Brain implants inbound: In Musk we trust?

TIME has named Elon Musk ‘Person of the Year’. Legal journalist Mollye Barrows outlines the intrepid entrepreneur’s landmark achievements that helped turn Tesla and SpaceX into household names. Now people wonder if Musk’s fortune and fame are enough to convince us to get brain implants under his new venture with Neuralink. Tech expert Ian Khan and Boom Bust co-host Ben Swann discuss how bionic implants, QR codes, cryptocurrency, and a surging dependency on cloud services have reshaped the global tech landscape since Covid-19 first arrived.

Progressive radio talker Jon Elliott and Boom Bust’s Ben Swann break down the re-casting of cable news pundits, and how our growing digital dependency has forever changed the way we consume news.
