#046 - Santiago Aparicio - Failure is Merely a State of Mind

December 6, 2017
00:0000:00

Since 2012, Latin American start-up culture has appeared from the shadows and is booming. Historically a risk-averse culture that tends to condemn failure, we must ask, why the sudden success? Enter Santiago Aparicio, a 28-year-old Colombian serial entrepreneur who naturally understands how to navigate behind-the-scenes at the highest levels. 

 

Santiago is Co-Founder and CRO (Chief Revenue Officer) of Fitpal - a monthly membership that gives you unlimited access to the best fitness studios and trainers in Colombia. On top of that, Fitpal - a phone app - is now considered the biggest "gym" in Latin America, without having a single building or piece of equipment. He was also Corporate Partnerships Director at Rappi - the UberEats of Colombia, except you can get ANYTHING delivered.

 

The London School of Economics & Political Science, where Santiago graduated with a degree in Advanced Econometrics, is one of the most prestigious Economics schools in the world. Santiago was failing at his University in Colombia, so how did he get into such a distinguished institution? The answer parallels perfectly with how to succeed in Colombian business. 

 

This episode peers deeply into the mindset that guides one of the up-and-coming entrepreneurial stars of Latin America. We tackle cultural differences in the new era of entrepreneurship and why the United States really does dictate business trends. Santiago is no holes barred and shares some of his stories and dealings with major corporations that you won't want to miss.

DJ Billy Kenny @BillyKennyMusic is a British DJ, Producer, and head of A&R for electronic music label This Aint Bristol. 
 
Max Charnas @charnizard is a writer and blogger for the same label - a label known for its confounding ability to make you feel like a grasshopper at a grasshopper party. 
 
We were lucky enough to have Billy join the bus for an EDC exclusive conversation. Why? Because Billy is the closing act on the Cosmic Meadow stage at music festival @EDC_LasVegas (Electric Daisy Carnival); analogous to the Super Bowl of electronic music festivals. Spoiler Alert: he plays an exclusive - the intro of his EDC set. 
 
From stories of their youth and acid experiences to music influences and song discovery, Billy and Max give a real look into their lives during this riveting conversation.

Episode 32: Dr. Scott Solomon - Are Humans Still Evolving?

June 6, 2017
00:0000:00
Dr. Scott Solomon, @ScottESolomon is an evolutionary biologist, ecologist, science writer, and professor at Rice University. His writing has been featured in Slate, Nautilus, Wired.com, and Business Insider. His most recent book is aptly titled "Future Humans: Inside the Science of Our Continuing Evolution," in which he analyzes and answers the principled question: Are humans still evolving? 
 
If evolving, how will humans look in 100,000 years? What role do epigenetics play in modern day diseases? If we colonize Mars, how will the change in gravity and atmosphere affect our biology? Will humans on Mars diverge from those on Earth? These are some of the questions we came into this episode pondering
 
Dr. Solomon takes the bus down a winding and twisting road to help us better understand how evolutionary biology is impacting modern day and future life on this planet. He provides explanation and insight into some of the mechanisms that effect evolution; mate selection, disease, and culture.
 
Don't worry - the bus doesn't stop there. After we breeze past those topics the discussion broadens into some more arcane fields. The bus discusses the effects of bacteria on health and the gut-biome, the potential of virtual reality to evolutionary pressures, CRISPR and genetic sequencing's potential, and whether online dating is messing up natural sexual cues in the search for a mate.
 
This episode was an INCREDIBLE episode all around. The coup de grace is a lasting discussion on the colonization of Mars. Dr. Solomon helps us better understand how humans living on Mars could diverge from those on Earth. Its quite thorough and fun.
 
Looking for another science episode? We spoke with Michael Hinden extensively about botany and epigenetics in Episode 026. Listen to it here.
 
The Bus Weekly Fuel
 
Hak Paks One Pot cooking sauce, Thai Green Curry Sauce is the food we are most enjoying. No preservatives, Non GMO, Gluten Free! We purchase ours on Thrive Market.
 
The blog/vlog we are watching is Elliot Hulse which preaches a message of becoming the strongest version yourself in order to empower one another - bioenergetics. Check out his Youtube channel to find out things like how to overcome depression and interviews with the Ice Man himself Wim Hoff.
 
The Instagram page we can't stop viewing is @Beeple_crap. This page has some incredible dystopian transhuman futuristic graphic art.
