Professor Muller has had an incredibly illustrious career, and to cover all of his accomplishments in a single podcast would be impractical. To name just one, he led the project which eventually led to the Nobel Prize winning discovery of dark energy.
This podcast is focused on his current and ongoing ventures, as well as some of his yet to be confirmed theories, and some general life lessons.
In this episode of the podcast, I spoke with professor emeritus Richard Muller about a wide-ranging set of topics, including:
- His work with Berkeley Earth, and how developing countries can work to lessen their impact on the environment and the atmosphere,
- The harm of Al Gore's 'documentary', An Inconvenient Truth, has done to the credibility of the scientific community.
- What a president ought to know about North Korean nukes,
- Why time continues to flow, as outline in his newest book Now: the Physics of Time
- How his current startup, Deep Isolation Inc. is working on a new method for nuclear waste storage,
- His surprising analysis of current POTUS Trump's energy plan in comparison to that of previous POTUS Obama,
- and much, much more.
Jeremy Hammer is the founder and CEO of BearX (formerly Bear Founders), an online portal into UC Berkeley’s community of innovators and entrepreneurs.
In this podcast, YJ sits down with Jeremy to dig deeper into the unique journey through life that lead him to founding BearX.
We talk about his high school hustle of flipping used Audi’s, trading playing cards, joining the Navy for 6 years and taking online classes on the side, to eventually getting into UC Berkeley’s Haas School of Business and starting his current venture, BearX.
BearX started as one of many projects for Jeremy, and is currently a part of Skydeck Accelerator’s hotdesk program. What started as a project meant to scratch his own itch of not knowing about all the startups and projects in the ecosystem is quickly becoming UC Berkeley’s hub for startups, founders, and talented students to quickly connect and form relationships.
