The Frontier Beyond Fear
UFO Disclosure and Spirituality

The Frontier Beyond Fear

This Tuesday, there will be an open congressional hearing in the U.S. on the UFO phenomenon, and this has not happened in over 50 years.  How can we reflect on this topic in a spiritual context, beyond a strictly "nuts and bolts" perspective?  It's important to note that science and spirituality, when they honestly and non-dogmatically explore genuine pathways to truth, are not at odds with one another.  Even so, we can expect significant discussions from multiple perspectives as this new chapter unfolds. Frontier Beyond Fear host Susan Larison Danz had a lively, in-depth discussion on the UFO Disclosure topic with expert and  advocate Stephen Bassett in early 2016.  With the caveat that it has been 6 years since that interview and no doubt some things have changed, you can listen to that entire 90 minute interview here:  Stephen Bassett: Extraterrestrial Disclosure (Interview from January 2016) With degrees in Mathematics and Computer Science, writer, researcher, mystic and philosopher Susan Larison Danz combines logic with spirituality in all of her endeavors, sharing a free-flowing authentic, intuitive and liberating perspective with listeners.  Nature photo by Susan Larison Danz.

Guests:Ed Felten (twitter.com/edfelten)Tushar Jain (twitter.com/TusharJain_)Host:Richard Yan (twitter.com/gentso09)Today's motion is “We should always reduce MEV on blockchains."Generally speaking, MEV or Miner Extractable Value is a way for miners to derive additional revenue by executing transactions based on information in the mem pool. For instance, say a miner notices a transaction in the mem pool waiting to be included in a block. Maybe this is a transaction to buy up some cheap Ethereum. The miner can execute that purchase themselves, at the expense of the trader that placed the original order. And of course, this means value got extracted by the miner, transferred from the original trader. This behavior pattern, of course, applies to both miners and validators. Or to all block producers, to be generic.The question is, is MEV an inevitability of blockchain systems? Are there ways to reduce it? Are our resources better spent creating systems that reduce as much MEV as possible, or should we acknowledge their existence and try to distribute that MEV more fairly, or at least transparently?Our two guests today include a layer-2 founder and a VC well-versed in this area. It will be a great discussion.If you're into crypto and like to hear two sides of the story, be sure to also check out our previous episodes.

When facing technical difficulties with your computer, the easiest solution is often just to reboot it. But can you hit control, alt, delete on a political party? In his book, American Reboot: An Idealist's Guide to Getting Big Things Done, former Republican congressman and CIA officer William Hurd argues you definitely can. Dubbed “the future of the GOP” by Politico and Texas Monthly, Hurd reveals his secrets to success in turning red a large district that has traditionally voted blue. He provides a clear-eyed path forward for America, grounded by what Hurd calls "pragmatic idealism"—a concept forged from enduring American values to achieve what is actually achievable. From his critical analysis of the GOP's foggy vision for the future to discussing the impact of rapid technological advancements, Hurd will tackle five seismic problems facing the U.S. as outlined in his book. Join us as Hurd shares his unique experience as a Black republican in the House, with a vibrant career in intelligence, articulating what domestic policy can look like by appealing to the middle and empowering people. William Hurd served as the U.S. representative for Texas's 23rd congressional district from 2015-2021. He is currently a managing director at Allen & Company and most recently served as a fellow at the University of Chicago Institute of Politics. Additionally, he is growing the U.S. transatlantic partnership with Europe as a trustee of the German Marshall Fund and an OpenAI board member.
