    Season 2 Ep 3: "Being Bold" - Ashley Gazich and the C19 Coalition

    Season 2 Ep 3: "Being Bold" - Ashley Gazich and the C19 Coalition

    When Ashley Gazich relocated to San Diego from Florida in the fall of 2019 for a sabbatical from Microsoft, a global pandemic was not the first thing on her mind. Just a few months later, she found herself aligned with the author of The Lean Startup and a coalition of the willing, who set out to increase the national supply of PPE, provide bridge financing for hospitals, and increase the availability of information through intelligence sharing. 
    This is the story of how Ashley forged meaningful partnerships across every layer of government, and between officials and industry partners who were willing to think boldly about how they might help... resulting in the successful delivery of over 1 billion units of PPE.

    Season 2 Episode 2: Becoming a "Better Giver," With Richard Sokolow

    Season 2 Episode 2: Becoming a "Better Giver," With Richard Sokolow

    As the COVID-19 pandemic spread across the country this past Spring, Rich Sokolow sprang into action. As Managing Director and the Director of Research at Davidson Kempner Capital Management L.P., an independent global investment management firm, Sokolow knows people. And as a founding member and longtime Chair of the "All Stars" Board of Directors - a national leader in the field of Afterschool Development - Rich knows that "when asked to help, people say yes."
    This is an inspiring story of how a private citizen acquired PPE, convened people together, and made things happen in the tumultuous early days of the pandemic. It's also a reminder that we are all capable of much more than we think.

Very refreshing take

I really appreciate the focus of this podcast - highlighting the important and often unrecognized work of public servants on behalf of our country as a WHOLE in a time when it seems like people left and right (pun intended!) are rushing to politicize everything.
