This talk show is a passion of mine and a labor of love--inspired by returning to college later in life. This show is my attempt to bridge the gap between academia and those who have not had the experience of higher education. For me, college is where my true education began! Prior to that, I had only an "operations manual" of life (what was expected of me, what wasn't--the conditioning by society of how I should fit in). Some of us never get beyond that "operations manual," and so don't realize the depth and breadth one's life can have. Going to college opened my eyes to a world I had no idea existed and to the myriad of choices I never imagined awaited me. It is my hope that through these scholarly conversations you will bridge to what is cutting edge knowledge right now, giving you some new insights and practical tools that can make a difference in your own life--well beyond that "operations manual.". This is the latest, college level information on how to connect with others in meaningful ways, and it is at a great price—free! For the 2013-2014 season I will cover some special stories. We all know most media covers gloom and doom on every channel because it sells. Yes, world-wide unrest abounds, yet so does world-wide hope. There is an alternative to the common news story theme of hopelessness and things getting worse. There are other stories...stories of great strides being made toward community and collaboration in many sectors...stories of hope and change...stories of courage and caring, even while to some, all seems lost. This 2013-2014 radio show season focuses on the positive shifts in thinking, doing, and being happening all over through intriguing, small start-ups and research projects. Join me and get inspired by hearing of some glorious new happenings that are shifting the current tired paradigm of gloom and doom to one of new ways of thinking and being in the world.
