    PODCAST TRANSCRIPT: https://actuaries.logicaldoc.cloud/download-ticket?ticketId=86822f1d-5cfa-4f9d-8c9e-8994f9de6508

    Dr. Karl Kruszelnicki gave a jam-packed, wondrous Keynote speech to around 500 actuaries and insurance professionals at the Actuaries Summit in June 2019.

    A few months later, the quirky scientist, Triple J radio-host, qualified doctor and engineer, received the 2019 UNESCO Kalinga Prize for the Popularisation of Science in recognition of his longstanding commitment to fire up people’s curiosity for science and share his passion for the subject.

    In this fast talking interview with Actuaries Digital Editor Steph Quine, Dr Karl gives kudos to actuaries for their long term data tracking and early pointing out of key patterns like:

    1. if you smoke cigarettes that it's bad for your health, and you die sooner; and
    2. climate change is as real as it's appearance on insurance premiums.

    "Long term they're [actuaries are] giving us a snapshot of our society day by day, month by month, year by year, decade by decade, going back over generations," said the doctor.

    In a chat that ping pongs from global emissions, to running for politics, to peace, war, technology and several book reviews, Steph just keeps up with Australia's favourite scientist.
