As the host of NPR One’s Full Disclosure, Roben Farzad plays a critical role in helping students, business leaders and more stay aware of how they can rise to overcome the challenges that the COVID-19 crisis is presenting to the economy, to education, and more.
For Roben, as the son of a doctor, it is a great feeling to be in a position to give advice and to be a helper. Since April, his podcast has featured five episodes centered on how the COVID-19 crisis is affecting investment, retail, the clean energy economy, small business, and how new high school students are having to navigate and reassess their plans for college.
Roben recommends that his listeners and anyone who is nervous during these difficult times try to wake up each morning and think to themselves: “What can I do today to help someone?” Doing so, according to Roben, will help “strengthen the balance sheet of the planet.”
