 Listen now as Steve Harper explains the power of The Ripple Effect!

Our conversation is all about how, growing up shy and introverted, he learned to build relationships with people. It wasn't easy.

It's exciting stuff because, as you will hear in our conversation, anthropology and ethnography (observational research) are slowly but surely moving out of their academic silos into the world around us. Listen in and hear why Jay and I are both on a mission to make this sometimes "stuffy thing" called anthropology much more accessible. Enjoy!
