Episode 17 - Bo Rinaldi

When we started On The Block Radio, we made a list of all of the people we knew or knew about whose lives represent the very best of what transformation and elevated consciousness could be in the world. So far, we have been fortunate to have had many of those people on the show. Today, we add another name to that list. Bo Rinaldi is many things, but easy to define is not one of them. He has already managed to cram more into a single lifetime than many of us could in three lives. An entrepreneur,  angel investor, and lifelong activist, he is one of the originators of the organic food movement in this country and the former owner of the world-famous Blossoming Lotus restaurants. Now he has turned his attention to  the fuel industry. Bo lives by the mantra, "Food, Fuel and Fun." In this interview, you will see why. Here we discuss the origins of vegetarianism in the theories of the Greek philosopher Pythagoras, the time Peter Coyote called him to recruit him into the infamous Diggers, and how he has managed to stay an active and committed change agent for over 5 decades.
