How do we make sense of the ideas of the present, that might determine our lives in the future? How can we weigh the legitimacy of new technologies–and sort through what is hype, and what is not?

Well, that’s what Jon Gertner, a veteran journalist, editor, historian, and author, seems to have figured out. Jon is a contributing writer at The New York Times Magazine, and is best known for his work on science, technology, innovation, business, and society.

His journalism and reviews also appear in Wired, The New York Times Book Review, The Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal, and a number of other print and digital publications. Jon served as an editor for Fast Company, Money and The American Lawyer. Jon is a graduate of Cornell University and is on the faculty of Princeton where he teaches the McGraw Seminar on writing.

His first book, The Idea Factory: Bell Labs and the Great Age of American Innovation, was a New York Times bestseller. His latest book is The Ice at the End of the World: An Epic Journey into Greenland’s Buried Past and Our Perilous Future. We’ll be doing a deep dive on both of his books, as well as his approach to writing and journalism.

“Living a Life in Full” is the conversation you always wanted to have with that person who gave an amazing TED talk, or the author of one your favorite books, or that inspirational Olympian you always wanted to know more about.

This show is for the intellectually curious. You want to not just know more about the interesting and the innovative, but also what makes them tick, and maybe even what makes them laugh. It’s graduate-level conversations with those making a difference in the world and the lives of others.

Living a Life in Full provides durable insights and actionable knowledge, along with a dash of fun. We bring you new ideas and approaches so you can live a life in full.

The show is equal parts information and inspiration, but without the aphorisms and Pablum. We cover a wide range of topics in an engaging way—from Burning Man to The Renaissance Weekend, from the United Nations to top universities, Nobel Laureates to astronauts—we have an amazing Rolodex.

Interviewees are a who’s who of high-performance athletes, bestselling authors, high-caliber leaders, world changing humanitarians, innovative researchers, amazing start-up founders, clever life-hackers, paradigm busting thought-leaders and global innovators.
