  I was trying to figure out how to describe our guest for 1pm today, which isn't easy.  It seems like he has a lot of pursuits going on, with a common underlying motivation, but not anything that fits into the usual categories.  Then I found a mention on this website of an award he won that seems to sum it all up: The Temple Award for Creative Altruism.  You can learn more about the award and the institute behind it here.  It was the phrase "creative altruism" that struck me, though.  That seems to be the common thread in his works, whether doing prisoner outreach, writing books and music, starting the first biodiesel processing nonprofit in his home state of North Carolina, and more, which we'll hear about today. -Justin
