Episode 24 of the Giving Thought podcast is our first ever interview! And it is a cracker. Rhod speaks to Jeremy Heimans, co-author of bestselling book "New Power".
We discussed Jeremy and his co-author Henry Timms' thesis on why the nature of power has changed in the 21st Century and what this might mean for philanthropy and civil society.
We covered a whole range of issues including:
-the challenges of giving away power
-the benefits and downsides of decentralisation
-whether giving control to the crowd could marginalise unpopular causes
-Changing organisational culture to embrace technology
-Whether New Power provides a use case for blockchain
-Is New Power an opportunity or a threat for existing philathropic organisations?
