What is the Science of Social Impact?
A podcast designed to educate and inspire you to make social impact a key ingredient in your life.
Who’s it for? A business professional looking to bring social impact into their office, an entrepreneur wanting to start a social impact business, or just someone who loves to make the world better and hear stories of others doing the same.
Why? We believe we can make the world better through social impact, and it’s our mission to share the stories, tips, and news telling you all about it.
Types of Content
We’ll be bringing social impact content to you in three different formats:
- Interviews – with the founders, CEOs and amazing people working within social impact companies, both in the for-profit and non-profit sectors.
- Deep Dives – into social impact buzzwords and topics to educate us all on the important topics with the hope to provide us with conversational knowledge of the terms.
- Roundups – pulling in the week’s most important social impact news and delivering it to you in a bite-sized format.
Welcome, welcome. You’re listening to The Science of Social Impact, a podcast from Crate of Good. We are on a mission to educate and inspire you to make social impact part of your daily life. Thanks for joining. Let’s make an impact right now.
Thank you for joining us for the premiere episode of The Science of Social Impact. On this premiere episode, we’re going to break down the goal of this podcast. We’re going to tell you who made it and who we made it for. And thirdly, we’re going to share with you the different types of formats that you can listen to on The Science of Social Impact. So I believe that we all have a lane and society is pushing us more and more to stay in our own lane, to do our own thing, to worry about ourselves. I believe we have a duty, we have a responsibility to get out of our lane and help other people with their journey. And one of the best ways that we can do that is through social impact. So the goal of this podcast is to educate and inspire you to make social impact. A daily part of your life.
We are the folks from Crate of Good. We run a social impact subscription box company and we’ve also been working in charities since 2012. I myself am the executive director of a charity that services kids in the hospital. We love social impact and we made this podcast for those of you that also love to make the world a better place. This podcast is for the business professional looking to bring social impact into their office or workplace. This is for the social entrepreneur looking to start a social impact company but might not know the tools or the steps to take to make it happen and this podcast is for someone who just loves to make the world a better place and loves to hear stories of other people doing the same. Along the way here we’re going to bring you three different types of content on The Science of Social Impact.
The first one is going to be Interviews. We’re going to tell the stories and experiences of people who have walked the walk. They are founders, their CEOs, their team members in social impact companies. Some of these stories are absolutely incredible. We’ll be talking to founders of anti-bullying programming charities who themselves were bullied as a kid and now have gone on to make a real change in that space. We’ll talk to the founder of a social impact candle company who sold everything that she had and lived out of her van for a year to sell her candles and get her business up and running. Some of these stories are incredible and we cannot wait to share the missteps, the trials, the tribulations, the failures, and the successes of all of these amazing social impact entrepreneurs.
Secondly, we’re going to bring you Deep Dives. So there’s a lot of buzzwords and jargon in the social impact space. And I’ll fully admit, when I first entered this space, I didn’t know what a lot of them meant, you know, I would be talking to someone and they might mention social impact bonds and I’d say, yeah, Oh yeah, no, I think social impact bonds are great, and that was about all I could contribute to the conversation until I went home and studied every link I could find on Google. So we’re going to do Deep Dives on some of these key buzzwords, topics and jargon in the social impact space.
And our third form of content is going to be a Social Impact Roundup. We’re going to bring you the social impact headlines from the news around the world for that week. These are going to be notable publications like the New York Times or Entrepreneur.com. Places that are talking about social impact, we’re gonna bring those headlines and soundbites right to you every single week.
We are so excited to bring you this podcast. We think even though the world has a ton of problems and we can all agree that there’s a ton of problems, they’re infinitely more solutions to those problems and you know what? They’re all out there in the minds of you and your friends and everyone else, all the solutions, all the ideas that can help make this planet better are in your mind and they’re wanting to get out and they’re wanting to find purpose and they’re just needing to get started. The good thing is that people are already out there doing it. There are people working in social impact companies. They have started these companies, they have worked in these companies, and we can learn from their missions and from their work. And there’s also people who just have that idea or they have that passion and they don’t know what to do. We’re all on this journey together and we’re now all so much more aware that it is the time to help others and to help this planet, but it will only happen if we act. This is the science of social impact. Let’s make it happen.
Thanks so much for being with us on this episode of The Science of Social Impact, a podcast from Crate of Good. Let’s go out there and make the world a better and brighter place. I’ll see you when I’m looking at ya.
