The Next at Microsoft blog is a place where the company highlights some of the greatest upcoming innovations that could have potentially dramatic effects on our overall society. Often featuring people from various industries providing their expertise or their opinions on what’s next in technology, the stories featured on the Next at Microsoft provide great insight for readers. In an attempt to provide more meaningful experiences for audiences, Microsoft has launched the Next at Microsoft podcast, which will feature talks by and interviews with interesting people about tech. For its first guest, the podcast invited Internet celebrity George Takei.

Prior to being one of the Internet’s most celebrated peeps (mainly through his glorious Facebook engagement), Takei is most commonly known for his role as Hikaru Sulu in the original Star Trek, as well as Kaito Nakamura in Heroes. In this first episode of the Next at Microsoft podcast, Takei talks about his recent experience visiting the Microsoft campus to shoot a segment of an episode of his web series Takei’s Take. He also discusses how he turns to social media to mobilize social change, as well as offers his impressions of Skype’s Translator.
