    The Common Good Podcast
    A Production of Jubilee Economics  

    Scroll down to LISTEN to episodes.

    SUBSCRIBE (free) by going to right hand column on this page, scroll down to “TCGP Subscription Options” and subscribe. We appreciate your interest and loyalty.

    Why do we produce TCGP? Because as an economy shaped by corporations and capital has gone global, the common good has more often suffered than benefitted. AND because the OneEarth economy we talk about (we often call it jubilee) is irrevocably committed to the common good.

    Begun in 2010, by Lee Van Ham and Ed Lucas, The Common Good Podcast (TCGP) is now directed by Lee Van Ham with Jerry Iversen as producer and co-host.

    Episodes feature conversations with people who are growing in the consciousness of living a OneEarth economy, meaning that they search for choices they can make daily to best fit their lives into the abundance of our one planet home. Interviewees talk about their workplace, congregation, organization, or personal lives.

    We interview people who we believe are contributing substantively to Earth’s full community of life — people who seek to live with sufficient incomes, fair access and distribution of power, and in right relationship with all species and with the planet. This OneEarth worldview is, we believe, infused with the sacred and expressed in diverse spiritualities.
