This week’s guests probably don’t need an introduction, but just in case: we’re joined by Jeremy Jones and Travis Rice, two snowboarding legends who have turned their careers towards activism.
Season Two – Episode 11: From Disability Representation to Inclusion with Mallory Weggeman + Jeremy Snyder
This August, Mallory Weggeman will be competing in her third Paralympic Games (Tokyo 2021). She’s currently a gold and bronze medalist, ESPN ESPY Award Winner, American and World Record holder, and 15-time World Champion.
This week, Harvard Psychology Professor, Dr. Josh Greene joins us and guest co-host Rebecca Rusch to give us a lesson in moral cognition and effective altruism. What motivates people to do good? How have the greatest impact in our charitable giving? What makes an effective non-profit? His work answers these questions and more. He also talk about his latest project, The Giving Multiplier, which helps us make wiser, more impactful donations.
Those who tune in to Cory’s #mentalhealthmonday series are familiar with his mental illness journey– which includes diagnoses of Bipolar Disorder, alcoholism, and PTSD. In honor of mental health awareness month, he and Terry record a session with his psychologist, Laurel Sole’, who helps us define trauma, understand its sources, and move towards wellness.
“Once you have 10% of the population activated… the truth is really hard to stop,” says Louie Psihoyos, renowned photographer, Oscar-winning filmmaker (The Cove), and ocean conservationist on the impact of activism through storytelling. He joins Terry and Cory to talk about his unique career– which combines documentary filmmaking, activism, and espionage; what’s at stake with our poor treatment of underwater life; and the connection between world agriculture and COVID-19.
