INDEX to PAST EPISODESEpisodes 1->87 // Episodes 88 (2018) -> current

The podcast is 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.

We interview people who we believe are contributing substantively to Earth’s full community of life — people who seek to live with sufficient rather than excessive incomes, who believe in democratic distribution of power, who seek right relationships between all species, and who work for healthy, balanced eco-regions. This OneEarth worldview is, we believe, infused with the sacred as expressed in diverse spiritualities.
