A Better World Podcast

A Better World Podcast

By Marc Ross
A semi-weekly thirty minutes of inspiration. Hosted by Marc Ross, Chief Instigator at Needle Consultants, LLC, this podcast focuses on the world of inspiration, purpose, business, and art. Each episode, listeners will hear from leaders who recognize that our civilization is at a crossroads, where resources are becoming scarce, people are becoming fragmented, and government is dysfunctional. Instead, we are turning to our business leaders and cultural icons to lead the way, to inspire us, and to help us all in the mission of leaving the Earth a bit better than we found it.
