    According to the 2022 report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), the world needs to cut carbon emissions drastically to avoid the worst effects of global warming. But that’s not all. In addition to reducing emissions, we also need to remove 6 to 10 billion tons of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere each year by 2050. 

    This week on How I Built This Lab, Guy talks with Jan Wurzbacher, co-founder and CEO of Climeworks. They discuss how Jan and his team built the world’s largest direct air capture facility, which filters carbon dioxide from the air and stores it permanently underground. Plus, Jan’s optimistic vision of how humans can achieve the goal of reversing climate change.

    Jimmy Fallon may talk like a comedian, but he thinks like a restless entrepreneur. In addition to his day job as host of The Tonight Show, he runs a TV production company, writes best-selling children’s books, and creates products you never knew you needed, like all-day pajamas and “hands high” jerseys that show the name of your favorite team in the armpit. As a kid, Jimmy was obsessed with perfecting his impressions of Richard Pryor and Steve Martin, with the goal of one day starring on Saturday Night Live. After an incredibly successful 6-year run on that show, he tried to make it in film, only to eventually find his way to one of the most coveted jobs in television. Today, he’s constantly generating new ideas, whether for a new TV show, or a Christmas tchotchke called Elvis on the Shelvis.

    YouTubers Kelsey MacDermaid and Becky Wright – better known as The Sorry Girls – have always had an affinity for production. When they met as film students back in 2010, little did they know that the DIY videos they were creating for fun would eventually lead to full-fledged careers co-founding and leading their own media company. But building to where they are now, with over 2 million subscribers and counting, didn’t exactly come with a blueprint…

    This week on How I Built This Lab, Kelsey and Becky talk to Guy about pursuing the uncharted territory of a YouTube career, their philosophies on navigating brand deals, and their take on growing a business in the creator economy without compromising on values.

I absolutely loved this Story

I absolutely loved every second of this story. The passion and amazing work ethic that she has is the reason why she has all these amazing breakthroughs in her life? I cannot recommend you listen to this story enough. I downloaded it to my phone because I'm going to listen to it again right now. Thank you for taking the time to interview this great woman, and thank you so much Christina for sharing your story. It's beyond inspiring!

THE TRUTH THE WHOLE TRUTH AND NOTHING BUT...

I loved this as it educated me on what the media chose not to inform me of! Also for me put to rest the American government did it conspiracy theory crap"
Impressed when I can be taught things I felt I knew a great deal about from all the coverage I trusted (no longer have ANY TRUST IN ANY NEWS ).
I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS BOOK !!!!

most sad when I'm done with the newest episodes

I've been listening to Guy for the past couple of years, now. Although I fall off at times. I'm ahead happy to come back and find the new interviews that he and the NPR team has put together. The podcast enlightens my inner entrepreneur and fills me with inspiration.
