In 2020, Nedd made headlines when he ran 50 marathons in 50 days to raise money for the Red Cross' efforts to tackle homelessness around Australia. That incredible feat clearly didn't satisfy Ned as he's gearing up for an even bigger challenge where he plans to break a world-record 3800km over 43 days that will see him run just shy of 100km every day, for some 43 days. To drive the point home, it's the equivalent of two marathons a day. I'll leave it to Ned to tell you what motivates him to accomplish these unbelievable running feats. Can't thank Ned enough for joining the Dyl & Friends family and can't wait to see him smash the record. ily xxxx

Guest Marie Kochsiek | Hélène Martin Panelists Richard Littauer Show Notes Hello and welcome to a special episode of Sustain/GitHub Maintainer Month, which is a short series of podcasts where we're focusing on maintainers of open source, what they do with their experience, and how they contribute to the sustainability of their projects. Our first guest is Marie Kochsiek, who's a developer and one of the maintainers of drip, a menstrual cycle and fertility tracking app. Marie goes in depth about the drip app, challenges she has as a maintainer, and since the supreme court repealed Roe v. Wade, she shares advice on what people can do with their menstruation trackers to stay safe. Our next guest is Hélène Martin, who's the CTO of ODK, a platform for offline data collection that's used by organizations like Red Cross. We'll hear about ODK's funding model, how Hélène has transitioned their governance strategy, we learn about their funding model, and she shares advice to maintainers who want to go to a higher level with their projects in open source. Go ahead and download this episode now! Marie: [00:01:19] Marie explains the drip app and how she ended up working on this project. [00:03:21] We find out how large the community is working on drip and how many users there are. [00:05:37] Since there are a lot of period tracking apps out there, Marie fills us in on how drip is different from other things out there. [00:08:16] Marie talks about some hurdles she overcame recently with her team. [00:10:06] We learn why Marie works on open source with her free time and what she does for her main work to work on this stuff. [00:11:51] What advice does Marie wish people would have given her when she first started out coding to make it easier. [00:13:28] Find out where you can contribute to her project. [00:16:00] With Roe v. Wade being overturned, Marie shares advice what people should do with their menstruation trackers. Hélène: [00:21:26] Hélène tells us what ODK is and how many users it has. [00:23:40 ] We learn how Hélène views herself as a maintainer of that ODK's software and what it means for her. [00:24:42] In the past one and a half years Hélène transitioned her governance strategy, so she expands on what she transitioned to and why. [00:27:51] Richard wonders if Hélène's source code has ever been forked, cloned, or if anyone has ever made their own company out of it. [00:29:38 ] We hear about ODK's funding model and where they get their money to keep the work going. [00:30:13] Since we've heard the direction Hélène has taken with governance, Richard wonders how she has led that change as a CTO. Also, she tells us if she's still getting into the weeds and writing commits. [00:34:47] Hélène shares advice for maintainers who are realizing they need to go to a higher level of abstraction to grow the projects they're in. [00:37:33 ] If you want to read along and join the ODK community, find out where you can go to get involved, and where you can follow Hélène on the web. Quotes Marie: [00:08:35] “The best work we achieve is when we work on stuff collectively.” [00:10:53] “Open source work is also community work.” [00:12:03] “Things can take time.” Hélène: [00:28:16 ] “We think the pie is big enough.” [00:31:23] “I think it's hard to jump between levels of abstraction.” [00:33:08 ] “I really think there are modes, and any given project can switch between them over time.” [00:34:48 ] “It's really important to realize that there's no one way to do open source.” [00:36:16] “A lot of times when people talk about open source, I think they mean the source is open AND.” Links SustainOSS (https://sustainoss.org/) SustainOSS Twitter (https://twitter.com/SustainOSS?ref_src=twsrc%5Egoogle%7Ctwcamp%5Eserp%7Ctwgr%5Eauthor) SustainOSS Discourse (https://discourse.sustainoss.org/) Sustain Podcast Invite Details (https://podcast.sustainoss.org/invite) podcast@sustainoss.org (mailto:podcast@sustainoss.org) Richard Littauer Twitter (https://twitter.com/richlitt?ref_src=twsrc%5Egoogle%7Ctwcamp%5Eserp%7Ctwgr%5Eauthor) Marie Kochsiek Twitter (https://twitter.com/bl00dymarie) drip (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.drip&hl=en_US&gl=US) drip, the open-source cycle tracking app-GitHub (https://github.com/jfr3000/drip) drip-GitLab (https://gitlab.com/bloodyhealth/drip) Hélène Martin Twitter (https://twitter.com/purplespatula?lang=en) Hélène Martin GitHub (https://github.com/lognaturel) ODK Twitter (https://twitter.com/getodk?lang=en) ODK (https://getodk.org/) Credits Produced by Richard Littauer (https://www.burntfen.com/)] Edited by Paul M.

We hear the stories of some of these women, and connect with scholars on how women's roles in Vietnam reflected the gender norms of the era. Later in the Show: The war upended the lives of millions of women at home, some of whom turned to activism in an effort to bring their husbands home.

On June 6, 1944, Allied Forces launched the largest amphibious assault in history against Nazi-occupied Europe. In this episode, Rip Bounds of Hattiesburg describes piloting a Utility Landing Ship to the beaches of Normandy. As Allied Forces landed on the beaches of Normandy, they faced devastating fire-power from the Germans. Bounds recalls how the eighty-eight millimeter artillery shells decimated both men and equipment. Thousands of American soldiers were wounded or killed as they stormed the beaches on D-Day 1944. Bounds remembers how they bravely worked to save wounded troops from the rising tide. In the weeks that followed D-Day, Bounds and his crew ferried wounded soldiers to awaiting hospital ships for treatment. He recounts how Red Cross workers attempted to give aid and comfort to these men as they lay on the deck of his ship. WARNING: CONTAINS GRAPHIC DESCRIPTIONS OF WAR AND CARNAGE. PHOTO: USA Today

Today the Sri Lankan prime minister, Ranil Wickremesinghe, said the country's economy has completely collapsed and needs international support. Addressing parliament, he said a donor conference would be convened to seek financial assistance from China, Japan and India. Dhananath Fernando is the Chief Operating Officer at the independent policy think tank the Advocata Institute in Colombo. He tells us what might have prompted the prime minister to conclude that an economic collapse had been reached. It's estimated that as many as one thousand people have died in an earthquake in Afghanistan and another 1500 people have been injured. The Taliban has called on aid agencies to help reach the worst-affected areas but so far few have been able to reach those in need.

First responders are the unsung heroes of any disaster. They are the ones who rush into danger while everyone else is rushing out. They are the ones who risk their lives to save others and also the ones who see the horror and devastation up close and personal. For disaster specialists, the events of September 11 were unlike anything they had ever dealt with before. The scale of the disaster was massive and the emotional toll was immense. For many, the 9/11 terrorist attack was a day of tragedy and heartbreak. But for some, it was a day of courage and heroism.In this episode, Jim and Dan are joined by Stacey Goodman. Stacey was a female police officer with federal disaster training who was pulled out of the suburbs of Long Island and thrust into the heart of the 9/11 mayhem of the World Trade Center devastation. She worked at the very center of the rescue and recovery efforts on the Pile for 23 days. Stacey witnessed firsthand the horrific details of the terror attacks that decimated the world's financial center. Her book, The Dust Never Settles, is a firsthand account of her experience at Ground Zero and the aftermath she faces along with thousands of other survivors.Stacey shares with Jim and Dan how she got involved as a disaster specialist during the 9/11 terrorist attack, what it is like to work on the Pile, and how she is still fighting for her medical benefits.In This Episode01:11 - Backstory of Stacey Goodman04:39 - The story of how Stacey was called upon to respond to the TWA Flight 800 tragedy11:32 - What it's like to identify the bodies of dead people15:41 - What the Disaster Mortuary Operational Response Team (DMORT) does20:56 - Where were Dan and Jim during the 9/11 attacks24:25 - How Stacey was spending her day on the day of the attack35:33 - What Stacey's role was at the Pile48:00 - Why Stacey isn't in the police yet55:59 - What Stacey has to say about people who believe 9/11 is a conspiracy59:44 - The tale of Smithtown1:02:47 - An overview of Stacey Goodman's book, The Dust Never SettleFavorite Quotes05:33 - "So, when TWA Flight 800 happened, my lieutenant knew that I had worked for the Red Cross and he immediately said, all right you're going to work in the medical examiner's office because you trained for plane disasters." - Stacey Goodman21:39 - "And all of a sudden it starts coming in and we all start chattering and we're listening to it through basically Howard Stern talking about it.

Devin: What do you see as your superpower, your stand-out skill that allows you to be effective at the great work that you’re doing?Naomi: I think my superpower is that ability to bring lots of people with lots of ideas and get them together so we can drive greater impact.Salesforce, the enterprise CRM giant, has launched a $100 million “Ecosystem Restoration and Climate Justice” fund. Naomi Morenzoni, the company’s senior vice president of philanthropy, joined me to discuss it. (Disclosure: I own a few shares of Salesforce.)Climate JusticeThe idea of climate justice is still emerging as a theme at the intersection of social justice and climate change solutions.“When we think about climate justice, we think about those who are hit first and frankly worst by the impacts of climate,” Naomi says. “And it’s those in our communities who are often furthest from success, who are having the greatest impact in these moments.”Her comments cause me to think of friends and colleagues living in Bangladesh, where 50 million low-income people live in areas that sea level may permanently flood before the end of the century.Naomi provides further context: If we want that healthy, prosperous society, we have to have an inclusive society. But at the foundation, we have to have a healthy planet. We have to make sure that our world, frankly, is not on fire because we're never going to be able to achieve any of those other goals that we've set out if we don't go after that first.The problem far outstrips available resources, Naomi says.“The funding that goes into this area is so small,” she says. “I think it’s something—only 2 percent of philanthropic funding goes to climate right now. If you look into community-led solutions by founders who are underrepresented, you’re looking at something like 0.6 percent. It’s abysmal.”Never miss an episode. Subscribe!Salesforce’s Ecosystem Restoration and Climate Justice FundSalesforce has made significant progress on sustainability, moving to 100 percent renewable energy. The company also sells a Net Zero Cloud that helps clients track and reduce carbon emissions. The CRM giant has already planted 43.5 million trees with a commitment to reach 100 million by 2030. The company’s environmental philanthropic efforts are the furthest thing from greenwashing.Around the world, just in recent memory, we’ve seen a measurable shift in so-called “natural” disasters. Naomi notes that what were once seasonal threats are becoming constant worries. “Over the last few years, the intensity, the velocity, the just frankly, the sort of onslaught of these climate-exacerbated disasters continued to pummel our community,” Naomi says. “When we were talking to our community partners, when we were talking to organizations like the Red Cross or Latino Community Foundation, they were saying, we need you in the climate fight.”“We have to move upstream; we have to get ahead of this as much as we can,” she adds.When Salesforce launched the new fund, it focused on three areas. Naomi enumerated them:First is just around climate and thinking about nature-based solutions, particularly what we call blue and green carbon sinks as a way to capture that carbon emission, making sure that we stay below that 1.5-degree tipping point. The second piece was around biodiversity, making sure that the systems in which these trees are being planted or restored are kept healthy as part of that strategy. The third pillar, which was important, was where this climate justice piece comes into play, is around livelihoods, making sure that we were supporting adaptation measures that were going to promote the economic climate and the climate resilience and community resilience side of this transition.Naomi shared some examples of the projects the fund is supporting with an eye toward ensuring that communities that grantors have often left out of these conversations have a seat at the table.One is our partnership with the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation. We've been supporting a project that they have in Port Arthur, and this is a community that historically has just been pummeled during hurricane season. During Hurricane Harvey, 70 percent of the houses there flooded. This is also a predominantly black community.This was a community that had been left out of a lot of these conversations, but they were feeling the impacts. So what we did with them is support a project that is a multi-stakeholder project where they're bringing the community voice into the conversation to co-develop solutions around restoration of the coastal lands. This is going to have a lot of different positive impacts. You're going to both be restoring the ecosystems so that you have that biodiversity regeneration. You're going to be creating jobs through that process and you're going to be making sure you're elevating the community voice in those solutions. The net impact really is that when that next hurricane comes through, you're going to be able to slow down the impacts of it. You're going to be building more environmental and community resilience into that system there.Naomi shared the story of another project the fund supported:Another great example organization that we're giving to is the World Resource Institute. We're supporting their land accelerator program in Brazil. This is really about training, technical assistance and mentorships for entrepreneurs who are going to be doing reforestation and restoration work on degraded lands in both Brazil and India. What I love about this project is it's really thinking about how you support livelihood, entrepreneurship.They help them figure out how to do pitch decks. How do you make sure that you can attract new funding from other investors, from impact investors? How do you get ready to be able to get a project into the carbon market so that you can be able to take advantage of the growth in that carbon credits?Here’s a third story she shared:Another great example is in an organization called Restor, and we're supporting a technical platform where they're using satellite imagery so that anywhere in the world you can go in and you can click in and say, “Okay, I live in Oregon. I want to know what projects are happening around reforestation in Oregon.”We, in fact, get hit all the time by wildfires. It's really bad during the summers in particular. You can go in, you can zoom in on a particular project. You can click in and say, “hey, do they need funding? Do they need volunteers? How far along is the project? Is the project doing what it said it was going to do?”So you have that verification opportunity and it's available really anywhere in the world.“We’re trying to think about a lot of different ways and interventions that we can be investing because frankly, it’s going to take everything,” Naomi says. “It takes all of us in this fight to advance that action.”“I think philanthropy has to be both the best and boldest risk-tolerant capital out there,” she says. “And it also has to be the patient capital.” In the climate space, corporations have invested billions and will invest trillions, but philanthropy will have to lead.“When I think about risk tolerance, you know, with an angel investor, I did some research once, and I think they expect like 5 to 10 percent of their portfolio in angel investing to hit,” Naomi says. “We expect way more out of our philanthropic portfolios. We expect results. You know, we fund programs, we fund outcomes, but we’re not always investing in the innovation, and we’re not always investing in the capacity building that’s needed.”Salesforce is working to change that dynamic.In this massive effort, Naomi draws on her superpower, which I’ll call leading collaboration.How to Develop Leading Collaboration As a SuperpowerNaomi used to think of her superpower as being able to bring order to chaos, but recently she’s begun to appreciate the way that could limit outcomes. She now sees herself bringing flow to the chaos that comes from having lots of people at the table.“I love a messy, chaotic situation, the energy, sort of the creativity that comes out of there,” she says.Today, she sees the power of collaboration. “It’s really about thinking about how might we take all of this energy, all of this creativity, all of these great ideas and get them to get together and get it all in a single path, driving towards a single outcome where we can have incredible impact.”She strengthened her superpower in 2020 by helping organize and implement Salesforce’s racial equality and justice commitment that came out of a company task force. “We thought about all the different parts of our business that needed to come together to think about how do we support racial equity? How do we support racial justice?” Naomi says, “We made bold commitments across our people, our philanthropy, our policy positions and our purchasing.”“That was a hard moment,” She says. “I’m going to be honest, like the emotions that I felt, the emotions our community was feeling, that sense of the magnitude of this reckoning was so big. How are we ever going to do enough?”The task force was deliberate about setting bold goals. The company published them on the website and is tracking its progress publicly.This project was a big win for Naomi, and she credits her ability to lead collaboration for getting it done.She offers some advice for leading collaboration effectively.“The approach that Salesforce comes from, when we think particularly about our community impact work, starts with listening like we don’t have all of the answers,” she says.“We have to listen to those who have the expertise,” Naomi says. “We have to listen to those with lived experiences. We have to listen to those who are closest to the challenge because honestly, they usually have the best solutions.”She offered a compelling example of listening and learning. In the reforestation effort around the world, one of the significant challenges is around seeds—collection, storage, and then getting saplings out of them. “But what’s not clear is exactly the right intervention.”After listening to the experts, Naomi and the team identified a pivotal spot to invest some philanthropic capital. “We funded in Hawaii a technician who’s going to sit down with the expert in that area around a particular tree that’s critical to that ecosystem. And we’re going to support that training and the passing down of that knowledge.”She also said the fund would try several things and recognize that some would fail. “Let’s learn from it. Let’s learn from where we failed.”By following Naomi’s example and her advice, you can make leading collaboration a superpower that will enable you to do more good in the world.

Argentina surrendered to British forces in Port Stanley on the 14th of June 1982. The Falklands conflict was over. In the months after the fighting ended troops and their equipment shipped out, graves were dug and memorials were put up across the islands for those killed in battle. British military personnel were identified, most buried at sea or repatriated to the UK. But for 237 deceased Argentine soldiers, their hastily buried bodies remained unidentified for decades and their families were left unable to claim their loved ones who'd died fighting in the islands. Their memorials read simply: “Argentine Soldier Known Only By God”Then in 2012, a team embarked on a project to change that. The International Committee of the Red Cross began a mission to collect DNA samples from each of the unknown graves in the hope that they could give the Argentine soldiers back their names and provide answers to relatives. Reporter Beth Timmins went to the Falkland Islands for the 40th-anniversary commemorations earlier this year and tells this moving story on this final podcast of our Falklands40 series.If you want to find more episodes on the Falklands War, you can go back through the Dan Snow History Hit feed and look for episodes that begin with 'Falklands40'.

Here's a "special edition" episode of the program - 10 Parallel World Punk-Era 45s, all "singles" that should have existed as singles but never actually did. This is actually cribbed from a piece I wrote in Dynamite Hemorrhage fanzine #6 back in 2017, and while I should have turned that article into a podcast back then to help "strengthen the brand", the idea only occured to me five years later, i.e. this week. So if you pulled together some of the best punk-era compilation tracks, demos, album cuts etc. into a series of ten 7" singles, that series might sound something like this. The punk era is very expansively defined as 1977-2000 for our purpose, and includes material by The Bags, Midnight Circus, The Screamers, 2x4s, Red Cross, 39 Clocks and more. We've even added bonus fake 45s from Saccharine Trust and the Flesh Eaters for this very special podcast version of the article.

Herbert Hoover's management of the flood relief garnered widespread praise and put him in position to secure the Republican nomination for President. But the African-American press told a different story, one of rampant racial abuse in Red Cross camps throughout the flood zone.In Greenville, Mississippi, the exploitation of Black workers was especially persistent. In the summer, tensions rose to new heights, and soon, a fatal shooting would tear the battered town apart.Listen ad free with Wondery+.

Synopsis When the United States entered World War I, American animosity against all things German resulted in a ban on German symphonic music and operas. During the Second World War however, musically-speaking, things were VERY different. With America at war with Germany and Italy, music by Wagner and Verdi, for example, continued to be performed in our concert halls and opera houses. In fact, just as the Nazis tried to appropriate German classical music for their propaganda purposes, the Allies adopted the opening notes of Beethoven's Fifth as a Morse Code "V" for Victory motive, and in OUR wartime propaganda, Wagner's "Ride of the Valkyries," accompanied images of Allied bombers racing through the clouds to strike German cities. On May 25, 1944, the combined orchestras of the New York Philharmonic and the NBC Symphony presented a Red Cross Benefit concert at Madison Square Garden, with Arturo Toscanini conducting. The first half of the program was all-Wagner, the second half, all-Verdi. During the intermission, New York mayor Fiorello La Guardia auctioned off maestro Toscanini's baton. As a grand finale, after the German and Italian music, Toscanini closed with a rousing all-American encore—his own arrangement of John Philip Sousa's "Stars and Stripes Forever." So, as Walter Cronkite would put it: "That's the way it was, May 25, 1944."

Early in the morning on April 22nd, 1927, flood waters from a break in the Mound Landing levee entered the town of Greenville, Mississippi. Within hours, the town was submerged in 10 feet of water. Thousands of residents fought to reach higher ground, desperately clinging to tree tops and floating houses.The flood inundated 27,000 square miles in seven states. Soon, President Calvin Coolidge appointed Commerce Secretary Herbert Hoover to manage relief efforts for the Red Cross. But Hoover's decision to decentralize relief would have unintended consequences – especially in towns like Greenville, where thousands of Black sharecroppers were virtual prisoners, detained in brutally policed refugee camps.Listen ad free with Wondery+.

The current COVID wave in the U.S. is relatively mild considering what we've seen in the past. For instance, recent data from Johns Hopkins University shows that the daily COVID death rate has really slowed. And COVID hospital admissions are far below what we've seen during other surges. After numerous refusals by Ukraine to surrender the city of Mariupol, Ukrainian officials have brokered a deal with Russia to allow some civilians trapped in a steel mill there to evacuate safely. The operation, in collaboration with the United Nations and the Red Cross, began over the weekend. And in headlines: Thousands of people around the world took to the streets for May Day, the Connecticut Senate passed a bill to protect abortion providers from bans in other states, and now-former member of UK's Parliament Neil Parish resigned over the weekend.
