Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) is one of two national laboratories in the US. These national labs are tasked with the critical mission of developing the research, technologies, and technical infrastructure necessary to create new technology.

LLNL is hard at work protecting Americans and everyone from existential threats – whether its pandemics, climate change, challenges with genomics, safeguarding nuclear weapons, new space telescopes, supercomputers, or defense tech, the labs leads the way. And at the helm of it all is Director Bill Goldstein.

Bill has been at the helm for over six years and is overseeing some of the world’s most incredible projects. Chad and Bill talk about those today, including how he got his start at the lab and rose to become its director. Today, you will hear many stories from Bill as he gives us a behind-the-scenes look at one of the most amazing places in the world, LLNL.
