Woody Tasch is founder and chairman of Slow Money, a 501(c)3 non-profit formed in 2008 to catalyze the flow of investment capital to small food enterprises and to promote new principles of fiduciary responsibility to support sustainable agriculture and the emergence of a restorative economy. He is also chairman emeritus of Investors' Circle, a non-profit network of investors that has facilitated the flow of $145 million to 220 sustainability-minded, early-stage companies and venture funds.

For most of the 1990s, Tasch was treasurer of the Jessie Smith Noyes Foundation, where he pioneered mission-related investing. He is an experienced venture-capital investor and entrepreneur, has served on numerous for-profit and non-profit boards, and was founding chairman of the Community Development Venture Capital Alliance, which supports venture investing in economically disadvantaged regions In 2010, Utne Reader named him one of “25 Visionaries Who Are Changing Your World.”

Tasch's new book, Inquiries into the Nature of Slow Money, is published by Chelsea Green.

Al Dean

Al grew up listening to the music of the 40’s on his father’s EH Scott radio and 78 records. Glenn Miller, Tommy Dorsey, Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald and Benny Goodman were family favorites. This is first experience in the broadcasting field and allows him to dig into his closet of old vinyls and share them with his audience on the Sunday afternoon edition of the Jazz Matinee.
