#70 The View from the Brink of Everything (with Parker Palmer)
Show Notes

My guest today is the wise, generous, courageous soul, Parker Palmer.  You'll hear him touch into his sense of how he was born into the world and how that shaped him moving through life. And how, at age 82, he continues to reckon with the big questions of who we are as a people and what it is to take a stand for what you believe in.

As he says in his most recent book, “Old is just another word for nothing left to lose. A time to take bigger risks on behalf of the common good.” What can those risks look like, both big and small?  What is it to invest ourselves, our bodies, our livelihood into ‘those things that we can't not do?’

To listen to this conversation is to take a small drink from a deep well of wisdom. May it nourish and sustain you as we all journey together towards the future.
