I came across this podcast looking for interviews with David Whyte. I love it! Michael Lerner is very intelligent and a good interviewer and 90% of the guests are interesting. They do really good work at Commonweal.

A Real Gem

These are very high quality and relevant talks facilitated by Michael Lerner, one of the founders of Commonweal. Michael brings a deep understanding of the connections between personal and planetary healing to these interviews. He finds interesting and innovative people and every one of them is worth listening to!

One of the best resources on the Web today

Over the last several weeks I have been listening to a number of these New School netcasts .  Commonweal co-founder, Michael Lerner, is in my experience the most effective interviewer on the internet today.  He brings a depth of knowledge to each encounter that is at times astonishing; yet he manages to keep the focus on his guests and their particular (and considerable) expertise. I invite and encourage everyone who reads this review to download these netcasts and listen to them at your leisure. (BTW I learned recently from Michael's interview with Peter Kingsley that our English word "school" comes from the Greek word, schole (σχολή), which means leisure.)  Check out all that The New School has to offer!

A Wonderful Collection From Some Incredible People

This new podcast from the folks at The New School at Commonweal presents a number of thoughtful, in depth conversations with some of today's best thinkers, activists, environmentalists and other problem solvers. Many of these episodes are hosted by Michael Lerner, founder of Commonweal and have provided me with hours of informative and inspirational material. I'm very happy that these conversations are being released to a wider audience. Our planet and societies need more input from and awareness of these people and their efforts to exact change.
