Innovate Podcast is one of several projects conceived of and managed by I-LEAD. Hosts Phillip Thomas and Robert Rimm interview individuals and organizations engaged in work that supports the well-being of typically underserved individuals and communities, and the well-being of the environment. Now in its fifth year of broadcasting, Innovate has interviewed national and international visionaries including Andreas Merkl from Ocean Conservancy; Kumi Naidoo, Jim Fruckterman, CEO of Benetech, and Kevin Kelly, founding editor of Wired.  Innovate exists as a platform to disseminate information and ideas from thought leaders and workers in the field of social entrepreneurship and to inspire those committed to creating a just, equitable world for all of us.
