Show Notes

Something profound is changing our concept of trust, says Rachel Botsman. While we used to place our trust in institutions like governments and banks, today we increasingly rely on others, often strangers, on platforms like Airbnb and Uber and through technologies like the blockchain.

E0029 - Who Becomes a Leader? (It Could Be You) (S0002)

Are leaders born, or made? Larry Singell answers that question — and others about leadership — with his enthusiasm for basketball and baseball, which has intertwined with his research on leadership throughout his career.
