As we settle into a new reality of staying home, finding ways to keep busy can seem daunting. With schools, museums, movie theaters, bars, and restaurants all closed people are turning to other ways to keep themselves entertained. One of the best ways to do so is through Podcasts. Over the past decade, Podcasts have gone from a niche interest to a mainstream form of entertainment. A good Podcast can provide virtual companionship, make you laugh, and teach you something new. But where to begin?

Primed by record-breaking heat, a prolonged drought and windy conditions, Australia’s southern coast has been ravaged with devastating brushfires since September, forcing thousands out of their homes. The fires have claimed 33 innocent lives and has destroyed over 3,000 homes. With 26.2 million acres of land decimated, millions of animals have been under threat, wounded or killed. This extreme event attribute has caused climate scientist and conservationists to speak out on climate change’s role in exacerbating natural disasters. WWSG is proud of the work our elite Speakers have done for our environment and we continue to assist in ‘raising up’ these powerful voices as they fight against environmental catastrophes like Australia’s wildfires, caused by climate change.
Cristina Mittermeier - One of the most influential female photographers in the world and a powerful voice in conservation photography. Cristina began her career as a Marine Biologist. She soon discovered that she could better advocate for the planet through the lens of her camera than she could with data on spreadsheets. In 2005 she founded the prestigious International League of Conservation Photographers (ILCP) which works to support environmental conservation through ethical photography. Cristina also co-founded the conservation society SeaLegacy with her partner, Paul Nicklen which is a collective of photographers who focus on cleaner, healthier oceans.
Paul Nicklen – As a co-founder of SeaLegacy, Paul is one of the world’s most acclaimed nature photographers, an acclaimed polar specialist, author, conservationist, National Geographic Fellow, and a regular contributor to National Geographic Magazine with 20 completed stories to date. He is also highly respected by the conservation community for his outspoken work, collaborating with scientists, filmmakers, conservationists and explorers to create awareness and inspire action for global issues like climate change. Paul has even been awarded the Natural Resources Defense Council BioGems Visionary Award and most recently, was bestowed an honorary PhD at the University of Victoria, for the impact his photography has had on climate change.
Jane Goodall - Hailed as the world’s most important conservationist and animal welfare activist, Dr. Goodall is most famous for her 45-year study of the social and familial interactions of wild chimpanzees. Knowing that local communities are key to protecting chimpanzees she founded the Jane Goodall Institute and redefined traditional conservation with an approach that recognizes the central role people play in the well-being of animals and habitat. Then in 1991, when a group of young people confided their own deep concerns, she invited them to help start Roots & Shoots, a program at work with young people in 100 countries to foster the informed generation of conservation leaders our world so urgently needs.
Newt Gingrich – A longtime advocate for environmentalism and endangered species, Newt Gingrich taught the first environmental studies courses at West Georgia College in the 1970’s. Since then he has been a major proponent for environmentalism. Whether it is working with Nancy Pelosi on a campaign to address climate change, Co-writing A Contract with the Earth about bipartisan environmentalism, or advocating for endangered species through his company Gingrich 360, Newt Gingrich has been an outspoken voice for conservation.
These speakers have used their powerful voices and years of experience to shed a light on these important environmental challenges, not just in Australia but for all the disastrous causes of Climate Change. Cristina Mittermeier once described the job of a conservation photographer as “creating images to inspire people to change behavior” and commit to a public obligation to reverse the impact of climate change. Through their images, writings, research and speeches these thought leaders and climate crusaders have changed the behavior, body of knowledge and thinking of so many.

The situation in Hong Kong has been one of the most dominating news stories for the past few weeks. Tensions have accelerated with no clear sign of a compromise or of slowing down. Protests have continued and calls for freedom have become more widespread. The Honorable Newt Gingrich believes this is an opportunity for the United States to act because as a country who began as a land of freedom and one that continues to protect it, the U.S. has a clear moral and economic interest in preserving the autonomy and freedoms allotted to the people of Hong Kong.
Newt’s new book, “Trump Vs. China: Facing America’s Greatest Threat,” will be released on October 22, 2019. The former Speaker of the House is sounding the warning bell that China poses the biggest threat to the Unites States.

Forty-nine years ago Friday, when astronaut Neil Armstrong became the first person to set foot on the moon, we had every reason to believe that what he called his “small step” was in fact just the beginning of what he described as “one giant leap for mankind.”
In 1969, it was reasonable to expect that our space program would continue to move at the pace of the Apollo program. It was therefore reasonable to think that by 2018 we would have four to five colonies on the moon, space-based outposts in various lunar and cislunar orbits, mining operations on several asteroids, and a preliminary habitat on Mars.

Much of American history has been created by entrepreneurial pioneers who kept inventing things.
Eli Whitney created the mechanical cotton gin in 1793, which sparked a revolution in the ability to process cotton. His development of interchangeable parts for manufacturing revolutionized productivity in factories.
Robert Fulton launched the first commercially successful steamboat that brought passengers from New York City to Albany in 1807. Profitable, timely and efficient, it set a pattern for steamboats that revolutionized travel.
Cyrus McCormick patented the mechanical reaper in 1834 and created various innovative business practices that revolutionized agricultural productivity.
The Wright Brothers discovered how to fly in 1903.
The great political surprise of 2018 will be the size of the Republican victory.
After members of the elite media have spent two years savaging President Trump, lying about Republican legislation, and reassuring themselves that Republican defeat was inevitable, the size of the GOP victory in 2018 will be an enormous shock.
The media elite will gather at a much-diminished White House Correspondents’ Dinner this week. The dinner grew to feature a glitzy parade of celebrities under President Obama, and has also become an increasingly controversial event. This is in large part due to the entertainment.
