In this episode of the Future Grind podcast, host Ryan O'Shea speaks with the controversial, semi-anonymous, and enigmatic biohacking pioneer Lepht Anonym. Lepht has been featured by WIRED and the BBC and has been documenting it's biohacking experiments on its blog, Sapiens Anonym, since 2007.
Lepht is most well known for a 2010 talk titled "Cybernetics for the Masses" that it gave in at the 27th Chaos Communication Congress in Berlin, Germany, which detailed Lepht's DIY self-surgery & "homebrewed" implants. This has been referred to as "Scrapheap Tranhumanism", which is also the title of a 2010 article that Lepht wrote for Humanity+ Magazine.
*A word of warning - Biohacking is dangerous and things can go wrong. I strongly advise against self-surgery of any kind, and you should consult with a trained medical doctor before moving forward with any type of human augmentation.
