In the shift away from fossil fuels, how do countries make sure not to widen inequalities in the process? In part three of our series Climate fight: the world's biggest negotiations, we travel to the Cumbrian town of Whitehaven on England's north-west coast that could soon host the UK's first deep coal mine in more than three decades. We talk to local people for and against the mine, as well as experts in the concept of a just transition, to explore how regions like west Cumbria that have suffered from decades of deindustrialisation can thrive in the shift to a low-carbon economy. Featuring Rebecca Ford, senior lecturer in politics at the University of Strathclyde, Rebecca Willis, professor in Practice at the Lancaster Environment Centre at Lancaster University and Kieran Harrahill, PhD candidate in bioeconomy at University College Dublin.The Climate Fight podcast series is produced by Tiffany Cassidy.

Despite countless billions of dollars spent, and decades of effort, healthcare still lags behind other industries when it comes to successfully using digital technologies to interact with its customers — the patients. The ongoing challenges created by the COVID-19 pandemic have resulted in rapid advances in digital health solutions and telehealth. The pharmaceutical industry essentially performed a miracle in delivering several effective new drugs in just months. Bradford Lee, VP of Life Sciences at Lifelink Systems, sat down with Greg Kefer to share some of the developments he's been part of in his role working with top innovation executives across all segments of the pharmaceutical industry. The combination of big organizations, legacy processes, and heavy regulation have historically held back rapid innovation and Silicon Valley thinking, but that may be changing. Mature technology that's mobile and conversational is lowering the friction barrier for patients and trial participants. Healthcare providers are showcasing their digital transformation successes, paving the path for the entire industry. We are also seeing the traditional internal barriers for digital transformation come down as life science companies begin to look for ways to deploy simple, effective solutions quickly to get wins on the board and begin to generate the kinds of results needed for wide-scale innovation. Healthcare may be on the cusp of finally catching up to the other consumer industries that the leaders keep saying they want to emulate.

It's common for someone to see a jar of NuttZo for the first time and wonder, ‘Why is it upside down?' The majority of the brand's nut- and seed-based butters are packaged such that the twist cap is at the base of the jar, allowing for the ingredients' natural oils to rise to the top and make it easier for consumers to stir and blend before use. The unique design is essential for attracting awareness and gaining trial, but as NuttZo founder and CEO Danielle LiVolsi explained in an interview featured in this episode, winning customer loyalty and a policy of no regrets have been the keys to her brand's success. Founded in 2008, NuttZo, which markets all-natural snack bars in addition to its butters, has become a nationally recognized brand available in over 10,000 grocery stores including Walmart and Costco. A former radio sales executive, Danielle bootstrapped the company's launch and development and has emphasized steady growth and a focus on consumer demand for high quality ingredients and customer service. A mother to two adopted sons who are the inspiration for the brand, Danielle also leads NuttZo's sister nonprofit, Project Left Behind, for which a portion of all sales support orphaned and underserved children around the world. As part of our conversation, LiVolsi recounted the creation of NuttZo and the creative ways that she won the brand's first retail buyers, why she adheres to the Nordstrom model of customer service, the reason she has turned down offers to invest in the company and why she fears regret more than she does failure. Also featured in this episode is an interview with Kun Yang, the co-founder and CEO of Pricklee. Co-founded by a team of pharmacists and launched in 2017, Pricklee markets beverages made from prickly pear juice and is described as “cactus water.” Yang recalled Pricklee's backstory, how his team is leveraging consumer awareness about coconut water to build the brand, the impact of localized social marketing and what he described as the keys to learning the ropes of the beverage business and adapting quickly. Show notes: 0:45: Interview: Danielle LiVolsi, Founder & CEO, NuttZo -- LiVolsi and Taste Radio editor Ray Latif kicked off their conversation with a discussion about a helpful Facebook Group called #OMGCPG, how global supply chain issues affected the launch of a new product, why getting massages are great for ideation and how she de-stresses and avoids burnout. She also recalled early challenges in product development, how she landed meetings with a Whole Foods buyer and the founder of natural grocery chain Jimbo's, why she's adamant about not accepting outside investment unless it's a ‘perfect fit' and why she tapped her mother to manage phone-based customer service for the company. Later, she explained why she is still regularly involved in sales meetings and why she believes that despite missteps in building Nuttzo, she wouldn't do anything differently. 44:48: Interview: Kun Yang, Co-Founder and CEO, Pricklee -- Latif sat down with Yang for a conversation with Yang recorded at Natural Products Expo East 2021, where the entrepreneur discussed the inspiration for Pricklee and its diverse team of founders and how the company is using coconut water as a point of reference for new consumers while simultaneously calling for “NOMOCOCO.” He also spoke about how Pricklee is utilizing TikTok and Instagram to target consumers in specific regions of the U.S., the brand's uses of SMS-based marketing and why building a community of advisors has been critical to the company's growth. The interview also includes a brief cameo from none other than The Beverage Whisperer himself, Ken Sadowsky. Brands in this episode: NuttZo, Jif, Pricklee

In 2014, the Federal Government acknowledged that simplifying the Federal contracting space was critical to driving greater innovation, creativity, and improved performance. Efforts were launched with the goal of improving the economy and efficiency of the Federal acquisition system by increasing opportunities for businesses to participate in the Federal marketplace whereby realizing costs savings and providing the best solution for the taxpayer. Transformation and modernization didn't happen overnight. Achieving a more innovative, efficient and effective acquisition system that supports the needs of a 21st century Government takes initiative, adaptability, buy-in and the proper tools to implement an actionable plan. To that end, the Government implemented a number of policies and guidance to agencies that identified the actions necessary to address industry concerns and strengthen and improve Federal acquisition practices. In our last episode, we focused on one approach to improve efficiency and achieve greater cost savings by managing spend through category management.

In today's episode, Rusty and Robyn talk with Mike Dunlop, CEO of Intuition College Savings Solutions, LLC. Before his 25-year stint in the financial services industry, Mike served in the Royal Navy for 12 years. Out of the Navy, he took several roles in the financial services industry including financial advising and portfolio managing. Mike's current organization is at the leading edge of the prepaid and college savings industry and he continues to push education and training initiatives as CEO. Mike talks with Rusty and Robyn about the specifics of 529 plans, the student debt crisis, and the impact of investing in college. "I think we're starting to see a period that the industry has grown. It's gotten quite a decent size now that people are paying attention. Some of the big heavyweight companies in the industry are involved. Innovation is good. How do we pay for college as opposed to taking debt to pay for college? I think savings and creating the right savings vehicles are becoming more apparent.” ~ Mike Dunlop Main Takeaways With $1.6 trillion in student debt and its subsequent economic impact, the college savings plan approach is a way to help alleviate some of the current downsides of funding education. Although contributions are not deductible, earnings in a 529 plan grow federal tax-free and will not be taxed when the money is taken out for college. Some states offer tax deductions if you plan to invest. You can also take advantage of other benefits such as estate planning purposes and transferable beneficiaries. You can choose between direct-sold and advisor-sold 529 plans. The direct-sold 529 offers a cheaper, DIY approach. The advisor-sold 529 plans have access to professional advice on positioning portfolios and holistically developing the client's financial wellbeing.

Travis has a deep conversation with James Choung on our need and desire for revival. Revival has had a lot of misunderstandings grow up around it over the years. Choung and his writing mate, Ryan Pfeiffer, have sought to restore the concept of revival by defining it and providing a way forward on how we can position ourselves so that true revival can happen. Very few people are talking about true, biblical revival. Current conversations within contemporary Christianity are on deconstruction, social justice issues, vaccinations, masks, and the state of the church, but how many are talking about the need for revival? Very few. While the aforementioned subjects must be discussed, the only true hope for sustained change and reconciliation between people is a movement of the Spirit of God. Is revival even possible in our postmodern, technologically addicted, skepticism-filled world? Join Travis & James as they discuss our need for revival and how only God can truly make a sustained and lasting change. James serves as Vice President of Strategy & Innovation — overseeing evangelism, discipleship, planting, growth, missions, multiethnic initiatives, and the Creative Labs — at http://www.intervarsity.org/ (InterVarsity Christian Fellowship USA). You can learn more about him and his book, Longing for Revival, https://www.jameschoung.net/ (here)
