The Transhumanist (tea-time) show!

David and I decided to run a little experiment in which we would have a conversation under the spell of a great British tradition: Tea time!

Joining the mindful and the pleasurable.

Our first iteration was mostly on the topic of mental health. But we shared also our views on Brexit and how a better approach could have been in order.

Honesty and simplicity over posturing is the idea.

As you might notice. Alcohol is pretty high on the list.  On par with Cristal Meth and worse than Cocaine!

Like every experiment it starts small and humble and grow from there. That's the idea of the "MVP" or (Minimum Viable Product).

Our aim is to refine the formula until we find the sweet spot! 

But we'd have to say we're quite happy with the end result and plan to do more of these in the future.

But what would it be?

Tell us!
