Good episode? Give it some love!
Hot Future talks with Eden Vardy of the 2Forks Club in Aspen, Colorado. The club uses member donations to make zero-interest loans to local farmers and food producers, based on the principles developed by Woody Tasch in Inquiries Into the Nature of Slow Money. Eden likes to call it "venture philanthropy." And of course we talk about inspiration and optimism in the face of climate change.
