  1. Hi Dickson,
    Are you familiar with Isaac Arthur and his science and futurism channel? He dedicates a lot of media to exploring ambitious engineering concepts and their potential for moving humanity forward in the long term. This includes concepts like arcologies – self contained autonomous habitats that would enable flourishing agricultural economies anywhere on Earth or even in space.
    I think Isaac would make an excellent urban ag guest for exploring the long term future for controlled environment farming. Please see this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TqKQ94DtS54
