In the immortal words of Monty Python,

"And Now for Something

Completely Different"

 

Remember when you were an infant, and all the world was new and exciting?  

 

Remember those carefree days when there weren't any rules, when we used to just play for the fun of it?  

 

Remember that innocent sense of wonder, that unbridled expression of joy, that giggly exuberance...that freeform frolicking?

 

Of course you don't!  That's for kids!!

 

Or is it?

 

Shepherd Siegel PhD thinks it's time to play again.  He offers a radical idea to turn incivility on its head, and make life a lot more fun in the process.
 

In Episode 14,  NOW STREAMING, learn how!

As we seek ways of of restoring civility in American society, we are all focused on the horrendous humanitarian crisis in Ukraine.  What Putin is doing to that country and its courageous people is the extreme of incivility -- the utter absence of a shred of  decency and respect for our fellow human beings.  We are horrified, but also deeply moved by the way the world has come together to oppose this atrocity and support the brave people of that country.    

With the people of Ukraine in our hearts, we have added a HELP UKRAINE page, where you can find several ways to donate to the many humanitarian efforts now underway.  You can also find links to groups that will verify the validity of those charities, to make sure your contribution is going where you intend.

Please visit the page now and donate what you can.  

...and we could use your help too.

 This podcast is filling a glaring gap in intelligent, timely, content tailored to the underserved 55+ audience.  There's not much out there "by, for, and about" us.   We still care, we're not done yet -- we still have a lot to give.  We listen to our listeners -- CLICK HERE to  join the conversation.  Based on what our audience is telling us, Civility in America is in a dangerous state of decline, so we're working hard to find ways to turn that around, bringing you smart, engaging conversations that can help restore Civility to our country. 

We agree with our audience that Civility is a cause worth working for, and we want to make a difference, but to be honest, producing this podcast is a struggle.  Right now there are only two of us, and we could really use some help covering the costs. If  you agree with the goal and want to help keep this important conversation going, ,
