38. Styrofoam, Bail Bonds, And Babies On Planes With Clark Canez

17

This week’s episode guest is Clark Canez! Clark is an improviser in Los Angeles. You can see him around the indie scene with teams RavenPuff, Gosh Guys, And Hempire Strikes back. Clark and I catch up and talk all about:

Yet another baby that was born on an airplane! This baby now gets free flights for life from Jet Airways.

There are a few different groups around the country that do “Re-Cycling”, i.e. fixing up old, donated bicycles and gifting them to children. I found one in Illinois that’s been around since 1950. They are currently looking for a new home after being forced out of their rental space.

The Brooklyn Community Bail Fund is a non-profit that works to bail out those who can’t afford to pay their pre-trail bonds. Often people are put in jail simply because they can’t afford fines. This means that non-violent and presumably innocent people are stuck behind bars. Brooklyn Bail Community Bail Fund raises the funds to bail people out, provides support through case management, and advocates for systematic reform.  They are awesome. Period.

The Institute for Sustainability, Energy and Environment at the University of Illinois has figured out how to recycle Styrofoam in a way that is actually economically sustainable.

Clark is from Covina and a few different representatives from Home Depots nearby just repainted a non-profit teen center. The teen center was started by the Man-E Moreno Foundation. The foundation put together by the family members of Manny Moreno, a victim of a random act of violence, in an effort to provide the community with guidance for at risk youth.

Animal Corner features a little Terrier that was finally adopted into a home after spending 7 years in an animal shelter!

Good News!
