Episode 12 - NFT Explained
In this second episode of Pesuvom Podcast Season 2, we discuss the new thing that's all over the news and internet, NFT - Non-Fungible Token. NFTs transform digital works of art and other collectible items into verifiable (using blockchain technology) assets that are easy to trade with each other (e.g. sports cards, Pokemon cards). We discuss the technology behind it, how to trade and what might be the consequences of doing so. After recording the episode, we realized it is pronounced as 'fun-jhi-ble' and not 'fun-gi-ble'. We apologize for the pronunciation mistake.  Also, you can BUY this episode as an NFT at OpenSea - Link to make offer: https://bit.ly/31edBtt  For comments and feedback, Tweet us @PesuvomPodcast.

Episode 11 - Universal Basic Income
Welcome to Season 2 of your favorite Pesuvom Podcast. In this episode, we will be discussing the advantages and disadvantages of a policy idea called Universal Basic Income (UBI). This experimental policy has been implemented at small scales in different parts of many countries, including India (Madhya Pradesh, Delhi). We should always be open to new ideas like this, even though it might have many disadvantages.

Episode 4 - Experiment on Obedience
A few weeks back, we listened to an interesting podcast from Hidden Brains, that got us to learn more about a particular topic they discussed in that episode: the Stanley Milgram experiment. In this episode, you will learn about the famous Milgram experiment and comparisons to the current day scenario. In the latest findings, a lot of these psychological experiments (Milgram experiment, Stanford Prison experiment etc.) have been found to have had some bias, but the hypothesis and results of these experiments were still very intriguing, worth sharing.  For comments and feedback, Tweet to us @PesuvomPodcast , to send a voice message, please use the link in this episode description.
