Class Starter: A Beautiful World Podcast

do-good1Rob Greenfield had a simple idea, that people are good and the world is a good place. So he decided to put his idea to the ultimate test by flying one-way to a far off place with no money, no credit card, no cellphone, not even a toothbrush. Just the clothes on his back and a passport. He says “Mainstream media portrays the world as a dangerous place, a place that you should fear and I’m out to prove them wrong.”

Listen to Rob Greenfield’s story & write a blog about his story and podcast itself.
Bonus:**Check out the video that Rob made using no camera of his own!
