Glenn just read Dan Brown's book "Origin," a novel that uses facts to anchor a science fiction thriller. So obviously, he had some thoughts about our changing world. On today's show, Glenn shared some predictions for the future, including what robots will mean for our jobs and how rapidly technology will change the world we know now.

Here's some of what Glenn covered in this segment:

  • How we should expect more technological change in the next 20 years than in the last 100
  • Why technology is rescuing countless people from poverty
  • What the rise of robots will mean for millions of jobs
  • Why he calls himself an "optimistic catastrophist"
