#13 - Mark Turrell and the 25 Year Plan to Save the World
On this special on-location* episode of Love the Problem we sit down with Mark Turrell as he talks about his 25 Year Plan to save everyone on the planet all at the same time.
This episode really dives into why if you are going to solve problems on scale you cannot do it through linear means. You need exponential solutions. We take a long winding journey to learn about how this plan will look in action before finally arriving on how important education is to make everything work. Really interesting episode that touches on more topics than can be named.
*It gets a bit windy in points during this episode!
