PORTLAND, Ore. (PRWEB) May 26, 2021
Sociobiologist and technology futurist, Rebecca D. Costa, announced today she and 12 acclaimed global subject experts have joined forces to host a new subscription podcast titled The Costa Report. Similar to the previously syndicated radio program of the same name, Costa and co-hosts will offer in-depth, politically agnostic, coverage of issues which cannot be adequately examined in 3-minute news segments. The program explores innovative solutions along with pragmatic actions leaders can take to resolve problems which have proven resistant to change. The first episode of The Costa Report is scheduled to air on Monday, September 6, 2021 (Labor Day). The program is currently accepting early subscriptions.
According to Costa, “The reason conspiracy theories, agendized news and misinformation have become rampant is because there’s so little to counteract these dangers. With so much data being generated today, it’s not difficult to string together unrelated facts into a narrative which, on the surface, sounds credible. In fact, the more sensational the narrative, the bigger the audience. The bigger the audience, the more networks charge advertisers. The more they charge, the bigger the profits. It’s a systemic problem which has caused the public to distrust what they read and hear. Our goal is to rebuild the public trust by having world-acclaimed subject experts speak directly to the public – no over-simplification, no politics, no sponsor-driven content, no nonsense.”
The all-star lineup of experts stands as proof The Costa Report is serious about establishing a conduit between authorities in their field and the person on Main Street. From the founder of The Climate Web, Mark Trexler, to former Vice President of Product Development for Abbott Labs, Dan Schmitz, to the Managing General Partner of venture capital firm, Rockport Capital, David Prend, to the legal counsel responsible for educating the House, Senate and Executive Branch on quantum computing, space flight and other emerging technologies, Paul Stimers, to theoretical neuroscientist and founder of Socos Labs, Vivienne Ming, The Costa Report has assembled a depth of knowledge and experience unmatched by any other podcast, television, radio or internet media offering. Moreover, the program’s unwavering commitment to examine issues from all reasonable perspectives distinguishes it from other news venues.
The Costa Report is a 2-hour, advertising-free program which includes 4-minute intermissions which introduce listeners to little-known musicians; report on new technology breakthroughs; feature a “Listener Corner” wherein the questions and comments of subscribers are read on air. Each subscription includes access to an “Ask Me Anything” page (where listeners have direct communication with the host and co- hosts), a free newsletter, discounts on program merchandise and a plethora of other benefits.
