New podcast 'The Ripple Effect' goes beyond good intentions

PRESS RELEASE — January 10, 2018 · Updated January 21, 2018

Melbourne VIC, Australia - Ever heard what a not for profit or social enterprise does and not care? Wondered how is what they’re doing changing the world? What does it have to do with me?

Doc, a 10-year veteran of the social good sector, is the host of a new podcast that unites narrative and insight to tell the sector’s stories like never before. The 30-minute-ish podcast launches Valentine’s Day 2018.

The Ripple Effect, a podcast about the social good sector, links listeners with not for profits and social enterprises, as it reveals the human side driving these businesses, uncover bias that influence our choices, and point out imperceptible forces shaping our lives. It is geared toward a general audience, 25 years and older.

Each episode unfolds an interesting story as it makes not for profits and social enterprises relatable. Interviewees from early episodes include Rebecca Scott, CEO of STREAT, a Melbourne-based hospitality social enterprise; Tom Dawkins, CEO of Sydney-based crowd funding platform startsomegood; and Paul Ronalds, CEO of Save the Children Australia.

Also recurring segments include “The World’s A Lot Nicer than You Think,” where listeners talk about good things they’ve seen, and “Stopwatch Kindness,” a rapid fire list of how listeners can help the sector.

Ripple Effect host Doc says, “One of the most powerful things you can do is act out of charity. And what I do on my show is meet face-to-face with women and men who lead social good organisations. Then have a chat with them as to how their businesses make our lives better. Listeners so far have told us the show gives them a surprising perspective of the organisations, and have found our show amazing.”

Wave 1 of the Ripple Effect is a six-episode series released bi-weekly. Listeners can subscribe at Podbean, Apple iTunes, and Google Play.
