Tonight’s broadcast is all about community. In that past we've discussed The Journey of the Hero, as outlined by Joseph Campbell’s seminal work, Hero With a Thousand Faces. For this episode we are going to focus on the final stage of any hero’s journey, in which the hero returns home. In other words, returns to his or her community. So, we’ll talk about the hero’s relation to his or her community, and the consequences for all parties involved if the hero decides to not return, what are the benefits of a hero’s return, the different types of communities, the importance of having others in our lives, the degradation of a community, and a few examples of community in literature, and the arts. Hosted by Jason Lawrence and David Levins.

In the second hour we will launch a new segment called the Writer's Block hosted by Bonnie Marlewski-Probert.  Bonnie will be discussing challenges faced by authors.  Tonight Bonnie will be discussing time management with her guest Lydia Gray.
