23. A Journey of Art, Entrepreneurship, and Social Impact: A Conversation with Steve Israel

Play
Read more

Today we have a conversation with Steve Israel, an artist and serial entrepreneur who joins us from Vermont. Steve is the founder of several business ventures, including a lemonade stand when he was five years old, the first microbrewery and the first distillery in Vermont, as well as the Great American Salvage Company, which he started out in his kitchen and gradually became a large company that dismantled buildings and resold their historic details. Their operations went from recycling scrap materials to high end reuse of mansions. Steve is also a sculptor and the founder of HarborArts, a not-for-profit organisation which transformed the 14-acre Boston Harbor Shipyard and Marina into an outdoor gallery, to create a stage for dialogue through public art. In the past, he has lived on a boat in Boston and spent time in Mexico where he mentored and supported young entrepreneurs to develop their businesses.

Rep. Steve Israel: Running for President in Time of Coronavirus

Play
Read more

When I first scheduled an election analysis discussion with former U.S. Representative Steve Israel, it’s fair to say that my initial set of questions had nothing to do with how to run for President in a time of Coronavirus.

That’s where this conversation begins, but not where it ends. Because while we all navigate this new reality, we’re also still trying to understand the Democratic primary: What in the world just happened? How did Joe Biden get blown out in the first three caucuses – and then turn it all around to basically run the table? And assuming Biden holds on, did the moderate wing of the Democratic Party really win the ticket – or did the progressives set the agenda and took moderates along for the ride? How unified is the party? And what about Biden’s running mate – he said he’ll choose a woman VP candidate. Ok, beyond that, what are the practical and political factors that matter?

More background on Steve Israel: He spent 16 years in Congress representing New York's 3rd Congressional District – that’s on Long Island. He’s the former Chair of DCCC and today serves as Director of Cornell University’s Institute of Politics and Global Affairs. He’s also author of two political satire books, and we talk about his most recent one that took on the gun lobby – it’s called “Big Guns,” and it’s an excellent read.

As referenced in the intro, here is a link to the special edition of The 180 Podcast on the coronavirus with Dr. Pamela Cantor, Turnaround for Children’s Founder and Senior Science Advisor, about how to address the fear, stress and disruption caused by the pandemic.
