Episode 10: Machines v. Humans & Hops Farming

In episode 10, we chatted with Astrid and Aaron about the possibility of machines and technology outpacing human activity and displacing jobs--a possibility feared at least since the the age of the Luddites. We referenced two relevant Atlantic articles, both by Derek Thompson: What Jobs Will the Robots Take? and A World Without Work. If you enjoyed this conversation, we recommend the podcast Planet Money's series on the topic back in May and the podcast Freakonomics Radio's episode "How Safe Is Your Job?" from January. 

We also talked with them about hops farming and starting their company Heritage Hops. Check out their website to keep up with their new venture and learn more about sustainable hops farming!
