Now, this week's summaries.
- What is the world going to look like in 2030?
Melinda Gates helps to answer this question, citing that each UN country has already provided a list of desires, and all we have to do is work on finding them a solution.
- Would a billion dollars make you happy?
Justin Kan is a successful startup founder with a ton of experience under his belt. Although some amount of money is better than none, Justin claims that money will not make you happy.
On the other hand, being a startup founder is tremendously rewarding.
- What's it like to uproot yourself from San Francisco and to move to a small town in Utah? Sahil Lavingia tells his story on Below The Line. Life in a rural town comes with its challenges, and its rewards. Take a look at the whole episode for the summary of Sahil's experience. It's rather good!
Also, hear what Bryce Roberts, a venture capitalist from Utah, has to say about living in the Salt Lake City.
- How can I grow listener numbers for my podcast? Ah yes, my fellow podcast hosts, growing a podcast audience isn't easy, but the host of Disrupting Japan has a few points for all of us.
