During the conference we were able to catch up with a few of our speakers and keynotes for brief interviews before they went on stage. On Tuesday, Keynote Dr. Sarah Richardson shared her opinion with us on voting, the future of gene editing, and why beer is awesome. Later on, we spoke with Philippe & Ashlan Cousteau about how their explorations impact the world. Stay tuned to our Youtube channel as we continue to release brief interviews with speakers from SXSW Eco 2016.
