Pulp Crazy – The Last Evolution by John W. Campbell

In this weeks episode my cousin Adam and I discuss John W. Campbell’s ground breaking science fiction story “The Last Evolution”. This story originally appeared in the August 1932 issue of Amazing Stories and is one of the first appearances of the technological singularity concept.

Now when we get to talking about the population of New York City, forgive us country boys for being so far off the mark.
