Immense Possibilities  
  • The Long View of Matthew Fox
    Thursday, July 18
    10:00 pm on UEN-TV 9.1
    Other than Pope Francis, he would likely be the most widely-read Christian clergyman in the world...if he were still a clergyman. Matthew Fox was expelled from the Dominican Order for spreading boldly rambunctious ideas on God and worship that became beacons for millions on their spiritual path. Dr. Fox sits down with us for a memorable half hour.

  • Growing Food, Plants & People
    Thursday, July 25
    10:00 pm on UEN-TV 9.1
    With less than 5% of the world's population, our country houses 22% of its prisoners. Would that change if ex-convicts had dignified, fairly-paid work? Two groups that train hard-time prisoners to grow food and to start and run plant-centered businesses are changing the future for ex-convicts, and beginning to change the shameful statistics.

  • Traveling with Purpose
    Thursday, August 1
    10:00 pm on UEN-TV 9.1
    Plenty of American tourists want more than recreation and relaxation from their travels. They want to give back. That includes a pair of old friends who fell in love with Jamaica and convinced the island's largest resort chain to lodge hundreds of service volunteers every year, and a climber whose nearly-miraculous ascent of Everest spawned projects to save Nepal's poorest children. The world is their community.

  • Story and Youth
    Thursday, August 8
    10:00 pm on UEN-TV 9.1
    Some children find their voice quickly and easily. Many don't. We sample Earth Seasoned, a new film about four girls who lived a full year out in Oregon's rugged Cascade Mountains, and talk with a founder of the Heartisan Foundation, where youngsters are led to understand the stirring power of their own personal stories.

  • Dying Well
    Thursday, August 15
    10:00 pm on UEN-TV 9.1
    Death is coming out of the closet. The maker of the new documentary Living While Dying shares her stories of the final days of four men. Then a hospice pioneer and a one-of-a-kind chaplain help us understand how profoundly the acceptance of death's inevitable place in the circle of life can enrich the days that remain.

  • Not as Divided as You Think: Quiet Cooperation on Climate
    Thursday, August 22
    10:00 pm on UEN-TV 9.1
    We're told we're hopelessly divided on issues of climate change, up to and including whether it actually exists. Our three guests, working everyday with business and community leaders, the clergy and national politicians of both parties, have a much different and more hopeful story: we could be on the brink of huge positive change.

  • A Woman Takes On An Industry
    Thursday, August 29
    10:00 pm on UEN-TV 9.1
    Common wisdom about the 1979 Three Mile Island nuclear accident is that we dodged a bullet. That's not the view of hundreds of nearby residents who've since developed radiation-related cancers. One of them brings us material from her in-progress documentary Meltdown, the first step of her nearly single-handed stand against the nuclear power industry.

  • Story and Race
    Thursday, September 5
    10:00 pm on UEN-TV 9.1
    Seminars, rallies, academic papers, scholarly books, earnest roundtable discussions-none of them has taken us to deep and satisfying understanding of our racial differences. Can storytelling? Our guests, including the co-author of Story Bridge, help us see how that old art form can dissolve the fear and defensive blocks that get in our way.

  • The True Rights of Communities
    Thursday, September 12
    10:00 pm on UEN-TV 9.1
    When Thomas Linzey's clients across rural America asked why they couldn't stop industrial hog farms from devastating their communities, he could give them a legal but not a reasonable answer. So he started a legal defense fund to support communities fighting for the rights and authority they had before a century of court decisions gave corporations almost limitless siting power. This episode goes to the root of things.

  • Children Demanding A Future
    Thursday, September 19
    10:00 pm on UEN-TV 9.1
    Do children have standing to sue governments for severely damaging their future by ignoring the clear dangers of climate change? One federal court, hearing the case brought by Our Children's Trust, says they might. We talk to OCF's founder and two young plaintiffs to find out about a struggle that could change more than we can easily imagine.

  • Does Earth Day Still Matter?
    Thursday, September 26
    10:00 pm on UEN-TV 9.1
    It's been nearly fifty years since a fiery young man named Denis Hayes organized a wildly ambitious new project called "Earth Day." Now Denis sits down with us to reflect on how it spawned America's environmental movement, and to preview the March for Science he's organized for this year's Earth Day on April 22.
