In this talk I hope to motivate a connection between two very unintuitive ideas, holography and entanglement. I will start by introducing the idea of holography and its relevance to today's pursuit of a quantum theory of gravity. Latter, I will argue for a close connection between entanglement and the emergence of a holographic dual spacetime (whatever that is). I'll finish by tapping my self on the back showing some stuff that I was involved with, am involved with, and things that interest me. However, I'll try to keep things non technical and focus of the main ideas.
