Ep2: Power Dynamics

Saving Polar Bears, Laser Weapons, and a Looming Battle between Global Superpowers.


In this week’s episode, we dive into batteries: that invisible technology we all take for granted. More than simply recharging your devices, batteries are reshaping entire industries including travel, entertainment, weapons, and more.

  • Personal: How have batteries influenced our social behavior? Do you suffer from “low battery anxiety?” I’ll share a few ways batteries have influenced our culture and even our language.
  • Industry: From renewable energy to entertainment, batteries are creating exciting new opportunities. I’ll look at a few markets that are set to rake in billions of dollars in annual revenues.
  • Global: Are we heading towards a global arms race for battery technology? I’ll show you two big moves that China has made in the last two years that’s setting the stage for competition.

Oh, and we’ll also tackle the emergence of laser weapons!
