Description

Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood was not a simple show. And Fred Rogers was not a simple man. He was radical. Spiritual. Revolutionary. Maybe even subversive. Bestselling author and cultural critic Carvell Wallace hosts this 10-part series about the life, thinking and work of Fred Rogers, and asks what the cardigan wearing host of a decades-old children's show can tell us about how to get by in today's chaotic world. Produced in partnership with Transmitter Media.

I kind of have the impression that these content creators are trying to turn Mr. Rogers into a left icon...... 😕

I was surprised to see comments from would- be listeners who tuned out early, calling this leftist propaganda. I guess they didn't understand Fred. There is nothing leftist about love and kindness. I'm saddened that you can't see what it really looks like.. 2 episodes in and moved to tears both times. Just wonderful!

I was really looking forward to hearing this..... until I heard the opening line. This podcast isn't about the amazing life of Fred Rogers; it's leftist propaganda.

Episode 1. At .50 into his commentary,he asks a question. A valid question? Or just his distorted view of this world. Please talk about our TV friend Fred. Not you.
