    Episode 518: Charles Annenberg Weingarten on Seeing the World Through Explore.Org

    Episode 518: Charles Annenberg Weingarten on Seeing the World Through Explore.Org

    This week Jasmin interviews Charles Annenberg Weingarten about his website Explore.org and all the amazing animals around the world that you can see at any time via their network of live streaming cameras. He tells us how his journey to creating this incredible site started, and why getting to view nature and animals all over the world at any time can make such a huge impact on the way we treat and perceive of animals.

    You can view explore.org’s incredible new Farm Sanctuary streaming camera by clicking this link.

    Charles Annenberg Weingarten is the Vice President and Director of the Annenberg Foundation and founder of explore.org, a philanthropic multi-media organization. He holds a Master’s degree from USC’s School of Cinema-Television and a Bachelor of Arts degree from Duke University.

    Charles started explore.org with a library of films and photography from around the world and now features over 250 documentary films, thousands of photographs, and the original Emmy Award-winning opera Fallujah: Art, Healing, and PTSD. After the eco-nomic crisis of 2008 Charles put all of his energy into traveling the United States with his golden retriever Lucky, bringing to life stories of the country’s unsung heroes through a series of documentaries. From Arizona and Mississippi, to Idaho, Virginia, Detroit, and beyond, Lucky’s journey, from his humble beginnings at the pound to his visit to the White House, quickly became historic.

    Charles encourages everyone to visit explore.org and welcomes you to the family. If you love dogs, animals, and nature, explore.org is your home.

    In the intro to the show, Jasmin and Mariann talk about Mariann’s eye surgery, the recent classes they taught together at Main Street Vegan Academy, Jasmin’s encounter with a teenage hero, and Little Shop of Horrors. Later in the episode, Mariann brings us Rising Anxieties!
