The Call in with Jivika Rajani December 6, 2017

The best thing about doing radio is you get to meet some of the coolest people on the planet and when it is someone doing something extraordinary that is icing on the cake.

This we we learned about a bootcamp for high school students to help them learn to be social entrepreneurs.

Jivika Rajani the woman behind www.Aspir8.org was in the studio to share the story.


Here is what you will learn about Jivika and Aspir8 from her website.
Rajani anticipates students will gain in-depth exposure to principles of social entrepreneurship, learn lessons from successes as well as failures of social initiatives started by other young entrepreneurs, and also have the opportunity to form teams and pitch their own ideas for projects that can make a difference in their schools and/or wider communities.
She’ll develop the camp curriculum with renowned social entrepreneur Scott Sherman of the Transformative Action Institute (who is at the Kravis Leadership Institute at Claremont McKenna College). She also is partnering with Teach For India in Pune and a network of international schools in Dubai to recruit student participants.

The reason for choosing the UAE and India as her boot camp locations is personal. She spent most of her childhood in Dubai and has worked in and visits Pune every year, where her grandparents live.

The Show Notes.


  • When I go over 80 kmh and until 120kmh I get a wobble of the steering wheel any ideas?
  • The car backfires when I turn it off any idea why.
  • How often should headlights last on a car? I replace one or the other yearly.
  • Saw more cars overheating today when is it safe to fill the rad with new water?
  • What is the difference between a turbocharger and a supercharger does one require less maintenance?
  • What is the difference between torque and BHP
  • Is there a different smell for a transmission and brakes burning or do they smell the same?
  • I have a 2000 lincoln navigator, V8 5.4ltr suv. down shifted to drive but cannot shift back to park. so I cannot turn ignition off or back up any idea what is going on.
  • My car has 70k miles on it and is an automatic trans. It has aftermarket underglow which includes a ton of aftermarket wiring underneath the car. A few months ago, I borrowed my car to a friend for a night out and they ran over a construction barrier and shattered a underglow bulb underneath the car. When this happened, obviously the underglow stopped working completely. But along with this my dash lights and brake lights stopped working. The running lights work on the back but not the break lights. The hazards and blinkers work also, but still no break lights. I'm just wondering what the problem could be?
