And I didn’t realize how close to depression I was when I started this thing.” (09:31) (Corinna)“I really look for people that can help me cover topics that are really near and dear to my heart, but also just that are rooted in making the world a better place and improving awareness around particular issues. Because it’s my firm belief that, as we improve awareness, we’re going to create a more just and equal world.” (18:30) (Corinna)“I really just have this simple metric I look for. And that’s just, ‘Are they making a social impact about a particular issue or are they driving something that is really focused on sustainability?’ And if either of those aren’t met, I don’t interview them.” (30:53) (Corinna)“Even if I’m only reaching a small audience, I’m reaching an audience that cares.” (43:34) (Corinna)“Having a healthy environment to live and breathe in should be the concern of everybody. These are things that should be the rights of each of us. It shouldn’t be politicized.” (54:01) (Corinna) RESOURCES MENTIONED FullCast WebsitePodcast Junkies Junkies Facebook GroupLink to Podfest Expo Virtual SummitCorinna’s LinkedInCorinna’s WebsiteCorinna’s TwitterCorinna’s FacebookCorinna’s InstagramCorinna’s EmailCorinna’s Podcast:Care More Be Better: A Social Impact + Sustainability PodcastLink to Trash to Treasure🎙️🎙️🎙️Podcast Production and Marketing provided by FullCast
