Episode Description

President Trump unleashed a tweet on Monday about the state of the economy, which he said is thriving. "Highest Stock Market EVER, best economic numbers in years, unemployment lowest in 17 years, wages raising”. Is it true?; Is CRISPR an exciting step for mankind or giant leap toward our demise? DNA “editing” has led to fears that such manipulations could alter the course of human evolution. It has also triggered warnings about “designer babies,” in which parents customize their IVF embryos by adding, removing, or changing genes for certain traits; . There is an old saying that the team is only as straong as its weakest link and that is why it is so critically important to take a lot of care to build your team. . If it is a finely oiled machine working to a strong compass, your company is well on the way to success. In our interview segment we have an interview by legendary Silicon Valley venture capitalist Tim Draper from his blog series The Startup Hero.

Paul Amori

My guest today is Paul Amori. He is running for Mayor of Los Angeles to spread love over the city. While this message of love and everyone getting along is a contrast to the divisive, self interested politics being practiced by the major parties, there is great policy substance behind the attention getting image. I went to a presentation of Pauls a couple of weeks ago on solving LA’s homeless problem. A deep thoughtful presentation that would solve the issue quickly and at a fraction of the cost proposed by others.Paul’s first foray into the world of politics came when he was elected mayor of the Lightning in a Bottle music festival in 2012. As a token of his esteem for the festival and its multi-cultural attendees he created Amori’s Casino & Burlesque, a late night venue that celebrates love in all its myriad forms and passions. Over the last four years Amori’s has become a beloved institution at the festival and he has continued to serve as the festival’s honorary mayor. View Guest page
