You may know Adrian as the star of Entourage and The Devil Wears Prada, but he also has a lengthy history as a documentarian and entrepreneur who’s made a lifelong habit out of going around, over and through the various gatekeepers that stood between him and his goals. You’ll hear a lot of familiar themes come up in this conversation that are very core to me: the critical importance of building a community of peers who will motivate, inspire and help each other; how mentorship can be a catalyst for progress; and the drive for continuous and never-ending self-education.
Today on the podcast, * Why Adrian is a passionate learner, yet dropped out of college when he found that the traditional educational system wasn’t actually educating him * We get into his history as a documentarian - for example, how he got the call for Entourage while trying to sneak into Cuba to make a documentary * How creativity can play a vital role in driving social change. Our special guest Dune Ives of The Lonely Whale Foundation talks about how engaging the sense with visuals, music and rich experiences is the key to unlocking empathy - and once unlocked, that empathy is a powerful force for change
