    How Google parent Alphabet's VCs Invest in the Future (ft. Gene Frantz, CapitalG)

    To figure out what direction society is going, every now and then we like to check in with our friends in the investment space—after all, they’re highly motivated to get the future right. That’s why I wanted to talk to Gene Frantz, a leading investor in cybersecurity and enterprise tech and General Partner at CapitalG, the private equity firm owned by Google parent Alphabet. 
    Gene’s track record includes backing some of the most significant tech companies of the past decade, including CrowdStrike, Zscaler, and Freshworks Collectively, his investments at CapitalG have achieved nine major exits, including four IPOs, and are worth more than $125B. 

    We talk to Gene about how much emotion should come into play when investing in startups, the problem with greater sums of money going into capital rounds, identifying the companies of the future,  how many hits you need to offset the investments that don't pay off, and more.

    Science, Politics, and a More Sustainable Planet (ft. Saleem Ali)

    Saleem Ali is the Distinguished Prof. of Energy & the Environment at the Univ. of Delaware. He’s known for his work in environmental conflict resolution and was recognized as an “Emerging Explorer” by National Geographic. Dubbed the “The Alchemist” by Forbes, Ali connects politics, science, and nature in Earthly Order, weaving narratives of his experience as a National Geographic field explorer throughout. I’ve included advance praise for the book below my signature. He’s also the author of Earthly Order: How Natural Laws Define Human Life, which just hit shelves July 1.

    We discuss how  natural and social/political systems influence planetary crisis (and climate change in particular), how climate change acceptance evolved over the time he's been focused on this topic, and how much hope we should have for the future, considering how much work there's left to be done.

    Uncertainty: Thriving Despite Inflation, Geopolitics, and Supply Chain Woes (ft.Nathan & Susannah Harmon Furr)

    Uncertainty: Thriving Despite Inflation, Geopolitics, and Supply Chain Woes (ft.Nathan & Susannah Harmon Furr)

    According to INSEAD professor Nathan Furr and entrepreneur Susannah Harmon Furr—yes, they are married—we really can learn how to face the unknown and find the creative opportunity – the capacity for innovation - that it represents. In their new book The Upside of Uncertainty: A Guide to Finding Possibility in the Unknown, which hits shelves mid-July and is available for pre-order now, they present a reassuringly practical approach to help us all develop the critical skills we need for dealing with uncertainty. 
    We discuss whether or not uncertainty can be a blessing in disguise, leaning into serendipity, how much the pandemic has changed our relationship with uncertainty, and today's current challenges relating to inflation, supply chains, and politics.

    The Downside to Middlemen (ft. Kathryn Judge, author & Columbia Law professor)

    The Downside to Middlemen (ft. Kathryn Judge, author & Columbia Law professor)

    The Covid-19 pandemic triggered a supply chain crisis that has disrupted peoples’ lives in every corner of the globe and continues to unfold. But the current crisis is just the tip of the iceberg of a much broader, pernicious, and long-term problem: the dark side of the “middleman economy.”
    In her new book DIRECT: The Rise of the Middleman Economy and the Power of Going to the Source, on sale now! financial expert and Columbia Law professor Kathryn Judge reveals the surprising and insidious ways that middlemen rule our economy and our lives. While Amazon and Walmart are probably the most vivid examples of all-powerful middlemen, there are middlemen in domains beyond retail, like real estate, food, cars, cbanking, and even philanthropy. Obviously middlemen have gained their power for a reason – they have given consumers unprecedented choice, convenience, and lower costs—but as Kathryn discusses in her work, the benefits come at a steep cost to people, the economy, and our planet, so I’m excited to discuss her work with her now.

Future Proof is fun, enlightening, and thought provoking. Jeremy Goldman explains it all with insightful humor, intelligent questions and fascinating guests.
