#31 - Big tech on the energy overhaul

25 mins | Aug 17, 2021

Today's episode from 18th August 2021. First off this morning: The old meets the new - we learn about a tech startup disrupting the mining industry and we find out why some of the planet's wealthiest people are investing in it. Later on, when was the last time you formed a real bond with someone? We've got some advice on how to make meaningful connections. The clean-energy sector’s appetite for lithium, cobalt, graphite, and other battery materials, grows exponentially. Maddie Stone explores how KoBold Metals artificial-intelligence system, developed in partnership with Stanford University and backed by Bill Gates and Jeff Bezos, can help the mining business keep up with demand whilst accelerating the discovery of new ores and driving down its costs. Being a good listener isn’t just about shutting up and not interrupting; it’s about really taking in what someone is telling you. Annalisa Barbieri, who was The Guardian’s agony aunt for over a decade, reveals how we can all sharpen our listening skills, which will help cultivate bonds with those around us. Wake up with Curio is a different kind of morning show that gives you the context behind the news and gets you motivated for the day ahead, every Monday - Friday.
