The Not There Yet podcast is a ongoing series of short essays covering a wide range of subjects from the perspective of the second decade of the 21st century. Typically running from five-to-ten minutes, they are intended to be thought provoking, challenging, sceptical and hopefully funny once in a while. They are sometimes conventional in nature and others are a little more experimental. They cover science, sports, technology, philosophy or just about whatever subject comes to mind. Sometimes they look forward, other times they look back. They will not, however, take up a lot of your time.
