btw I always take the soap I used with me. they last me years.
I thought this episode was a retold story of a hotel soap rebrand I read before. but this one is so much more, not only these soaps have their lives renewed , they also have a more meaningful life to save lives. I had a pretty stressful and depressing day, but listening to this story, with this guy's hopeful exciting voice, I feel uplifted and happy. thank you!
Pretty basic information that most of us know already
One aspect of this story that was missed is the attempts to unionize after the private equity takeover of hospitals. There is absolutely a reason the staff of hospitals taken over by private equity have attempted to regain some power by unionizing.Take a look at what has happened in the Pacific Northwest, specifically in Seattle and Portland. Hospitals have actually been ruined and even destroyed by private equity acquisition due to the poor treatment of staff by new management.

This podcast is a thinly veiled boomer corporate apologist-fest. CaPiTaLiSM sOlVeS evERyThiNg!
Although "Flagpole Sitta" was Harvey Danger's only ORIGINAL hit, it's arguable that "Save it for Later" was an EXCELLENT cover that got nearly as much airplay in the late-1990s/early-2000s club and frat party scene. This brings up an interesting issue: can a well-done cover of a hit song ALSO be a hit? This is pretty arguable in the affirmative when you look at Marvin Gaye's and CCR's "Heard it Through the Grapevine." On the flip side of the proverbial cassette tape is this propensity to call EVERYTHING from "hit makers" like Taylor Swift and Beyoncé a "hit" "just because." Quality over quantity
The US already tried prohibiting alcohol and found it a counterproductive policy.
there is not a single industry that private equity firms are not determined to use to squeeze as many pennies out of the other 99% as possible.
sad to hear such audio pollution (adverts) at 10 decibels louder than podcast 😰 really annoying

does the Catholic Church even acknowledge evolution? I don't feel like you can ask them about souls of Neanderthals and homosapiens if they don't believe that humans actually evolved
Not a real environmentalist, sorry.
Are you serious? The only famine is at Ukraine! Do you know what is going on?
If you have not yet entered into a relationship or marriage, but you are thinking about this big step, then I recommend you to get acquainted with this site https://datewise.org/. Because this is where there are so many articles on various relationship and marriage topics that you may find useful, and through them you will be able to deduce useful information.
As an urbanist Progressive, two nonstandard takes: A) What a CLEAR case for the need to reduce car dependency. B) Even hunters should see the IRONY in complaining about wolves hunting as their NATURAL predatory habit versus protecting "their" billions-of-dollars "industry" --it's not the 1800s anymore.
I haven't heard this yet but I am your BIGGEST FAN. I really appreciate you.
