of Miracles is a narrative podcast that goes into the nitty gritty details of what it will take to go from idea to innovation to implementation to impact. Each season, host Packy McCormick, a venture investor and writer of the Not Boring newsletter, covers a different cutting-edge corner of the tech industry, whose ideas are right on the cusp of impacting the mainstream.
The first season of Age of Miracles is about nuclear power and creating a future of energy superabundance. Nuclear energy has experienced a surge of public support in the last year, after decades of decline – but what will it actually take to build more nuclear? What can we learn from past failures? Is nuclear fission or fusion more likely to work? And how can we all work together to accelerate progress? Packy and this season’s co-host, Julia DeWahl, dive into all of these questions and more.
