Are you Listening?
We’re searching for hope, we’re fighting for change, we’re learning new tactics and strategies, and we’re uniting to make a difference together.
Activists, journalists, citizens, and revolutionaries are creating podcasts to discuss issues that concern us all, and the innovative ways that people are addressing them.
Podcasts to the Rescue
Podcasts are basically like radio shows that you can listen to at any point once they are released. They are typically listened to through your mobile device, often on people’s commute, during cooking or chores, or at the gym.
Many include long form conversations with thought leaders about pertinent issues, interlaced with interviews of people involved in the movement, with thoughtful reflections, resources to plug into, and often laughter or inspiration throughout.
Here is a list of 25 Podcasts focused on some of the values that FIC holds dear: sustainability, cooperation, and social justice, including efforts in cooperative economics, activism, and experiments to live more resiliently:
