Nisiar got his start in finance by walking into a bank when he was 18 and asking for a job. He worked his way up to being a credit analyst, and when he saw the data on Philly credit scores, he was taken aback. He came up with a plan to educate the masses about credit and empower them financially. When he pitched it to his bosses, they said no, because it wasn't profitable.

After spending her early 20s as an artist in New York, Emily came to Philadelphia in 2009 just one year after the Magic Gardens opened to the public. She would get a job there working the front desk, stay for about a year, then move on to North Carolina. But, it wasn’t too long until Philly and the Gardens called her back.

She became the Executive Director of the gardens in 2011, and since then the mosaic labyrinth has become one of Philly’s top tourist destinations. In this episode, we’ll talk about how, for the first few years as the gardens soared in popularity, Emily’s personal art career fell by the wayside. But, in 2015, she was violently assaulted, and she turned to painting to cope.

And, we’ll talk about her mission to protect the art of Isaiah Zagar, who over the past 50 years has created over 220 public art pieces across the city, and how many of which are in danger.

Alex Scott: The Girl Who Fought Cancer With Lemonade Alex Scott: The Girl Who Fought Cancer With Lemonade Mon, 14 May 2018 09:00:56 GMT 54:09 5af72296802ac1c025073ea8 no http://podphillywho.com/lemonade full 2 Alex Scott was diagnosed with neuroblastoma when she was just a few months old. She would undergo various cancer treatments her whole life.

This idea started a national movement that would thrust her into national fame, including appearances on The Oprah Winfrey Show and The Today Show.

Today, Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation has raised over $150 million since Alex's first stand. ALSF is headquartered right outside of Philadelphia, in Bala Cynwyd. The foundation is operated by her parents, Co-Executive Directors Jay and Liz Scott.

In this episode, Liz tells Alex's story from the very first stand up to her goal of raising $1 million to fight childhood cancer.
