Big Vision Podcast
Interviews with Individuals Creating Positive Change
If you've been listening to the last seven shows, they were all recorded between February and June 2006 and originally hosted on Gcast.  Now I'm done with the transfer of old interviews and we're on to the new!

I'm thrilled to have had an opportunity to interview Anna Lappe, the co-author of Grub: Ideas for an Urban Organic Kitchen with Bryant Terry, and co-author of Hope's Edge with her mother Frances Moore Lappe.  Anna is also a co-founder, with her mother, of the Small Planet Fund, and a founding principal of the Small Planet Institute, based in Cambridge Massachusetts.

Welcome Big Vision Podcast listeners new and old.  I am transferring my interviews over from Gcast, where I started posting the Big Vision podcast in February of 2006.  My first interview was with Alli Chagi-Starr.  Alli is the Art and Media Director of the Ella Baker Center for Human Rights' Reclaim the Future Program. Alli is also the co-founder of Art and Revolution, and founder of Art in Action, Dancers without Borders, and the Radical Performance Fest. In addition to being an artist, performer and dancer, Alli is also a writer, whose most recent piece can be found in the Code Pink anthology, Stop the Next War Now.
