Episode #81 of The Impactors Podcast features #SocialImpactor Dr. Jeff Spiess, author of Dying with Ease: A Compassionate Guide for Making Wiser End-of-Life Decisions.  Jeff has spent his medical career with people facing serious illness and death, first as an oncologist, then as a hospice physician. He has lectured extensively and has been recognized as a leader in the field of end-of-life care. He has observed, through extensive clinical experience and innumerable conversations with the dying and those caring for and about them, the burden of unnecessary or avoidable suffering and distress engendered by the American tendency to avoid facing death as an inevitable personal reality. His medical practice and writing are informed by his interest in philosophy and theology, and he finds additional insights in depictions of dying in literature, including sacred texts, music, and popular culture. His writing provides information and inspiration, challenging readers to honestly encounter their own mortality to both die better and live more fully. Jeff explores our options and considers the possibilities that can impact our final days, By avoiding the topic of death, we increase the pain and grief we experience at the end of life, and impact the suffering of those we leave behind. Jeff argues that if we honestly face our mortality, we will make wiser decisions, die with less distress, and live the remainder of our lives, whether days or decades, more fully and with less anxiety. Using cultural and religious references alongside poignant narratives, this optimistic work informs, inspires, and challenges our cognitive and emotional understandings of our own lives and deaths. Dying with Ease contains the practical nuts and bolts information about advance care planning, hospice, palliative care, and ethical and legal issues surrounding dying. Dr. Spiess answers such questions as: How can I plan for the last part of my life? What options do I have if my suffering is unbearable? What do religion and spiritual philosophy have to say about dying? What does it feel like to die? COVID-19 has made many of us more aware of our own mortality. By putting the fear of our final days to rest, we can make wiser and more authentic decisions throughout the rest of our lives—however long they may be. Death may be inevitable, but fearing the end-of-life is avoidable.

Episode #79 of Season 2 of The Social Impactors Podcast features #SocialImpactor Jeff Harry, an international speaker and a recognized Top 100 leader in Human Resources. Jeff shows individuals and companies how to tap into their true selves, to feel their happiest and most fulfilled — all by playing. Jeff has worked with Google, Microsoft, Southwest Airlines, Adobe, the NFL, Amazon, and Facebook, helping their staff to infuse more play into the day-to-day. Jeff is an international speaker who has presented at conferences such as INBOUND, SXSW, and Australia’s Pausefest, showing audiences how major issues in the workplace can be solved using play.  Jeff was selected by BambooHR & Engagedly as one of the Top 100 HR Influencers of 2020 for his organizational development work around dealing with toxic people in the workplace. His play work has most recently been featured in the NY Times article: How Do We Add More Play To Our Grown-Up Life - Even Now. He has also been featured on AJ+, SoulPancake, the SF Chronicle, and CNN. While we spend most of our time pretending to be important, serious grownups, it's when we let go of that facade and just play, that the real magic happens. Fully embracing your own nerdy genius — whatever that is — gives you the power to make a difference and change lives.  Jeff believes that we already have many of the answers we seek, and by simply unleashing our inner child, we can find our purpose and, in turn, help to create a better world.

Episode #67 of Season 2 of The Social Impactors Podcast features #SocialImpactor John Perkins, Chief Economist, New York Times Bestselling Author and an advocate for the Life Economy. In his newest book Touching the Jaguar, Perkins tells the dramatic story of how, when he was a Peace Corps volunteer, his life was saved by an Amazonian shaman who taught him to “touch the jaguar,” to change his reality by embracing perceptions that transformed fears into positive actions. Despite that experience, Perkins fell back on what business school had encouraged him to do. He became an economic hit man, convincing developing countries to build huge infrastructure projects that put them in debt to the World Bank and other US-controlled institutions. Although he had been taught this was the best model for economic development, Perkins came to see that this was simply a new form of colonialism. John and I delve deep on what it means to touch the jaguar, why he stepped away from being an Economic Hitman, and what it means to build a regenerative and Life Economy.

We set the scene during out interview together: plastic waste is understood to contribute to species extinction, ecological devastation, climate change, and human health problems. But despite holding the dubious distinction of being the world's biggest plastic polluter, Coca Cola and other industry giants are actively sabotaging efforts to curb plastic waste. Raz gives his powerful answers to these questions: 1. Raz, how would you say your experience has been fighting (and winning) the good fight against industry interests bent on protecting their profits at all costs? 2. Businesses are big, hard to change, how do they build a new mission or lead a new juxtaposing industry? 3. As David, in this example, how are you building your business and staying true to your mission? 4. What advice would you give to people listening today, to start making their own impact in the world?
