What We Do
I started following Seth Abramson on Twitter more than a year ago, and saw his feed as a keyhole into Robert Mueller's investigation. I found his ability to sift the signal from the noise in the realm of Trump-Russia investigation to be unparalleled, and have been simultaneously pleased that he's been right about everything thus far and horrified that he's been right about everything thus far.
In this interview, we talk about how this past year of Twitter notoriety has affected him personally, his broad explanation of the different threads that Robert Mueller might be looking at, and what gives him hope that we will be able to get off this knife's edge.
I talked to Nathan Rubin, the founder of Millennial Politics, about young people being shocked out of apathy by Donald Trump, Twitter's bot problem, and the potential for new technologies to further erode our ability to discern fact from fiction.
I spoke to 24 year-old Spencer Bounds about why he decided to run for Texas House of Representatives against a 50-year incumbent, the dark money flowing through Texas politics, and why he left the Republican party.
I talked to Sarah McBride, the author of newly released book "Tomorrow Will Be Better," about being an advocate for trans youth in the context of the Trump Administration, why we have such a hard time talking about death, and what makes us hopeful.
This week on Millennials Don't Suck I talked to Jesse Damiani about what's new in cryptocurrency, cutting-edge trends in VR and my fear of a dystopian future (I just watched Altered Carbon and was very freaked out), and his biggest fuck-up (hint: it has to do with auditioning for a reality show...).
This episode I interviewed J. Caleb Perkins, founder of Remedy Network, about moving to New York City after reading a New Yorker article, becoming a mental health advocate for millennials, and how faith has impacted his life.
This week I interviewed Aaron Levy, founder of Raise the Bar, about how companies are struggling to retain millennials, changing corporate culture, and the qualities that make someone a great leader. I love his clarity of thought and ability to articulate the things he thinks need to change.
This episode me (AND MATT!!!) talked to Danni Washington about her her science education TV show, what the heck biomimicry is and how people are creating all kinds of cool technologies based on it, and the importance of mentorship to her career as a science advocate.
I interviewed Brian Lischer, the CEO of Ignyte Branding Agency, about the neuroscience of marketing and the degree to which basic colors and shapes inform many of the fundamental decisions we make. He also educated me on crazy topics like The Sequence of Cognition, Triune Brain Theory, and Panopticism.
With over a decade of experience in branding, digital marketing, and design, Brian has worked with brands in the industries of healthcare, life sciences, technology, financial services, and more. His work has been featured in major publications including Forbes, Entrepreneur, Huffington Post, and Brand Quarterly. Inc. Magazine named him one of the top branding experts in the country.
