Aleks Krotoski and Jemima Kiss report from the SXSWi festival in Austin, Texas
An estimated 30.3 million people in the U.S. have diabetes, or 9.4% of the population. In 2017, the costs of diagnosed diabetes totaled $327 billion, including $237 billion in health care costs and $90 billion in reduced productivity. Unfortunately, both the incidence of diabetes and obesity as a key risk factor continue to grow. Industry, government, advocacy groups, and patients are working together to reduce this health crisis in addition to its economic burden. This session will discuss what can be done differently in order to address this costly epidemic and will ask what is stopping us from achieving better outcomes.

We are in the midst of a food revolution fueled by shifting consumer preferences, emerging nutrition science, geopolitical shifts and health crises. A healthier food system would result in better well-being, lower healthcare costs, greater sustainability, and reduced disparities in the United States. With health-care-related costs continuing to rise, it is imperative to focus on food and nutrition as tools to eliminate poor health and to prevent obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and other costly health problems. How do we raise awareness of food as an ingredient in our healthcare system and make best use of new developments in food technology and innovation? What are actionable solutions and policy ideas to prevent disease through nutrition and make our country healthier overall?

As New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez continues to galvanize the left (and frustrate the right), what’s driving her unique appeal has become an increasingly compelling question. Is it her identity or her substantive politics? Or both?
Ocasio-Cortez’s embrace of democratic socialism has been emphasized by the right, which seeks to paint her as out of touch with mainstream American values. But arguably, it’s her progressive ideals that provide the basis for a human-centered politics that connect with a majority of Americans.
The Intercept’s Senior Politics Editor Briahna Gray will talk to Ocasio-Cortez about identity, the race/class divide, and how these factors are likely to play out in the years ahead.
In this episode, I talk with Amber Baldet from Clovyr. We talk about surveillance capitalism and the increasing hunger for data by Silicon Valley behemoths, the impact on society as well as question recent Coinbase decisions and Web 3.0.
In this special crossover episode, Google Method shares an interview from Design Notes—a show about creative work and what it teaches us. Taped at Google Design’s 2018 SPAN Helsinki conference, host Aaron Lammer interviews Isabelle Olsson about her journey to becoming an industrial designer and the intricacies of crafting the design language for Google Hardware. From learning the basics of design from her grandfather (a self-taught industrial designer) to her fascination with materiality and color, tune in as Olsson discusses why it’s critical for designers to be inspired by the context in which products live. Meet our guest: Isabelle Olsson leads industrial design for Home, Wearables, and Color, Material, Finish (CMF) across all Google Hardware. Before joining Google, she was an industrial designer at Fuseproject and OSM. Do you have a burning question for a designer at Google? Or a story you’d love to hear?
Give us feedback in this short survey to help make the show even better.
