What happens when you get America's leading minds in a room to talk about the major threats of the 21st century -- terrorism, nuclear proliferation, pandemics, energy shortages, etc? Well, frankly you get a little scared ... and a bit more aware of the complexities of our globalized world.
Stanford University recently hosted a roundtable led by Ted Koppel, which brought together Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy, former Secretary of State George Schultz, former Secretary of Defense William Perry, Yahoo co-Founder Jerry Yang, and Stanford President John Hennessy, among others. The event, entitled "Anxious Times Seeing Beyond a World of Perpetual Threats," is now available for free as a podcast in both audio and video. It's perhaps one of the more educational podcasts that you'll come by.
