While they originally thought it be a one-off thing at the time, Team Broken Earth has since expanded its chapters nationwide and is currently doing relief work in Guatemala, Haiti, Nepal, Bangladesh, Nicaragua, and Ethiopia. In this interview, Dr. Rideout shared his background, Team Broken Earth’s accomplishments, and goals for the future.
