TWEETABLE QUOTES

 

“Being able to expand on that through podcasting and through making deeper connections with people around the globe really helped me. And I didn’t realize how close to depression I was when I started this thing.” (09:31) (Corinna)

“I really look for people that can help me cover topics that are really near and dear to my heart, but also just that are rooted in making the world a better place and improving awareness around particular issues. Because it’s my firm belief that, as we improve awareness, we’re going to create a more just and equal world.” (18:30) (Corinna)

“I really just have this simple metric I look for. And that’s just, ‘Are they making a social impact about a particular issue or are they driving something that is really focused on sustainability?’ And if either of those aren’t met, I don’t interview them.” (30:53) (Corinna)

“Even if I’m only reaching a small audience, I’m reaching an audience that cares.” (43:34) (Corinna)

“Having a healthy environment to live and breathe in should be the concern of everybody. These are things that should be the rights of each of us. It shouldn’t be politicized.” (54:01) (Corinna)
