SHOW NOTES: Swan Songs and Souls: What’s Even Real Anymore?

Have you spent a lot of time wondering what’s real and what’s not? What has a soul and what doesn’t? Where will our future and technology take us next? Well if you watch Apple TV’s Swan Song, you’ll be thinking about all of those things a lot. You’ll also think about cloning way more than you’re used to. This movie had us talking about the philosopher Descartes, Einstein’s theory of relativity, cloning humans, souls, and what we would all be willing to sacrifice for the people we love—even if it meant lying to them. LOTS TO UNPACK in this one. Enjoy!

Check out our latest episode on Spotify, Apple Podcasts, Stitcher, and anywhere else you can listen to podcasts! And be sure to tell us your thoughts on Twitter. The Grounded Geeks theme song is brought to you by Feyzan Beats.
