Today our guests are Antony Yousefian and Sadia Ahmed from Bx. Bx is building a two-sided marketplace that connects growers who want to store more carbon in the soil with corporates who need to offset their carbon emissions. It is farm-inspired blockchain technology, incentivising growers to change behaviours to climate-smart practices and financially rewarding them using carbon credit tokens.

Antony co-founded Bx along with Ben Bardsley and is passionate about technology that can drive a positive impact. He started his career in asset management and has worked on internationalising CICC, one of China's leading investment banking firms. He has over five years of experience working in Ag-Tech, during which he scaled the 30MHz data platform from the Netherlands to over 40 countries worldwide. 

Our other guest, Sadia is the Chief Innovation Officer at Bx. Having completed her PhD in Computational Ecology at Imperial College London, she has spent the last decade working with large corporations on innovation and developing commercial solutions in sustainability and life sciences. In her current role, she leads the Business Development activities of Bx on its journey to create climate-tech solutions and scale up internationally. Enjoy the conversation between Rob, Sadia and Antony!

The Piketon Massacre

The Piketon Massacre

The most notorious mass murder in Ohio’s history happened on the night of April 21, 2016 in rural Pike County. Four crime scenes, thirty-two gunshot wounds, eight members of the Rhoden family left dead in their homes. Two years later a local family of four, the Wagners, are arrested and charged with the crimes. As the Wagners await four back-to-back capital murder trials, the KT Studios team revisits Pike County to examine: crime-scene forensics, upcoming legal proceedings, and the ties that bind the victims and the accused. As events unfold and new crimes are uncovered, what will it mean for all involved? What will it mean for Pike County?
