John Grant '...from Margaret Mead to Spiral Tribe to Greener Marketing'

The New Abnormal

In this reposted episode I talk with John Grant, who spent his early career at JWT and BMP-DDB, before becoming co-founder and Head of Strategy for the revolutionary St Luke's . (As you'll hear, it narrowly missed being named after...well listen and find out). John has since become a highly sought-after consultant, and somehow managed to write several excellent books along the way, inc 'The New Marketing Manifesto', 'The Green Marketing Manifesto', Co-opportunity', 'Made With', and 'Better'. He has worked with an array of leading global brands, along with various departments of the UK and Swedish Governments. He's also written a sequel to the #GreenMarketingManifesto titled #GreenerMarketing. Therefore we talk about that, #TheGreatReset...and Spiral Tribe. As you do.

Indiana Jones Meet Margaret Mead

BumpInTheRoad

It is summer, and there is never a better time for a good story. This podcast is the type of story best told over a campfire, where the your senses are heightened, your imagination keen, and your edges of the night leave you susceptible to a different reality. This is the first of a four part series. It is the remarkable story of a spiritual quest for truth by a Phd psychology student. It’s part Raiders of the Lost Ark, and part Cheryl Stayed’s Wild, all told from the perspective of a Margaret Mead. And it’s the first time this story has been told. Listen in for a summertime saga of adventure that takes us from Hawaii to Asia, to South Anerica and back with a young Phd candidate, Wendy Wagner, as she searches for timeless wisdom and answers. #BumpInTheRoad #Adventure #Spiritual #Travel

Dan 11:32 Episode 27: Margaret Mead - A Case Study in Academic Dishonesty

Dan 11:32

Margaret Mead's book "Coming of Age in Samoa" took the world by storm when it was published in 1928, and, according to Sherwood Washburn, "influenced the way people were brought up in the United States" (and throughout the western world, really). It was not until the 1980s that Mead's study was revealed as being a serious misrepresentation of the culture and character of Samoa. But by that time, the damage had already been done. In this episode, we take a look at Margaret Mead's work - a case study in academic and intellectual dishonesty.

Elesha J. Coffman, "Margaret Mead: A Twentieth-Century Faith" (Oxford UP, 2021)

New Books in Gender

Elesha J. Coffman's Margaret Mead: A Twentieth-Century Faith (Oxford UP, 2021) takes a careful look at Mead’s religious origins and influence. As a famous American anthropologist, Mead’s intellectual contributions to mid-century culture has been fruitfully studied. Coffman offers insight into a neglected aspect of Mead’s life—her religious views. Born into a home with secular agnostic parents, Mead chose a religious path as a child and joined the Episcopal Church. As an anthropologist she believed in the significance of ritual and the importance of service but rejected many of the particulars of her chosen faith. From De Pauw University to Columbia University, through multiple love affairs and marriages, travels and publications, Mead became an influential public intellectual, developing her own perspective on social ethics. Her high-profile and expansive view of human development that did not reject religion offered the opportunity to contribute to mid-twentieth century liberal Christianity on multiple fronts.Elesha J.
