  1. Former Enron CFO Andy Fastow on the Problem of Legal Fraud (w/ Quinton Mathews)

    Former Enron CFO Andy Fastow is infamous for his role in Enron’s collapse; however, since serving his time and reflecting on his actions, he has turned over a new leaf, speaking about ethics and the problem of "legal fraud". In this interview with Quinton Mathews, managing member at QKM, Fastow argues that the biggest problem is the incredible number of loopholes that exist, allowing executives like himself to mislead and misrepresent without ever breaking a specific law and even having these misleading statements signed off on by corporate lawyers and auditors. Using poignant examples from Enron and other companies, Fastow highlights many of these loopholes and makes the case that closing them alone could not prevent the problem. Since leaving prison, Fastow has also began investing in a potential solution—Keen Corp’s natural language processing software, which he believes if implemented could help corporations to avert white collar crime and detect problems in their ranks before gaining too much momentum. Andy Fastow can be contacted at FormerEnronCFO@gmail.com and KeenCorp can be contacted at NorthAmerica@KeenCorp.com. Filmed on December 16, 2020.

  2. How to Focus to Change Your Brain | Huberman Lab Podcast #6

    This episode introduces neuroplasticity- which is how our brain and nervous system learns and acquires new capabilities. I describe the differences between childhood and adult neuroplasticity, the chemicals involved and how anyone can increase their rate and depth of learning by leveraging the science of focus. I describe specific tools for increasing focus and learning. The next two episodes will cover the ideal protocols for specific types of learning and how to make learning new information more reflexive.

  4. John Lewis Gaddis, “On Grand Strategy”

    John Lewis Gaddis discusses his book, "On Grand Strategy", at Politics and Prose at the Wharf on 5/7/18.

    Featuring the insight, wit, and mastery that won him a Pulitzer for his biography of George Kennan, Gaddis presents a history of grand strategy from the ancient Greeks to the 20th-century’s world leaders, discussing in depth the theory and practice of figures including Herodotus, Sun Tzu, Octavian, St. Augustine, Machiavelli, Elizabeth I, Philip II, the American Founding Fathers, Clausewitz, Tolstoy, Franklin D. Roosevelt, Isaiah Berlin, and many more. One of today’s leading academic historians, Gaddis, Robert A. Lovett Professor of History at Yale, synthesized his popular course on the Cold War into the definitive The Cold War: A New History. In his new book he does the same with the seminar on “Studies in Grand Strategy” that he’s co-taught for nearly forty years.
