    56) Good Country

    Over the last 20 years, Simon Anholt has advised Presidents, Prime Ministers, Monarchs, and Governments of over 60 countries. He's written six books including The Good Country Equation: How We Can Repair the World in One Generation. Simon has created the Good Country Index which takes a number of factors to rank the "goodness" of each country and has given a few Ted Talks. One of which titled, "Which Country Does the Most Good for the World," is the all-time most viewed Ted talk on Governance, and the 4th "most inspiring" Ted Talk ever.

    53) Drugs and The Brain

    53) Drugs and The Brain

    I had a great time speaking with Professor David Nutt. We discussed his research on how drugs impact and directly affect the human brain, but more notably what his research means to the world. Not only that, but we even dove a little into his chairman history of the Advisory Council on the Misuse of Drugs (ACMD), and the politics surrounding what happened when he revealed, "Ecstasy is no more Dangerous than Horseback Riding."
