Hacking Powerful People: Inspiration from Meryl Streep
Meryl Streep, the three-time Oscar-winning actress, condemned the actions of a man she chose not to name and who shall remain nameless here on the Hack Learning Podcast.
During her acceptance of the Cecil B. DeMille Lifetime Achievement award at the Golden Globes, Streep stood as tall as ever, as she set her sights on the most powerful man in the world and fired back like no on has since the 2016 presidential election.
Hack Learning Podcast host Mark Barnes discusses Streep's viral speech and supports her plea for people to speak up and fight back against leaders who abuse their power by bullying people who are powerless to fight back.
Mark shares a 3-pronged approach to standing up and speaking out, while teaching kids that bullying is wrong, no matter how powerful the bully may be -- even a bully who resides at the White House.
