When We Talked

When We Talked

2020-10-0334:59

The end of spring and the beginning of summer 2020 seem like a long time ago. It was when we -- a group of white, suburban people, at the suggestion of a black friend -- began to talk about racism: how we knew about it, how we experienced being in the racial majority growing up and what we thought should be done about it now. I interviewed two members of that biweekly Saturday morning group, during the summer of 2020, along with a 20-year old Brooklyn College student (my son) who provides a younger (fresher?) perspective on the same issues.
Is Divorce The Worst?

Is Divorce The Worst?

I interview children's book author Anastasia Higgenbotham -- a brave soul who doesn't flinch from topics adults would rather not discuss -- about the necessary differences between how children and adults process divorce.More about Anastasia can be found here: https://anastasiahigginbotham.com/

Current: Mitch Sumner

2020-11-2134:57

Mitch Sumner, a young Hudson Valley musician, multi-instrumentalist and singer, is featured, along with his new album, CURRENT.  Mitch's music defies easy categorization; it cuts across the decades in its use of sounds, layered harmonies, swooping Hammond organ, hot percussion and dreamlike vocal melodies. Mitch spoke to me about his influences, his formative years and how he puts it all together. https://www.youtube.com/mitchsumnerhttps://www.instagram.com/mitchsumnermusichttps://www.facebook.com/mitchsumnermusicTo buy his album: https://songwhip.com/mitchsumner/current                                                                     orhttps://mitchsumner.bandcamp.com

Want Hope?

Want Hope?

2020-08-1940:04

A most hopeful discussion with the recently graduated senior class President of Warwick High School, in which experiences around racism, the intersection of conservative, libertarian and liberal democratic values and this country's history are factored in. (Oh yes; country music, too.) Vidar Hageman is a strongly positive voice for a generation of pandemic-graduating high schoolers. As he heads off to college, hear his thoughts re: a honest reckoning with American history, patriotism and the benefits of cutting across political divisions by finding what to respect -- and remind people of -- in all of us. 
In which an attempt is made to discuss larger implications of anti-racism work and the discovery is made that you can't talk meaningfully about the politics of it without talking about our lives in it. One woman's (Jamie Munkatchy's) journey from her segregated, white-Anglo upbringing in El Paso, Texas to progressive politics in New York City and the suburbs is highlighted. 
Who Are We Again??

Who Are We Again??

2020-07-0128:16

Reflections about our country's birthday, growing up white, stories our ethnic-groups-of-origin tell us about ourselves and our country and the blinders we wear when it comes to recognizing, and supporting, black people who've been in this country hundreds of years before us. Contributions Relational Life Therapy can make towards understanding our own racist ways and beginning to move past them.

A Tipping Point?

A Tipping Point?

2020-06-0938:31

My guest is Anastasia Shown, a lecturer/global educator who has worked at the University of Pennsylvania and in Ghana, Cameroon & Ethiopa for many years. She joins me for a discussion about racism, the implications of the events of early June 2020 following the murder of George Floyd, in which tens of thousands of people of all races marched and protested in towns and cities across the United States and the world, demanding an end to white supremacy.
A consideration of what is hurting us now, as Americans, with some hints of how to begin on a path of healing. Thinking about the reckoning that is coming. 
This episode considers the future as constructed by three sci-fi/dystopian fiction writers; myself (author of CONVERGENCE), Katie Delahanty (author of KEYSTONE), and educator/author Erika Kane (author of SELAH & THE BLOOD BARRENS). What's already come true? Why, and how, can a bleak future be written about when we're in the middle of a fairly bleak present-time? Should we all be writing comedies?For more info:KEYSTONE: https://www.katiedelahanty.com/CONVERGENCE: https://rusa-ie.com/
The Power of Pizza

The Power of Pizza

2020-04-2834:04

Pizza is transformative. This episode looks at the effect pizza has had on several people's lives, including Long Islanders and New Yorkers. Discussion of regional variations of pizza are included, but the focus comes back to how involvement with pizza transforms one man's life and brings about business opportunities that he could only have barely imagined as a hard-working 15-year-old. The self-soothing nature and timelessness of two slices and a beverage of your choice are reaffirmed and offered up as a reminder of hope in tough times. 
Beyond The Tough Guy

Beyond The Tough Guy

2020-04-2128:55

How do guys learn how to treat each other? Are we doomed to remain 9th graders far into our adult years? Or can people change (even WITHOUT therapy)??? In this episode I go back to interview the person whom I was intimidated by 51 years ago, in the hallways of high school. What had been going on? And what has gone on since?If you are in need of some hope and inspiration, look no further than today's episode. www.thesandsoftime.net
Finding Mr. Handler

Finding Mr. Handler

2020-04-1338:22

In which I return to the world of high school and a beloved teacher (Mr. Handler), circa 1970's. Memories are shared with someone else who was a student of his, and the ups and downs of high school are briefly considered by people who ended up the lucky recipients of healthy, mind and soul-expanding examples of living. Best of all, I get to interview Mr. Handler at age 94.
