    Calling All Citizens: Your Voice Should Be Heard – A Look at Participatory Democracy and Civic Virtue with Shmuel Lederman, PhD

    Calling All Citizens: Your Voice Should Be Heard – A Look at Participatory Democracy and Civic Virtue with Shmuel Lederman, PhD

    Do you feel like your voice is heard? Do your elected representatives hear, understand, and address the issues that relate directly to your life?
    If not, join the crowd. But why is this, and what can be done about it?
    Ready for an eye-opening discussion that might just turn your perception of democracy on its head?
    You’ll explore:
    What it would look like to have a radically participatory democracy The intersection of municipal budget talks, justice, and morality Unexpected consequences of council democracy, including giving minorities more of a voice Shmuel Lederman, PhD is a research fellow in the Weiss-Livnat International Center for Holocaust Research and Education at the University of Haifa. His primary interest lies in the study of council democracy, wherein any and all citizens from the neighborhood level come together to debate, deliberate, and act together on matters that concern them, and then choose a representative to go to the upper council and parliament.
    In short, rather than a parliament elected by vote, there’s a parliament elected by a pyramid of delegates, starting at the neighborhood level.
    Learn how his form of traditional participatory democracy can give more power to minorities, promote civic virtue, bring fellow citizens closer together, emphasize the role of morality in budget decision-making, and more.
    Tune in for the full conversation.

    Breaking Down The Study Of Bones And Skeletons With Jay Villemarrete

    It’s fascinating to consider the fact that all animals share the similarity of having a skeletal system of one sort or another. Having this commonality unites us all in a way, which piques the interest of people like Jay Villemarette.
    Mr. Villemarette is the founder of Skulls Unlimited. He has been captivated by skulls since an early age, and this fueled his desire to start Skulls Unlimited, which eventually gave way to the founding of The Museum of Osteology in Oklahoma City, OK. 
    Tune in now to hear Jay discuss:
    How and why he had a replica of his own skull made. Where Skulls Unlimited gets their skeletons from.  What the process of removing the soft tissue from bones looks like.  To learn more about Jay and his work with skulls, visit www.skullsunlimited.com and www.skeletonmuseum.com.

    Winning the Game of Life with Bestselling Author John Strelecky

    Winning the Game of Life with Bestselling Author John Strelecky

    When introduced to a new game, the first questions we ask are, “What are the rules?” and “How do you win?”
    But what about the game of life? There’s no rulebook, and no clear answer for how to “win” or what that even means.
    Press play to explore ideas like:
    Why people tend to follow the same trend of school, work, and retirement at age 65, and how to truly optimize the experience of life Whether it’s the act of dying that people fear, or not having lived the life they wanted to live How the patterns developed and learned in childhood shape the way many people live the rest of their lives The connection between recognition and productivity in the workplace How to learn from every other creature on the planet Why are you here in this life, and how can you win at it?
    John Strelecky found it curious that throughout his entire education, not one person asked him that question. So, he asked himself that question. Finding the answer would mean leaving behind a successful career in his early thirties and backpacking the world to explore other cultures, ways of living, and the diversity of awe-inspiring animals across the globe.
    This incredible experience compelled him to write The Café on the Edge of the World, a now #1 bestselling book. It’s the result of a 21-day stream-of-consciousness writing adventure, during which Strelecky says “It felt like the words were coming from somewhere else through me onto the pages.”
    When the first editor who read it said, “This little book has changed my life,” Strelecky knew he was on the right path.
    Tune in to hear this fascinating and thought-provoking conversation … and maybe change your life as a result.
