Dr. Hamilton interviewed me on her radio show, “Enabling People To Take Initiative with Joshua Spodek.” Here are her episode notes: As much as curiosity breeds creativity, many still struggle in taking the initiative and ownership of their ideas.

The environmental revolution begins here, with the Noetic podcast with Jared Angaza

on April 16, 2019 in Audio, Leadership, Nature, Nonjudgment

I met Jared Angaza appearing on each other’s podcast a couple years ago. We became great friends at first only online.

More missing sexism when it hurts men

on August 30, 2018 in Audio, Nonjudgment

I’ve written several times on how our society seems comfortable dismissing sexism when it hurts men. Saying that because some men have power, unearned or not, therefore all men do doesn’t make it so. It means you’re seeing people by an accident of their births than for themselves. It also gets votes for populists. It also dismisses and ignores their situation—their pain, their suffering, their struggle, their triumphs, and so[…] Keep reading →

Join the 1L1P movement

on August 27, 2018 in Audio, Leadership, Nature

#1L1P Kevin Huhn contacted me because our spheres overlapped. We got to talking about acting on one’s values even when nobody is around—that is, integrity—which acting on your environmental values teaches. I shared with him my new initiative to promote picking up 1 piece of litter (or producing 1 less) per day and inviting 1 other person to join the initiative too. I shortened 1 litter 1 person to the[…] Keep reading →
