Summertime! Summertime! Where we've been...where we're going

I am so glad you’re catching our current season about “radicals”-- Radical actions, radical system change and the people who are making it happen right now:

In the workplace--if you’re still catching up, check out my conversations with Katie Bethel of Paid Leave for the US & Morgan Mercer who is using Virtual Reality to end sexual harassment...

Or if government policy is your thing—you’ll love hearing from the team experimenting with Basic Income in Stockton, CA...and don’t miss Shannon Watts the founder of Moms Demand Action whose gun sense movement used the power of moms to go from from Facebook Page to front page news...

And don’t miss my live conversations with activists—Gloria Steinem, and with Eve Ensler about the radically transformative power of apology.

Plus hear from Jennifer Weiner, whose new book “Mrs Everything” asks who’s really making women’s choices? Are we--or our system?”

All that is in the feed right now!

Coming up I have a couple of special summer-swap episodes from podcasters I admire who have covered topics that tie in with what I cover here on Inflection Point. They’ll appear in your feed on the same schedule as always--every other Wednesday morning!

I have 3 things to ask of you to keep us all rising up: 1) Thinking about women rising up, social change and the quest for equality....What or who do you want to learn about in the next season? How can we help you be the change? Let me know on my contact page at

Second thing...We are an independent production out of KALW in San Francisco and PRX. That means that MOST of the funding for this show comes from you, my dear listeners. So I’m asking for your support right now to help me produce the next season of Inflection Point with as much as you can give--whether it’s $10 or $100 or $1000. Here’s how: just go to our support page and give what you can. As a sponsored project of Fractured Atlas, your donation is now tax deductible and covers hard costs like studio time, transcripts and editing. If you are already contributing, thank you!

If you have a donor-advised fund or employer match, we can accept those contributions too!

Third... Not in a position to give money? I get that....Support the show with a review on Apple Podcasts, Stitcher or where ever you listen.

And last but not least, for the readers out there...I have a whole page on my website featuring the books of people who have been on Inflection Point this season and all seasons past. If you are looking for a good read, you will find it at

With all that teed up for you, it’s time for me to take a wee break to reflect on everything we’ve heard so far, to work on the next season for you--and yes to try and relax for a minute in this crazy time we live in.

As always, thanks for listening! This is Inflection Point and this is how women rise up.
