Charity: Water's Scott Harrison
Today (March 22) is World Water Day, so on this week's show we talk to Charity: Water founder and CEO Scott Harrison. Scott is doing some significant things to fight the world water crisis, and he gives us some practical steps to engage the issue and help bring relief. We also introduce you to a great new indie/folk band, Mount Moriah. Plus, Jesse returns as an "older, wiser and more-mature" dad (not really), Cameron recounts his best birthday ever and the crew debates the awesomeness of going to space.
