It’s time to reimagine our world from the ground up.
On this podcast, we’ll engage people who have transformational vision. Leaders in business, government, science, and technology who want to remake our healthcare systems, build pandemic-proof buildings, end poverty, and create a new community of nations. Leaders who see inspiring opportunity in the midst of this global tragedy.We’ll make sense of how we got here and what's really at stake if we don't change. More importantly, we'll reimagine what life can look like moving forward.
