Invisible Children: Trials & Triumphs of Nonprofit Champions

During Jason's time as Co-founder and Chief Creative Officer at Invisible Children, their KONY 2012 viral phenomenon sparked a movement due in large part to Jason's visionary storytelling, but the effects weren't all positive. While Invisible Children's hyperfocus led to incredible outward success, it also resulted in a breakdown of internal care—a topic that Jason has spoken candidly over the years.

In this conversation, Jason and Justin discuss Oprah and Obama, the spectrum of activism, and catalyzing new generations through a radical new project, Broomstick Engine.
