Men's Monday

  • Aired on Monday, December 11, 2017 Listen Now
    Dr. James McLeary discusses the making of "The Work". Set inside a single room in Folsom Prison, "The Work" follows three men from the outside as they participate in a four-day group therapy retreat with level-four convicts. Over the four days, each man in the room takes his turn at delving deep into his past. The raw and revealing process that the incarcerated men undertake exceeds the expectations of the free men, ripping them out of their comfort zones and forcing them to see themselves and the prisoners in unexpected ways. "The Work" offers a powerful and rare look past the cinder block walls to reveal a movement of change and redemption that transcends what we think of as rehabilitation.

Barbara, like many others, was born to fill the vacancy left by her little brother, who died at the age of two.

Thoughtful Thursday

  • Aired on Thursday, December 14, 2017 Listen Now

Nancy encourages listeners to reimagine and renew their lives and their place in the world by transforming patterns within thoughts, language, and behaviors―one person, one family, one community at a time.
