Episode 12: Pandia Health - Raising Half the Sky through Women’s Health

Pandia Health is a Stanford-backed startup focused on improving women's health through products and services. Their first offering is a monthly birth control subscription with a doctor's prescription and delivery direct to your door available via a mobile app. Sophia believes this topic involves more than just women's reproductive equality, but also women's health and resulting ability to perform to their highest potential. She describes the health implications of periods on women including higher risk for certain forms of cancer. She also discusses the immense social impact monthly periods have on women's ability to succeed academically and in the workplace compared to their male peers, indicating that giving women the choice to control this factor of their health is tantamount to raising half the sky.

Episode 11: The Race Against Death - Healing the Damage that Ages Us

What would you do if you could live forever? Or even another 10, 20, 30 years? Those questions may be worth pondering if we consider aging as a disease that can be cured by medical science. Welcome again to Imagine Human, where we share inspiring visions for the future of humanity. In this episode, we talk with Dr. Aubrey De Grey, the founder of SENS Research Organization, a nonprofit dedicated to curing aging. Dr. De Grey discusses how he and his team have identified seven mechanisms of accumulated damage within the body that they believe are at the root of most chronic diseases, and ultimately, aging. He shares the logic behind this approach, the opposition he overcame from the wider academic community, and the progress of the organization's research thus far.

Episode 10: Transformative Tech Academy - Educating Social Impact Entrepreneurs

The last thirty years of scientific advancement has made it possible for technology to benefit cognitive and emotional well-being at scale. This is due to increased understanding of the mind-body connection; scalability of the internet; and advancement in computing and biosensors. More than ever we have begun to recognize as a society that mental health affects all humans and has profound effects on our quality of life, relationships, and physical health. In this episode, we are joined by Rui Ma, the co-founder of the Transformative Technology Academy, or TTA for short. The TTA is a free online academy that provides specific education to entrepreneurs developing technologies at the intersection of mind and body to improve human potential.

Episode 7: The Rise of Industrial 3D Printing — The Future of American Manufacturing

3D printing has been around longer than most people think first invented by an American engineer, Chuck Hull, in the early 1980s. Despite its nearly 40 year existence, 3D printing has yet to take off as a viable alternative to widely-accepted manufacturing processes like injection molding. The technology remains fraught with issues such as low yield and high material cost. In February 2011,The Economistran a story called “Print me a Stradivarius” - and even then the idea of mass printing of physical objects still seemed out-of-reach. However, over the past few years, 3D printing has finally evolved beyond a mere hobbyist’s tool and is now at the cusp of becoming a scalable manufacturing process. Today, we interview Chris Prucha, founder of Origin, a company closing the gap between 3D Printing and what Chris identifies as the major three deficiencies preventing this technology from moving to the next stage. In our discussion we explore the current state of global manufacturing. Ch...
