The Health and Healing Episode: Medshare, Shoe4Africa and You Can Thrive
June 9, 2019, Bill Quinn There's a new episode with excellent interviews that needs attention, stat! This time we'll hear from three organizations in the field of medicine including Medshare which redirects medical surplus from landfills to developing healthcare systems, Shoe4Africa which built a children's hospital in Africa and You Can Thrive which holistically supports women as they deal with a cancer diagnosis and treatment. Snapping on their rubber gloves and buckling their head mirrors alongside of me are two caring and thoughtful medical professionals. I'm joined by nurse Melissa (who gives us the latest on her organization Purses for Nurses) and the newly-minted Dr. Brandon Alexander! Be sure to RSVP (Facebook) for our BYOB networking picnic on June 19th!

The Writing Episode: 826NYC, Library of America and Walking in Other People's Shoes
This episode, my friend Preya Singh and I look at the art of writing through the lens of three very different interviews. We start with the benefits of creative chaos orchestrated by 826NYC and the Brooklyn Superhero Supply Co. We then hear how the Library of America is preserving and sharing the American experience. And we finish with Walking in Other People's Shoes which is building a community of women sharing inspiring stories of struggle, perseverance and triumph. I want to thank all my guests for being generous with their time including Ellie Windham, Joshua Mandelbaum and Max Rudin. I was also excited to work with Yaniza and incorporate her music throughout the episode. The Centre for Social Innovation continues to be a very valuable resource. And I'm happy I was able to reconnect with my thoughtful friend, my cohost, Preya! Yaniza: http://www.yanizadore.com/music

The Advice Episode:
Happy Giving Tuesday! Since starting Nonprofit Tangent, I've ended almost every interview with a simple question: What have you learned? This episode we get to hear those answers. So Instead of stories, I present the collected wisdom from (most of) the volunteers, founders, executive directors, and others I have spoken with over the past year and a half. To help me sort through the excellent and diverse advice is Elizabeth David Dembrowsky, herself a founder of Good Counsel Services which provides organizational and legal guidance to nonprofit organizations, as well as Executive Director of Keren Or which helps blind children in Jerusalem. The pearls of wisdom will come at you very fast this episode so I've assembled this quick listeners guide to help you keep track of who might be talking at any one time.

The Foodie Episode: One Sandwich at a Time, La Nacional and The Impact Network
This episode I present a tasty three course meal of a podcast with organizations that span the spectrum of food's role in our lives from basic sustenance to cultural ambassador to bringing community together. We start with One Sandwhich at a Time's Erin Dinan who explains how half a sandwich spawned an army of sandwich makers across New York that feed the homeless. Then Robert Sanfiz of La Nacional relays the enduring power of the 150 year old Spanish Benevolent Society supporting Spanish speaking immigrants and its beautiful, newly restored restaurant. Finally we end hearing from Katie Kerr of the Impact Network. She is putting together an all-star team of NYC chefs for Chefs for Impact, a yearly event which raises money for their mission of bringing an excellent, technology-driven education to rural Zambia. And I have good friend JP King along to help me tie it all of into a neat bow! First I would like to thank Building Beats and DJ BSNYEA for providing the soundtrack for this episode. I have many other thanks including Aline for connecting me with Erin, for Reshma for connecting me with Katie and for JP helping me put it all together!
