Middlebury Five-O: Susan Shashok & Robin Scheu

The owner of Caroline’s Dream, a local handcrafted skincare product
business, and the Director of the Addison County Economic Development
Corporation collaborate in this wonderful show about community-oriented
entrepreneurship and a revolutionary approach to business funding. Susan
talks about her paleo-friendly, locally-rooted business model. She
introduces her Yuba delivery bicycle (a truly magnificent specimen),
partially funded through a Clean-Energy Grant awarded by the ACEDC. These
engrossing and articulate women go on to explain how Caroline’s Dream is
planning to expand through a Kiva Zip loan – an innovative funding
mechanism poised to transform small business lending and the fabric of
economic development.

Middlebury Five-O: Bryan Alexander

An intellectual roller-coaster of a show, sweeping with breathtaking velocity through such divergent topics as the correlation between beards and airport security searches, and the overwhelming significance of the French Revolution. Bryan’s incredible breadth of thought shines through – along with his sparkling wit, and shimmering charm – as he describes his vision of technology and teaching, in this conversation that is by turns powerful, challenging and deeply inspiring. Recorded 3/17/16.
