One of my favorite podcasts!
A friend of mine told me about the Metta Center and I found this podcast through their website. I've listened to several episodes. The hosts are knowledgeable and engaging and the content is insightful and inspiring. They often have good guests who add great perspectives and knowledge to the conversation. Every time I listen learn something valuable and I feel more empowered to make a difference in the world through nonviolent action. This is an excellent show and it holds a place of honor among my subscriptions.
Thoughts on the podcast
