Jon Dengler joins Not A Great Whisperer Podcast to talk about how WellBuilt Bikes got started and how the community can get involved. WellBuilt Bikes is a non-profit bike shop that was the first social enterprise started under The Well, a local non-profit. WellBuilt sells refurbished bikes at affordable prices and then invests the sales revenue into an “earn a bike” program so that those that lack money can access the transportation they need to get around town by putting in community service. Jon talks about the amazing work he does everyday to support others and what working with the “materially poor” really entails. He talks about taking bikes that aren’t valued and people that aren’t valued and realize that there’s a lot of value in both of those things. Jon discusses his religious experience one night in college, after he ate a bunch of LSD. He has never been the same since and got into philosophy and religious studies. He is intriguing and inspiring. Jon hosts his own podcast The Work Ethic that you need to check out. Find out how you can get involved at www.bikeshoptampa.com and on IG @johnnyproduce. Enjoy the real, unedited conversation with Katy and Jon.
