May 2022: Xendit announces $300M Series D and other news
News from Clarity, Dialpad, Living Food, Skillshare, Unravel Carbon, and Xendit; our interview with Genevieve Guenther
This Month's Spotlight
Our research interviews help share digestible introductions to academic research about climate and behavior. These interviews have been thought-provoking for us and our audience. Three examples out of many:
Katy Milkman helped us understand how behaviors and beliefs can form a catalyzing cycle, because when “you change behavior, you change your attitudes about the world to align with those behavior changes.”
Juliet Schor showed us how those changes in individual beliefs and behaviors can ripple outwards to our communities, because “what feels adequate, what’s satisfying… is always in the context of others.”
Daniel Aldana Cohen helped us consider how we might take a shared vision of prosperity and “reverse-engineer from that vision of the good life back towards political priorities and economic priorities and figure out how to get there.”
We hope you find these interviews as engaging as we do. If so, please like and subscribe to our Substack and our social media channels, where we put out new interviews regularly.
