Welcome to What’s the Big Idea? from Abel Communications, a podcast about ideas: where they come from, what they have the power to achieve, and why some ideas catch on while others falter.

 *TW: This episode contains discussion of infant loss and grief.

In this episode, Greg is joined by Shantell Roberts, founder and executive director of Touching Young Lives, Inc., a Baltimore-based nonprofit. The two explore how remarkable innovation can come from tragedy and adversity and how a seemingly simple idea can have life-saving impacts. Shantell shares how her nonprofit pivoted during COVID-19 and how adapting to the crisis enabled her to touch even more lives than before.
