We Are As Gods offers a compelling deep dive into the many sides of Stewart Brand – creator of The Whole Earth Catalog, an influential member of Ken Kesey’s “The Merry Pranksters,” a founder of the modern environmental movement, and today a vocal advocate for bringing back extinct species of animals and plants. Brand’s approach to his work and life influenced many, including Steve Jobs, who have gone on to shape our modern world. Now in his 80’s, he looks to leave a legacy for the future with his foundation and efforts to “enhance biodiversity through genetic rescue of extinct and endangered species.” The man who coined the phrase “we are as gods and might as well get good at it” is now under fire from former allies who believe he’s gone too far, but Stewart Brand won’t be easily deterred from a mission he feels is necessary to save the future of the planet.
