The B&E Podcast #080
“The Responsibility of Becoming a Major Player”
SUMMARY OF THE PODCAST:
Today we get a little philosophical with it. As we get more success as artists, climbing the ladder so to speak, our reach and impact with our audience grows. Does that mean we have a greater obligation and responsibility in terms of our work and lifestyle? We explore the potential influence we have on the world and what that means for us as growing artists.
POINT #1: “JAWS!!!”
-It was a film about a fictional great white shark which subsequently resulted in the hunting and mass destruction of a habitat. Was the film responsible? Probably not entirely, but its influence is pretty evident.
POINT #2: “BE MINDFUL”
-It’s impossible to know what the full impact of our work and/or celebrity might be in the world. The best thing we can do is to try and be as mindful as possible about the potential destructive outcomes on society as a whole from the messages we’re putting out.
POINT #3: “WE’RE ALL RESPONSIBLE”
-This is not about blaming any one person, organization, or group for the bad things that happen in the world. When you really look at it, we all have a role to play. Ultimately are you trying to put something of light into society to create positive change?
