Past guests include included Prof. Laurie Santos, who studies comparative cognition and teaches about the psychology of a good life, Prof. Paul Bloom, author of Against EmpathyProf. Mushfiq Mobarak, development economist and board member for the Jameel Poverty Action Lab, the renowned ethicist Prof. Shelly Kagan, CEO John Mackey of Whole Foods, and more.
