The holiday season is the time of year when everyone’s feeling extra giving. We’re counting our blessings, and refocusing on our values, and so we want to give back. But how do you know if a cause is actually helpful? What’s the best way to make an impact—do you give your spare change to the bell-waving Santas on the corner, or just say “yes” every time the cashier asks you to donate an extra dollar? Sally Boulter is here to help us learn a little more about charities and where donated money goes. Sally is a Senior Engagement Officer at Impact Assets, where she has helped charities raise philanthropic capital.

Water You Talking About

18 MINS

Does the water you drink come from the French Alps? Is it filtered through volcanic rock in Fiji? Does it really matter? There are a surprising number of conflicting opinions on what kind of water you should drink. Water can’t just be water anymore, it has to be “alkaline” or “non-fluorinated,” or the 6-8 glasses you drink a day don’t even count! Today we want to get to the bottom of the water trend, and find out which water is really the best for you. Whether you drink water out of a bottle, a filter, or the tap, let’s find out what the deal is. Scott Miller is a fifth-year doctoral student at the Berkeley Water Center. He and his colleagues run the podcast “Water You Talking About.” Scott joins us today by telephone to help explain the effects of different types of water.
