Today's guest is Bill Goldstein, Director of The Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory.

LLNL is hard at work protecting Americans and solving some of our largest existential threats; from protecting the nuclear stockpile to fighting global pandemics. Bill has been at the helm of that massive ship for over six years and has overseen some of the world's most incredible projects.

It’s an interesting time for Bill, LLNL, and the world at large. We are so excited to have Bill join us today and share his insights into the research that is helping solve some of the world's most concerning problems.

In today’s episode, Chad and Bill discuss:

  • The work that the LLNL is doing in nuclear development and how deterrents help prevent attacks rather than instigate them
  • The fascinating work that the LLNL is doing to help slow climate change, and how there is the potential to get California to zero carbon emissions by 2045
  • How Bill is thinking about coronavirus and the long-term outcomes of this pandemic
  • The day-to-day operations of LLNL and the knowledge and culture transition that it’s undergoing
  • And much more!
