Pop Culture with Values

Batstone also spoke in chapel. Both men have been involved in efforts to use popular culture to speak to important questions about values in our society, and they plan to collaborate on several films.

Batstone is the author of “Saving the Corporate Soul,” which outlines eight principles for creating and preserving wealth and well-being without selling out. Crisman has produced more than 60 hours of documentaries. He is known for his investigative and award-winning films about controversial public-interest issues.
