Episode 16: What Makes a Hero?

The sad news of actor Chadwick Boseman’s death from cancer on August 28 has us thinking about heroes: real-life and fictional, human and superhuman, the caring people closest to us and the change-makers we aspire to be.

Why do we look up to some people, and not others? How can we be more heroic ourselves?

In this episode, Noah Hawes talks with three creative and ambitious Cincinnati teens about Boseman’s movies, life, and positive impact on the world—plus the everyday people who lift them up.  

“To me, a hero is someone who cares for you… They don’t have to be perfect. There are heroes in our lives who fight battles we don’t know about.”
