    Ep 1: What is Community? Fantasy vs. Reality

    Ep 1: What is Community? Fantasy vs. Reality

    Hello friends and welcome to the Inside Community Podcast where I bring you along for an inside look at what it takes to create and sustain community.  In this first episode we are going to take a look at what we actually mean when we say "community." This episode is going to cover a lot of the basics, but we will also get into some of the projections, fantasies and realities of what community is.  So whether you are new to this topic or someone who's been wondering if community is right for you… hopefully you’ll all find some useful nuggets here!

This is long overdue

There is so much wisdom in the communities movement and Rebecca is audacious and bold enough to tap into it. Bravo to all involved. This is off to a great start.

Interesting and unique

I just finished listening to the trailer and opening episodes. I have not seen any other podcast that explores living in community in this way. Rebecca sounds very open, sincere, and friendly - and her journey sounds fascinating! I subscribed and I can’t wait to learn more about community from this expert and the people that she will be interviewing!
