Lucas/FLI do an excellent job of conducting in-depth interviews with incredible people whose work stands to radically impact humanity’s future. It’s a badly missing and needed resource in today’s world, is always high-quality, and I'm able to learn something new/unique/valuable each time. Great job to Lucas and team!
