Some 300 San Diego Unified high school students learn about STEAM career experiences from five innovators who present new technologies including electric cars, satellites that provide internet connections to airplanes and other moving vehicles, an algae-fueled Baja 1000 motorcycle, and state-of-the art bicycles.

Rupert Spira, author of "The Transparency of Things," speaks here with Paul J. Mills of UC San Diego about the concept of non-duality, or advaita. They explore the idea that there is no separation between the self and the universe -- and how understanding this basic truth will lead to greater wellbeing.

Dorothy Robyn, now an independent analyst, shares tales of her time in government overseeing energy and environmental budget issues on military bases, participating in a public/private partnership with Ivanka Trump that converted Washington's Old Post Office Pavilion into a hotel, and preventing a life-saving satellite system from being destroyed, a feat most recently recounted "Eccentric Orbits: The Iridium Story." Robyn's conversation with Henry E. Brady, Dean of the Goldman School of Public Policy at UC Berkeley, is the second of three in "The Budget Series," featuring UC GSPP alumni who are fiscal policy experts in Washington. Recorded on 11/04/2016.

Messaging expert Anat Shenker-Osorio, author of "Don't Buy It: The Trouble with Talking Nonsense About the Economy," describes how to best influence public opinion. Citing her research on causes such as abortion rights and gay marriage, she argues that the most effective way to change minds is not through the traditional "anger, hope, action" model, but instead to establish shared values with political opponents and then to present the problems that threaten those values along with potential solutions. Shenker-Osorio engages in this fascinating discussion with civil rights attorney Jonathan Stein, a fellow alum of the Goldman School of Public Policy at UC Berkeley. Recorded on 01/05/2017.

Garance Burke, an investigative reporter with the Associated Press, recounts her most impactful work of 2016, including coverage of Donald Trump's crude behavior on the set of "The Apprentice" and the abuse of Central American migrant children in California. She also describes the value of using big data in journalism and AP's new partnership with Facebook aimed at debunking fake news. Burke shares her experiences and insights with civil rights attorney Jonathan Stein, a fellow alum of the Goldman School of Public Policy at UC Berkeley. Recorded on 01/05/2017.
