The web browser that is changing the look of free speech - Jeff Bermant, Tusk Browser
The web browser that is changing the look of free speech - Jeff Bermant, Tusk Browser
Jeff Bermant is the creator of Tusk Browser, a web browser that was designed to fight censorship and promote free speech online.    For nearly 20 years, Jeff has been creating web browsers and online utilities with a focus on privacy and data protection.    His previous project, Cocoon, was a browser platform designed to pay users for the data that is used by advertisers to target them.    Tusk Browser has seen significant growth recently due to the mainstream news companies self censoring news stories that could potentially affect elections.    Jeff explains how his web browser works, his goal of true free speech online, and how the Section 230 law that grants companies the right to cancel users is being used to eliminate the voice of conservatively minded people.   Tusk Browser can be found online at www.tuskbrowser.com   Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/tuskbrowser/?hl=en  Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/TUSKbrowser/  Twitter: https://twitter.com/TuskBrowser  Find out more about the misfit heroes podcast at www.misfit-heroes.com and www.beacons.ai/misfitheroes

The $3 Eyeglasses that Can Solve the Vision Issues of 2.5 Billion People with Pastor Greg Wiens of Global Vision 2020
The $3 Eyeglasses that Can Solve the Vision Issues of 2.5 Billion People with Pastor Greg Wiens of Global Vision 2020
Greg Wiens is a mennonite pastor in Canada who was inspired by the efforts of a military vet in an issue of National Geographic magazine.    While reading an article about the efforts made to offer eyeglasses to people in third world countries, Greg and his partner devised an efficient and cost-effective method of giving eye exams to those less fortunate.   The exam takes seconds, and has improved the quality of life for people in underserved communities around the globe.  His program recently went viral on Tiktok when he gave an eye exam and had a pair of glasses prepared in under 3 minutes, at a cost of roughly $3 USD.    We discuss how the program came to existence, why we don't hear more about the lack of optometry in the media, Greg's passionate tale of how helping the Congalese citizens of Africa has not only brought communities together, and the sacrifices that have been made to heal a war ravaged community.   Global Vision 2020 can be found online at https://www.gv2020.org/  Tiktok: https://www.tiktok.com/@globalvision2020?lang=en  Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/global_vision_2020/  Twitter: https://twitter.com/gv2020_org  Linkedin: https://www.linkedin.com/company/global-vision-2020  Find out more about the Misfit Heroes Podcast at www.misfit-heroes.com and www.beacons.ai/misfitheroes

This CEO is giving away free water and wants to give you groceries free too! - Josh Cliffords, Freewater.io
Josh Cliffords is the CEO of Free Water, an Austin, TX based startup that is the first free beverage company that uses ads placed on their labels to not only pay for their business cost, but also donate at least ten cents to charity per bottle.   Not only does his unique idea have potential to flip the beverage industry upside down, he also wants to make free grocery stores as well.    Freewater's tiktok has recently outgrown the following of corporate accounts like coke and pepsi.   We discuss in-depth how the company offers the water for free, how Josh wants to create grocery stores filled with free groceries, how his product is negatively priced, and the upcoming freewater vending machines that will pay people to drink their free water.   Find out more about free water at www.freewater.io   Tiktok: https://www.tiktok.com/@freewater.io?lang=en   Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/freewater.io/?hl=en   Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/FreeWaterTeam/   Twitter: https://twitter.com/freewaterio?lang=en   Find out more about the Misfit Heroes Podcast at www.misfit-heroes.com and www.beacons.ai/misfitheroes

From online philanthropy to the future of feeding the homeless with cryptocurrency with Ken Kim of Crypto For The Homeless
From online philanthropy to the future of feeding the homeless with cryptocurrency with Ken Kim of Crypto For The Homeless
Have you ever wanted to help the less fortunate but maybe don’t have the wherewithal or financial capacity to help others yourself?  If so, you need to listen to this episode. This is a common occurrence, and unfortunately a tough reality in america. How many times have you seen someone begging on a street corner and literally hundreds of cars driving by without any attention given? Couple that with the fact that according to a 2021 study by the national law center on homelessness and poverty , nearly 25% of the homeless in america suffer from mental health issues, and it makes it almost understandable for the people driving by. My guest tonight saw that need during his time walking back and forth to medical school, and he decided this was a problem that he could help fix. Ken Kim is the creator of Crypto For The Homeless, a New Jersey based nonprofit that uses cryptocurrency to reimburse people that buy homeless and houseless people meals. We discuss his reasoning for using crypto as a reimbursement, how the usage of crypto has served meals on a global platform, and how you can get involved for free. Modern problems require modern solutions, misfits, so let’s get to solving. Please welcome, Ken Kim. Crypto For The Homeless can be found online at http://cryptoforthehomeless.org/ and http://cryptoforthehomeless.com/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Cryptofthl Twitter: https://twitter.com/CRYPTOFTHL Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/cryptofthl/ Find out more about the Misfit Heroes Podcast by visiting www.misfit-heroes.com or www.beacons.ai/misfitheroes

The importance of education for a free mind with Connor Boyack
The importance of education for a free mind with Connor Boyack
Connor Boyack is the creator of the Tuttle Twins series of books, a children’s book series that teaches children positive moral values in fun and character driven stories.    The Tuttle Twins books teach children positive moral values like the golden rule, non-aggression, how inflation works and why prices of the items we buy keep increasing, individual rights, justice, and what a free market is.    He is also the founder of the Libertas Institute, and has worked to help establish laws in his home state of Utah.    We discuss the vast amount of empty uncontested political elections in america, why our government leaders seem wildly unknowledgeable about many issues, and why children are learning agendas in the public school system rather than actionable insight into how to live a prosperous life.   Connor Boyack can be found online at www.tuttletwins.com www.libertas.org and www.connorboyack.com Twitter: https://twitter.com/cboyack Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/cboyack Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/connorboyack/ Why not become a patron and support the show?:  https://www.patreon.com/Misfitheroes    Find out more about the Misfit Heroes Podcast at www.misfit-heroes.com and www.beacons.ai/misfitheroes

Always Banks is the creator and executive director of the princess program foundation, a 501c3 nonprofit that brings joy to children with terminal illnesses  by offering in person and zoom meetings with princesses.    Since 2017, Banks and her merry group of volunteers have been delighting children with terminal illnesses across the United States and internationally, all while she is also working on her own personal nursing degree.    According to the national cancer institute, each year in the United States, an estimated 1 in 285 children will be diagnosed with Cancer before their 20th birthday.    As difficult as this news is to receive for an adult, learning this as a child is not only difficult to understand, but also starts a path of treatment that is draining both emotionally and physically.    My guest tonight aims to alleviate those painful events for children by sharing an experience with their favorite princess and superhero characters, and her videos with these children are truly magical.    We discuss the heart-wrenching story of how her organization got started, the dedication and dexterity it takes to keep character in difficult conversations, and the emotional response Alyssa and the princesses get when a child tells them they rung the bell to beat cancer.   Learn more about the princess program foundation at www.princessprogram.foundation    Instagram:  https://www.instagram.com/princessprogram.official/   Tiktok: https://www.tiktok.com/@princessprogramofficial   Find out more about the Misfit Heroes Podcast at www.misfit-heroes.com and www.beacons.ai/misfitheroes

Brandon Lopez is the CEO and executive director of The Embrace Foundation, a 501c3 nonprofit that provides insulin and diabetes testing supplies for type 1 and 2 diabetics that can not afford to pay for them. Since being diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at the age of seven years old, Brandon has dealt with the financial and healthcare woes that many diabetics in America suffer regularly. Diabetes is the seventh highest cause of death in the United States of America, and in 2018, the Center for Disease Control estimated that 34.2 million people in America had diabetes. That is 10.5% of the American population. We discuss Brandon’s journey through Diabetes treatment, how the modern American healthcare system has caused many Americans to ration their Diabetes supplies, and how The Embrace Foundation is changing lives by providing the supplies diabetics need to stay alive.

Robert Hayes - NC State University - Is Tribalism Limiting Us In Faith And Science?
Robert Hayes is a nuclear engineering professor at North Carolina State University, a certified health physicist, and a fellow of the American Physical Society. Robert was raised in Salt Lake City, UT by a single mother who had an atheist world view, and was exposed to Mormon religious beliefs through his father. Robert explains Nuclear Energy and Engineering. To many, that is a fairly difficult topic to digest, but he does so in a way that is fun and engaging via TikTok and social media channels, and has grown to over 41k followers during lockdown, bringing a new lease to people that may not have displayed an interest in Nuclear Science before. But it hasn’t come without its pitfalls. Rob is a devout Christian, and went viral in one of his tiktoks about being a Christian who also believes in science. We discuss the future of nuclear science, and why Americans have had trouble normalizing Nuclear Energy, His faith and how it has affected his interactions in the science community, and how tribalism is controlling narratives around the adoption of nuclear energy.

Elizabeth Fisher Good - Have You Been Groomed For Success or Failure? How One Thought Has Saved Thousands of Women from the Sex Trade
Elizabeth Fisher Good is the co-founder and CEO of Selah Freedom and The Selah Way Foundation, an organization that helps free women from the sex trade and provide a safe housing environment for the victims of this life. Since 2010, Her work with the organization has freed over 10,000 women from sex work and prostitution, and has created demonstrable change in laws across the country, as well as around the world.  Nearly half a million children every year are sold into sex trafficking. 1 out of every 3 girls, and 1 out of every 5 boys will experience sexual abuse in their lifetime. Elizabeth is working to make that number zero. Through telling these womens' stories at their court hearings, and confronting the perpetrators of their abuse, the victims are able to overcome their past, and inspire others that may be in similar situations to have hope for the future.  Elizabeth has recently had a new book published through Harper Collins, "Groomed: Overcoming the Messages that Shaped Our Past and Limit Our Future", and has been an advocate, speaker, and leader in the field of sex trafficking awareness and prevention for over a decade. We discuss the surprising and unlikely themes of the book, which is less about sex trafficking, and more about the grooming by those around us, which can lead to the proclivity to create the trafficking trade itself.  We also discuss how the Selah Way Foundation was able to incorporate their programs into law enforcement agencies and enact real world policy changes in America, and the ways that people are groomed for appearance, invisibility, judgement, and finances. Elizabeth can be found online at www.freewithe.com and her book is available wherever fine books are sold.
