Understanding Death to Understand Life with Andrew Steele and Carl Zimmer

Crosscut Talks

Science can't fully explain what life is. Three experts try anyway in a conversation about life, death and our desire to push back the expiration date. Talking about life and death is tricky for anyone, even scientists. Despite considerable research over the course of generations, scientists still don’t fully understand what life is, what death is or even what separates the two.  But where science lacks understanding, there are theories and questions about what makes something alive and how to keep living things from aging. And there are intriguing thoughts on the ethics of efforts to prolong life. These are the questions at the heart of this episode of the Crosscut Talks podcast, featuring Andrew Steele, author of the book Ageless: The New Science of Getting Older Without Getting Old, and Carl Zimmer, who writes the New York Times column Matter and is the author of Life’s Edge: The Search for What It Means to Be Alive. Led in conversation by University of Washington doctoral candidate Halli Benasutti, these two experts discuss life, death, aging and consciousness. And while they may not be able to arrive on concrete definitions of these elusive concepts, they certainly have very interesting insight into each. --- Credits Host: Mark Baumgarten Producers: Sara Bernard, Brooklyn Jamerson-Flowers Event producers: Jake Newman, Andrea O'Meara Engineers: Resti Bagcal, Viktoria Ralph --- If you would like to support Crosscut, go to crosscut.com/membership.

PitchIt Podcast 45: Andrew Steele, Activant Capital


On episode 45 I talk with Andrew Steele of Activant Capital. Activant is a global investment firm that partners with high-growth companies that transform commerce. I wanted to bring in a growth investor to bring a different perspective to founders that tune into the show. While our core focus is early-stage companies and investing, I wanted to examine the next phase in the growth curve. It was fascinating to hear about the evolution of Activant, they started out as a $75mn growth fund writing a handful of checks in the $15mn range. They have since transformed to have 4 funds with more than $2.1bn in assets under management. Andrew and I talked through how Activant evaluates and invests in companies, why they focus on infrastructure themes, why investing is more than just writing a sizable check, how their investment thesis has evolved since fund one, valuations, what’s next in fintech, and much, much, more. So without further ado, I present Andrew Steele of Activant Capital. I hope you all enjoy the show and be prepared to learn: Andrew's journey to Activant Capital Activant's investment thesis Activant's evolution since being founded in 2015 The value add that comes alongside the check Why infrastructure is a focus for the fund Where valuations stand today How they counsel companies on good press and bad press What he is most excited about in fintech How he stays focused on their thesis as fintech moves at breakneck speed Why in-person meetings cannot be replicated by Zoom Why it's better to read than not read Favorite book: 1984 by George Orwell Last book read: Say Nothing by Patrick Radden Keefe And much more...

How to harness first-party franchise data, with Andrew Steele of LighthousePE

The Global Franchise Podcast

Data is an essential part of a brand’s growth, which we’ve covered extensively on the podcast and throughout previous issues of Global Franchise magazine. With it becoming increasingly challenging to harness third-party data, however, franchises need to start looking inward. For example, more than 75 per cent of iOS users around the world have rejected app tracking since the release of Apple’s iOS 14.5.   First-party data has historically been viewed as an expensive area to tread into, which has caused some smaller organizations to forgo this invaluable source of customer activity. With companies like LighthousePE now working alongside franchises big and small, however, the possibilities are beginning to broaden.   But what is first-party data, and how can it be used for brand growth? To answer these questions and many more, we caught up with LighthousePE’s CEO, Andrew Steele.  To keep your finger on the beating pulse of franchising, sign up for our newsletter at global-franchise.com, subscribe to our definitive magazine, and join the conversation with our experts today on LinkedIn, Twitter and Facebook.

A Book Review - Ageless: The New Science of Getting Older Without Getting Old by Andrew Steele

Pb Living - A daily book review

With the help of science, could humans find a way to become old without getting elderly, a phenomenon otherwise known as "biological immortality"? In Ageless, Andrew Steele, research fellow at Britain's new and largest biomedical laboratory, the Francis Crick Institute, shows us that the answer lies at the cellular level. He takes us on a journey through the laboratories where scientists are studying every aspect of the cell--DNA, mitochondria, stem cells, our immune systems, even age genes that can lead to a tenfold increase in life span (in worms, anyway)--all in an effort to forestall or reverse the body's (currently!) inevitable decline. With clear writing and intellectual passion, Steele shines a spotlight on a revolution already under way and offers reality-based hope.--- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/pbliving/messageSupport this podcast: https://anchor.fm/pbliving/support
