    Episode 150: Redux, Reuben Zielinski & Matt Hay

    Episode 150: Redux, Reuben Zielinski & Matt Hay

    We have all felt the gut-wrenching realization that our electronic device is floating in the washing machine. Founder Reuben Zielinski and Director of Audiology Sales Matt Hay share how Redux is saving our devices and revolutionizing the hearing device industry. Redux is a vacuum chamber that lowers the boiling point of water by reducing vacuum pressure and, therefore, taking out all of the moisture in your wet devices. Reuben, an owner of over 20 patents already, used his background in engineering at IBM to create Redux after his neighbor’s wife locked her phone in a front-load washer. Matt joined Redux to support its expansion beyond drying cell phones to hearing devices. He was perfect for the position because he has felt the pain of getting hearing aids wet for the last fifteen years. Tune in to learn how you can take advantage of Redux’s technology, how the technology works, and how it will help those with hearing aids save time and money and reduce moments of deafness. Drink deep of the culture that surrounds you with Reuben Zielinski and Matt Hay from Redux.

    Episode 149: NutraMaize, Evan Rocheford,

    What is orange corn? Evan Rocheford, the CEO of NutraMaize, shares his story, what orange corn is, and how it is solving vitamin deficiencies. Evan's father, Torbert Rocheford, pursued a career in agriculture to reduce world hunger. Although people were successful in lowering caloric hunger, communities began eating staple foods with lower micronutrients. Torbert and others recognized this issue and started performing biofortification on foods that people were already eating, like corn. Meanwhile, Evan, Torbert's ambitious and adventurous son, was looking to start a business. Little did he know that his years spent helping out on the farm when he was younger would pay off as he is now the CEO of NutraMaize, a consumer-focused agriculture company supporting the research and selling the products constructed from biofortification. Learn about the process for developing a nutrient-rich staple food like orange corn, about NutraMaize's go-to-market and business strategies, and how Evan, Torbert, and the NutraMaize team are delivering nutritious food people need in a culturally appropriate way. Drink deep of the culture that surrounds you with Evan Rocheford from NutraMaize.

    Episode 148: Central Indiana Community Foundation, Clayton De Fur

    Episode 148: Central Indiana Community Foundation, Clayton De Fur

    “Once you experience meaningful work, you can’t go back.” Clayton De Fur, the Sr. Community Leadership Officer at the Central Indiana Community Foundation, joins us this week to share his story and discuss the CICF’s strategy and impact. Following the advice of his career test, Clayton graduated from IU Bloomington with a master's degree in public affairs with a focus on non-profit management. Fortunately, he’s never turned back. In what he feels like is one of his dream roles, Clayton handles grant-making and non-profit relationships focused in areas including arts and culture, environment, animal welfare, food access, nutrition, and health. In this episode, we dive deep into the issue that CICF has chosen to tackle: Systemic Racism. Clayton candidly reveals how we can only fix access to opportunity if we focus on race. Once the CICF recognized this problem, they decided to change their mission to “mobilize” a “community where all individuals have equitable opportunity…” and have initiated change in Indiana. Including partnering with the Drink Culture Podcast to present the Seeing White series that helps attendees understand whiteness. Drink deep of the culture that surrounds you with Clayton De Fur from the CICF.

Amazing

I have listened to this podcast for about a week now and have listened to probably over 30 hours of content and shared with everyone I know! It’s fun, real, and positive. I’ve learned so much about my community. As someone who has checked out many local places this podcast adds depths and tells the story behind all of those spaces and I can’t wait to keep going back!

Every city should have a Drink Culture podcast

The Drink Culture podcast has helped me learn a ton about Indianapolis and the people that are making the Circle City better every day.

Any city would be lucky to have a version of the Drink Culture podcast.
