On this week's episode of the AshokaTECH Podcast, host Alex Budak interviews social entrepreneur Howard Weinstein, who is giving the gift of hearing to thousands in the developing world.  Batteries for hearing aids cost about $1US per week, which can be incredibly cost-prohibitive.  Weinstein developed an innovative way of recharging the hearing aids through solar power, reducing cost dramatically and allowing thousands to use hearing aids when they otherwise would not be able to do so.
