Our guest this week is Quinn Emmett.
Quinn is the founder of Important not Important, which is a weekly podcast series and email newsletter dedicated to bringing forth issues of climate change, human rights, and scientifically backed data science.
Quinn describes Important Not Important as “science, news and analytics for people who give a shit.”
Quinn and I have been friends for more than a year, and in that time, I continuously see him bring awareness to conversations that are so important for us as inhabitants of our planet.
In addition to being a caring and forthcoming person, he is also a great brand builder, as his podcast continues to generate important conversations with some of the most influential experts on climate change, human rights, and global wellness.
I always enjoy my conversations with Quinn, and this podcast was no exception.
In this episode we talk about…
- Why Quinn decided to create Important not Important
- What some of his major lessons have been in creating an online company that has a purpose and mission behind it
- How the US needs to rethink its power grid
- What the biggest and most insidious inequalities in our society are, and what are the steps we can take to fix them.
