    How to Invent and Invest In the Future with Josh Wolfe

    The best way to predict the future is to help invent it. That's exactly what today's guest is doing as the founder and managing director of Lux Capital, where he invests in emerging science and technology ventures at the outermost edges of what is possible. Josh Wolfe (@wolfejosh), renowned Forbes journalist and visionary thinker, joins us on the show to share why we should question everything, how modern stressors differ from those our ancestors faced, the 3 important "M's" in life, and some future advancements to look forward to (like the digitization of human scent). Josh is incredible, and it's safe to say there's something for everyone in this episode.

Fantastic!

This podcast features great conversations about trends that are impactful to everyone. The conversation between Sahil and Greg is excellent and they do a great job highlighting the signal from the noise.

This ain’t it

You guys need to change the format around.
Either prepare properly for the interviews with guests or develop an actual agendafor a conversation between yourselves that you do research for and stick to.

As of this last episode (older adults) it’s a mess. The first 25 minutes of the show is Greg and Sahil rambling about pepsi, taxes, investing security deposits in crypto (horrible idea) - completely unrelated topics that Sahil and Greg are just ‘riffing’ on - it’s boring - and then their guest arrives in the zoom room and it’s an abrupt transition to the topic of building technology for older adults. What??

It’s clear that the premise of this show was to listen to greg and sahil talk about new business ideas. That sounds fun in theory, but in reality it comes across as masturbatory and lazy conversation.

My advice is to do some episodes where you guys explore something that is actually being built - and then have episodes where you actually prepare for interviews and stick to that topic.

Amazing convo limited by audio quality

As above.
