Passion Meets Purpose: Why Our Communities Need Thriving Artists

Adam McKay—the writer, director, and producer of Academy Award nominated satire Don’t Look Up—was recently on the SmartLess Podcast and memorably said that our world right now is like a bouncy castle full of hyenas and long-stemmed wine glasses.
