100 Voices: Americans Talk About Change
"In this adaptation of her book 100 Voices: Americans Talk About Change, cultural psychologist Mary Clare hits the U.S. highways to begin her mission to talk with everyday Americans about change. Beginning with the prompt, “What does change mean to you?” this podcast miniseries takes listeners on the journey to listen to opinions and beliefs that stretch across a nation. Clare hosts and narrates the show, opening a door for dialogue across our differences and allowing her subjects the space to tell their stories. In a time of manic politics and the acute distortion of democracy, the show points back at us - the people of the United States. These voices call for the radical act of listening to one another. Here is a compelling adaptation of a book that arises directly from the cultural zeitgeist to guide the reclaiming of democracy.
In this premier episode, Mary begins with interviews in her hometown of Portland, OR and departs on her road trip, first moving towards Mt. Shasta and Northern California.
