Every piece of technology you use has a story of how it came to be. Some of those stories are fascinating. For example, did you know YouTube was originally a dating website? It’s one of the many stories told by Dagogo Altraide, creator of the Cold Fusion YouTube channel and author of the book, New Thinking: From Einstein to Artificial Intelligence, the Science and Technology that Transformed Our World (https://amzn.to/2T8RmUu).Listen as Dagogo explains fascinating backstories from the original telephone to the iPhone, Netflix and even the movie, Toy Story.

There is an assumption in the U.S. that if you get sick, you go to the doctor and he or she will fix it. The problem with that assumption is that it isn’t true for a lot of medical problems.

Robert explains why healthcare can’t fix a lot of problems and what you can do to stay healthy and live a long time.
