In this episode, Steve Durbin, Chief Executive of the ISF, speaks with a guest whose focus includes human culture, behavior, and storytelling: singer/songwriter and activist Sir Bob Geldof, lead singer of the Boomtown Rats and founding member of ​Band-Aid, famous for raising money for Ethiopian famine relief.​

Steve and Sir Bob discuss the effect of the Covid19 pandemic on creativity, the political turmoil facilitated by rapidly advancing digital technology, Sir Bob’s hope for fresh ideas, the courage to embrace change, and more.
