Refreshing to hear speakers who don’t scapegoat!

By BeeGalindo - May 15 2020

mostly these speakers positively relate their own, individual experience and ideas, and theres very little bashing. I listened to the former award winning and championship winning coach talk about the rewards from realizing coaching to win has a high cost, coaching to live does wonders for you and your players, and the funny thing is you still win a lot but really enjoy it! I think her message applies to MOST of our world right now: how far do we go to win? How did we come to celebrate ethically or morally vacant people? Would we really not win if we were all a bit more tolerant, patient, or kind? I mean, those two cliches are still true: no one gets outta here alive, and you can’t take anything with you! Might as well prioritize enjoying life!

Rank #6: The US is addicted to incarceration. Here's how to break the cycle | Robin Steinberg and Manoush Zomorodi

Podcast cover
Read more
Nearly half a million people in the US are in jail right now without being convicted of a crime, simply because they can't come up with the money to pay cash bail.

In conversation with TED Radio Hour host Manoush Zomorodi, Steinberg shares how her nonprofit The Bail Project -- which uses a revolving fund to post bail for those who can't afford it -- is scaling up their efforts across the country and rolling out a new community-based model to fight mass incarceration. (This ambitious plan is part of the Audacious Project, TED's initiative to inspire and fund global change.)
