The Conversations Network is a non-profit online publisher of recorded lectures, conversations and interviews that include a wealth of worldchanging topics. Its earliest channel, IT Conversations, founded by Doug Kaye in 2003, focuses on developments in technology and the innovators behind those advancements. Among other things, IT Conversations broadcast last year's inspiring SXSW keynote address by Alex Steffen and Bruce Sterling.
Now partnered with the Center for Social Innovation at the Stanford Graduate School of Business, The Conversations Network just launched a new podcasting channel dedicated to topics like corporate citizenship, philanthropy, social entrepreneurship, international development and disaster relief. Social Innovation Conversations already boasts a great collection of worldchanging interviewees and affiliates, including our own Ethan Zuckerman (part of the Globeshakers series) and Worldchanging book contributing author, David Bornstein. You can subscribe to Social Innovations Conversations on your RSS feed. Grab your portable audio player and tune in.
Ah, just wonderful! Thank you.
A significant contributor to this new channel is Timothy Zak, host of the Globeshakers series and CEO of the Social Innovation Accelerator in Pittsburgh (formerly the Pittsburgh Social Enterprise Accelerator). Tim conducts a great series of interviews, demostrating the impact that social innovation is having not only on Western Pennsylvania, but also on national and international platforms. Many of his guests have significant ties to the Pittsburgh area, helping us to develop a solid base for the field of social innovation.
