People are ready to go deeper, be more truthful, and face challenges that confront us in more meaningful ways. We need to talk about causes and not just symptoms, face some inconvenient truths, and have more than prepackaged conversations among us. One question weaves through The Marianne Williamson Podcast - how did we get to where we are, and how can we change things now?

The Privatization of Everything: A conversation with author Donald Cohen
Should government be run like a business? No, says Donald Cohen, the founder and executive director of In The Public Interest and author of the book “The Privatization of Everything: How the Plunder of Public Goods Transformed America and How We Can Fight Back"
In this episode, Marianne & Donald go deep into the insidious ways that private industry exerts undue influence on our government. These interests “strip public goods of their power to lift people up, creating instead a tool to diminish democracy, further inequality, and separate us from each other.”

Freeing Jesus: A Conversation with religious scholar Diana Butler Bass
“Get me out of here.” Five simple words religious scholar Diana Butler Bass heard repeatedly while sitting in a pew at the National Cathedral in Washington, DC. But why? And who was whispering this to her? Jesus. And she writes about why in her latest book, Freeing Jesus: Rediscovering Jesus as Friend, Teacher, Savior, Lord, Way, and Presence
Diana and Marianne discuss what Jesus means to them individually and the importance of freeing him from the confines of doctrine and dogma. As Diana says, “When I think of Jesus I think of wisdom. I think of embodied compassion. I think of this incredible vision of justice.”

Thank God for Marianne Williamson
Please don’t ever stop doing this podcast. I don’t ever want it to end because it simply gets me through my days. Every topic & subject that Marianne approaches is not only thoughtful and intelligent, but so deeply important. Her compassion, spiritualism, politics, and deep sense of morality and justice is a great compass and road map for these times. Each episode moves me and makes me think greater and deeper. I couldn’t be more touched and glad for someone’s presence in our world. Thank you Marianne; you are a wonderful light, healer, and teacher. And we are so lucky to have you.
Wisdom, and we need more of it
Marianne Williamson does not dumb it down for us. She also does not soften hard truths, like our climate crisis which is urgent and essential. I appreciate her respect for her audience. This is unlike any other podcast. An A+ from me. So glad I found this.
