Tony Loyd is a podcaster who interviews social entrepreneurs. He has just been invited to host a weekly, drive-time radio show. He’s also finishing up a book. To launch all of this, Tony is running a crowdfunding campaign on StartSomeGood.com.
Tony lives by the mantra “miracles happen when you are in motion.” He says, the radio show came about because he was out and about, was producing a podcast and another host of the radio show connected him to the producer.
His book, Crazy Good Advice, features ten lessons from the 150 episodes of his show, extracting patterns and insights from the great social entrepreneurs he’s interviewed.
Tony is out to change the world.
He says, “Our business is focused only on amplifying the stories of social entrepreneurs. Stories move us. They take us out of our logical brains and help us to connect with one another.”
“When people hear stories of social good, they are engaged, informed and inspired,” he continues. “Because social entrepreneurs are everyday people like you and me, when listeners hear their stories, they see themselves as possible changemakers too.”
The audio format is powerful, Tony says. “The stories inspire people to take action. Listeners are more inclined to give time, talent, and treasure to help a cause. Or, they take the leap and become changemakers themselves. The circle expands and encourages more social good and more stories that need to be told.”
