We're All in This Together | Eric & Rich | Child Safety Source (#73 -- 04/09/2020)
We're already 3 weeks into our new format and things are getting interesting! Eric and Rich had another thoughtful conversation chock full of insights about the strange times we live in. Highlights this week include:
Why are scientists so bad at communicating?
Are you wearing a mask for yourself?
Are we ever going to hake hands again?
Has your family "adjusted" to quarantine life?
How can non-profits keep afloat with so many out of work?
Plus, how Rich got the big idea that launched his foundation, and one big idea Eric came up with on the spot!
