Social Media And Philanthropy: Interview With Larry Blumenthal

In this week’s edition of my podcast, Public Life Today, I interview the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation’s director of social media strategy, Larry Blumenthal.

I recently ran across a post of Larry’s in which he describes how social media is not only a useful communications tool — but how it can also help foundations do a better job of philanthropy.

So I contacted Larry and asked if he wouldn’t mind talking about it for a bit. Our sixteen-minute conversation was terrific, and touched on a number of interesting issues, including the groundbreaking Changemakers initiative.

Thanks, Larry, for talking to me.

Enjoy!
