Interviews with 30 Social Changemakers: Big Vision Podcast 2nd Anniversary

February 18, 2008 was the 2nd anniversary of the Big Vision Podcast!

A big thanks to everyone who listens to the program and reads the interview transcripts here on Have Fun * Do Good.

Over the past two years I have had the privilege of interviewing 30 "Big Visionaries." Their stories are the fuel that keeps me going. I hope they are inspiring for you as well.

I've listed all of the interviews below with links to the podcast and the transcript. Please note that since the interviews take place over two years, some people's work has changed and they may have new job titles, or may be working somewhere else now.
