Makes me think

Listen to this podcast on the way to work every morning. A quick 30-60 minutes of dialogue that gets my brain turning! Keep up the great work Torrence!

Exactly what we need!

This podcast achieves what it says it does. It brings people together for hard conversations but does it with open, honest, acceptance of others’ ideas. With all of the decisiveness in today’s world, Torrence finds ways to suggest ideas that most of us as caring, reasonable people could at least give honest thought to if not agree with. A new way to discuss the issues. See the other as a person and not the enemy.
