Guest: Brett Herbst, Owner and Founder of The MAiZE, Founder of Cornbelly’s Corn Maze, Lehi, UT Every Halloween, tens of thousands of people across the country drive to a corn field and buy a ticket to get lost in a maze carved through the tall stalks. Corn mazes are relatively new as a cultural phenomenon, and in some cases, an important revenue source for farmers.  The New York Times dubbed Brett Herbst “King of the American corn maze industry.”  For 20 years, he’s been designing and building corn mazes. He now consults with farmers around the world on more than 200 corn mazes a year. His company is called The MAiZE (that’s M-A-I-Z-E, as in corn).  Click here to find a corn maze near you.

SpaceX's Obstacles in the Pursuit of Life on Mars

Guest: Andrew Maynard, PhD, Professor of Future of Innovation in Society, Director of the Risk Innovation Lab, Arizona State University NASA aims to send humans to Mars in about 15 years. Elon Musk – of Tesla Motors and SpaceX – plans to do it in seven years. And not just for a visit. His vision is a self-sustaining city on Mars where people can live, work and visit. The technical and financial challenges are immense, but Musk has already done a lot in space travel that NASA hasn’t been able to do. For example, SpaceX can launch a rocket into orbit, then bring it down to earth, land it upright and use it again. If anyone can built a city on Mars, I think it’ll be Elon Musk. But it won’t be without challenges.
