Threshold Conversations: Hank Green
DFTBA—Don’t forget to be awesome. That’s the motto of the Vlogbrothers, a video blog created by brothers Hank and John Green.
On this episode of Threshold Conversations, our guest is Hank Green, science communicator, YouTuber, and entrepreneur. Among his many projects, Hank hosts the wildly popular YouTube channel SciShow, which brings science to the masses. Hank talks to us about how DFTBA reminds us to do the work to be productive, and to be good friends and citizens. We also talk about his passion for science communication, and why all great communication begins with empathy.
