Let’s Get Changed: Check Out Our New Podcast

A Force for Better Business 

You might be wondering, “does the world really need another podcast?” Perhaps not. 

But highlighting business as a force for good? It’s what LOACOM is all about. And we are thrilled to take it a step further with Let’s Get Changed –– our new podcast elevating the people, strategies, and impact of those who use their companies as a tool for progressive social and environmental change. 

With global business savvy geared towards better world solutions–– and deep dives into philosophy, passion projects, and shared connections along the way–– Let’s Get Changed is not just another podcast; it’s a force for better business.

Get to Know Your Host

Eric Cardenas, CEO and co-founder of LOACOM, is no stranger to challenging the business-as-usual mantra. Dedicated to impact in his own beloved community of Santa Barbara, California for over 30 years, Eric is a long-time advocate for social and conservation causes, having spent time working as a community organizer, nonprofit sector employee, professional facilitator, and now, corporate executive. His professional path has created many unique opportunities for him, including landing him his current role as Board President for the Fund for Santa Barbara and Secretary for the Johnson Ohana Foundation. Now, we add podcast host to his list of experiences.

To Eric, Let’s Get Changed calls attention to the work of a diverse set of leaders challenging the status quo of how a traditional business should operate: Our goal with Let’s Get Changed is to highlight key strategies that can be replicated by our listeners in their business endeavors as we move from extractive to regenerative business models.
