Here is a show description:
"Our upcoming podcast series, 20 Minutes A Day, was designed to promote the 2 Minutes A Day Project and the larger mission of Chemists Without Borders. The goal of the 2 Minutes A Day project is to build a community where individuals - chemists and their networks as well as anyone else interested - can share and discuss problems, propose solutions, and collaborate in order to have an impact. The philosophy is that, by thinking about an issue for just 2 minutes a day, this focus and concentration will become a habit; people will start to be more conscious and aware of opportunities, whether the issue is global or more localized, and will be driven to take action. This show, known as 20 Minutes A Day, is designed to highlight change makers in the chemistry community everywhere. Here, we hope to discuss how we can all work towards advancing humanitarian causes in the context of our often deeply busy and scheduled lives. With the goal of 2 Minutes A Day in mind, we look to tell these stories with incremental approach. Each episode will run for 20 minutes, with the intent of exposing our listeners to one humanitarian-scientist per episode. The objective of this show is to cultivate a distinctly humanitarian mindset. We hope that by bringing on a diverse community of scientists, we can address this angle."
