Brandon Rhodes is The Sprocket Podcast’s former cohost, and founder of the bicycle-based local organic produce delivery business Rolling Oasis Grocers.
Scott Davison createdVocoform, an organization that helps people with barriers to advancement find their calling in meaningful work, and powered the startup of Rolling Oasis.
Mychal Tetteh is CEO of theCommunity Cycling Center, a Portland nonprofit with the goal of “broadening access to bicycling and its benefits” that is partnering with Rolling Oasis to expand grocery delivery service to other Portland neighborhoods, particularly those with less access to affordable produce.
This week we discuss how to put the heart and soul back into local business to help people thrive. Hint: It involves bicycles! Find the Rolling Oasis Crowdfunding page here.
We’d like to welcome our new beverage sponsor, The Beer Mongers! Many appreciations to Sean Campbell for keeping us socially lubricated. And as always, thanks to our generous Patreon donors that keep us going!
