Episode 7: Activation

This is the final episode of Season 1 of the 5% and Falling podcast. In this episode, we investigate how empathy, knowledge and evidence come together to enable change, to reduce suffering and improve lives. Throughout this season, we brought you stories of public health in action, from the small town of Kabwe in Zambia to the bustling avenues of New York City. And the stories presented here are just the beginning. As you listen to this episode, maybe while you’re driving to work, cooking dinner, or riding the bus, we encourage you to take a moment and think about what causes motivate you. How can you make an impact in your community? Whose champion will YOU be? Thank you to our guests for this episode, Julie Avina, Julia Cartwright and Melody Goodman.


 

Episode 6: Domino

What happens when small events accumulate, build momentum and create an, unstoppable force? How can we put the lid back on pandora’s box? In this episode, we bring you stories about people who study the world’s most dangerous infectious diseases and how a group of brilliant minds in both government and academia are devoting their careers to tracking and preventing the next epidemic. Thank you to our guests for this episode, David Abramson, Natalie DeGraaf and Christiana Coyle.


 

Episode 5: Hypnosis

How do we make free choices in a world full of suggestion? What we choose to eat, drink and breathe directly affects how we nourish the cells within our bodies. In this episode we investigate the power of suggestion and the power of information (or misinformation), from nutrition labels to soda taxes, and tobacco addiction to obesity awareness. Thank you to our guests for this episode, Marie Bragg, Cheryl Healton, Alysa Miller and Marion Nestle.


 

Episode 4: Collision

What can happen when good forces collide? Who is helped? Who is left behind? In this episode, we discover what happens when multiple forces try to do good, share information and learnings from the field, and bring their expertise and resources to help the most vulnerable populations around the world. But despite our best intentions, how can we be sure those most in need don't get left behind? Thank you to our guests for this episode, Peter Navario and Tara Shirazian.


 

Episode 3: Blind Spots

How can we know what we don’t know? How do we measure what we cannot see? In this episode we bring you stories about how we research the hidden forces that affect our world. From social stigma across cultures to injustices in clinical drug trials, we shed light on the invisible subjects that lie at the root of our most urgent public health vulnerabilities. Thank you to our guests for this episode, Bernadette Boden-Albala, Melody Goodman and Lawrence Yang.


 

Episode 2: Dependencies

How do we exercise empathy? How can we better understand addiction and begin the healing process? In this episode we investigate the many shifting forms of addiction, and why the most vulnerable populations have the most to lose. Thank you to our guests for this episode, Cheryl Healton and Danielle Ompad.


 

Episode 1: Resilience

When faced with loss, how do we rebuild and heal? And when facing a tipping point and disaster is imminent, what do we do? In this episode, we bring you stories about people who have experienced disasters and held on, no matter what, to survive. From Hurricane Katrina to polluted drinking water to children inhaling lead particles, we ask: How do we bounce back from disaster? Thank you to our guests for this episode, David Abramson, Jack Caravanos, Bret Ericson, and Alexis Merdjanoff.
