In this episode we have interviews with Roger Conner, Mohamed Abdelkarim Haroun, and Marshall Stuart. Roger is a woodworker who is part of Fort Houston. He brought Fort Houston on board to take over the assembly operation of the 100 Ventilator Project. Mohamed works at a makerspace located in NYC. He has shared with us how the Pandemic has affected the Makerspaces in the city. Mo goes into detail how the makerspaces are ran, as part of City Parks and Recreation. Marshall is employee at Pennington Distillery. He was instrumental in getting his distillery shifted into a lifesaving hand sanitizer manufacturing plant. He shares with us what that looks like and how this pandemic has changed the way many distilleries operate.
Executive Director Will Harper and Media Lab Captain Chad Krash, have launched a podcast called “One Million Breaths” to be released this week. The podcast will feature the team giving updates on the makerspace and the COVID-19 effort.
They will also be sharing commentary on local and national news stories. ” There needs to be a sharing of information to inform the community about what’s going on in the Makerspace and a Podcast seems the perfect mode of sharing information in these times.” said Harper. The podcast has a Instagram profile @onemillionbreaths and the team will be posting updates there and on the website. The podcast will include interviews from volunteers and other people who have answered the call to join the battle.
