Join us for our latest Futurish episode full of no stupid questions, but many stupid answers. Get the latest Covid lockdown developments and learn from Pete all about RNA and DNA and why this is important to better understand the latest vaccine developments. We also look into Sony’s reveal event of the PS5. What do we, experts in design, have to say about this very bold and futuristic design? It may or may not have something to do with objectophilia... Yes, you read correctly. This episode is a weird one, after all! Lastly, we end this episode with some nerdy discussions on the future of gaming and why Pete will never see Half Life 3 come to life.

With a slight delay due to very important reasons (fighting off an evil alien race and solving some quantum physics problems), we managed to record our latest episode. In this episode, we talk about what we have been up to lately, why meetings suck and how to make them less terrible, and why remote work has probably come to stay. Finally, you will witness something that we thought was once impossible; Pete doesn’t love Elon Musk anymore, and he has some good reasons to do so.  As always, relax and tune in for some Futurish time with Pete and Gerhard. <3 References: Stillness is the Key by Ryan Holiday Starward Whiskey Animal Crossing Sous Vide Frisbee Golfing Vanguard (Investment Platform) --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/futurish/message
In our latest episode we are trying out the fireside chat format, in which we simply ask each other casual questions ranging from our current habits and routines, what books we have read lately, what movies we would recommend and why guilty pleasure like TIGER KING are just perfect for times like these. Lastly, we end this episode with some 100% organic and vegan nerd talk about Animal Crossing: New Horizons. What a game. As always, relax and tune in for some Futurish time with Pete and Gerhard.

Crazy times we're living in, aren’t we? In this episode, Pete and Gerhard come together to exchange their experience of the coronavirus pandemic as two normal citizens in this world. We look into how Australia and Finland are dealing with the crisis and how we try to make the best out of it. What opportunities can future employers do to change their working culture to support more remote work, and how might we get rid of traditional brick and mortar solutions such as physical supermarkets? We also discuss how to use this time to reflect, reground and come out stronger at the end of this crisis - both as individuals and as a human race.

Join us for this very insightful episode where Pete and Gerhard share the three things they have learned in the previous decade, and the three things they would like to explore, or focus on in this decade.  We look into why your ego is your biggest enemy for personal growth, how it is important to never stop being curious and asking questions, and why we should see life as a series of micro lives instead of one big life. Also, Pete and Gerhard discuss their choice of whiskey for this episode. Very important.

For our 20th anniversary we decided to talk about how to make ideas happen and get sh*t done. For this we look into examples of companies, and successful creative professionals, who have cracked the balance between the novelty of an idea and execution. Because so often, innovation is overrated and what counts the most is actually great execution. So, what are you waiting for? Make your ideas happen!

Join us for a very special episode, in which Gerhard talks about his 4-week coding bootcamp experience and what it taught him about life, himself and learning. Afterwards we use Netflix’s latest documentary, “The Great Hack”, as a launchpad to dive into the dangers of technology getting out of our control, and our data as a human right. We finish this episode with a dystopian look into the future where Elon Musk’s latest startup - Neuralink - will reach the consumer mass market.
