In this episode of Podshout, we talk to a truly inspirational Australian, Vietnam War Veteran, Brendan “Tombstone” Kincade OAM.

 

Brendan has spent much of his life working to improve the welfare of other Veterans and educating younger Australians about the Anzac Spirit, but also – the futility of War.

Mixed in with all this, is the wonderful story of how Brendan met his wife Sheryl, who he met through his welfare work with Veterans and their families. 

Episode 8: An interview with the inspiring Ian Carson, Co-Founder of SecondBite

In this week’s episode, we hear how a humble idea became a reality for a man who professes that he likes to right wrongs.

Co-founder of SecondBite, Ian Carson AO walks our listeners through how the organisation rescues almost 20 million kilograms of food a year and turns it into healthy meals for those Australians who have no food security.

Ian explains why SecondBite is actually a logistics organisation and how 20 cents equates to a meal for those in need.

Ian shares the concept of Shared Vision and how corporates can work with charities to improve societal issues. He explains why major partner Coles have been able to increase staff engagement levels through their association with SecondBite

Finally, we touch on the role of volunteers and what drives him to give so freely of his time.
