    Roadtrip Nation [#1108H] The Long Road Home After 34 interviews and several thousand miles on the odometer, it's the end of the road and the road-trippers have one interview left. In Milwaukee, WI, they interview Will Allen, founder and CEO of Growing Power, a nonprofit that proves local food systems can create jobs, improve the health of the community, fight racism, and bring urban and rural communities together. Will shares his journey from sharecroppers' son to basketball player and back to farming. He poses the question, "How do you stay energized?" and responds that you have to be passionate, and you must have the patience to put in the hard work to truly reach that point of passion where the hours fly by.
    As the road-trippers get back in the RV, they reflect on stories and lessons from the road. Tele'jon follows the common threads that connect the Leaders' experiences and truly understands what it means to say that everything is possible. Olivia has newfound confidence that there's no such thing as a mistake. There's no wrong thing you can do, so do everything. Ed vows to leave his safety net and come to the edge and jump. "I've found a new world and a new way of living," he says, "and I like it." At the airport, Olivia, Tele'jon and Ed say their last goodbyes and move ahead, determined to take advantage of everything the road has shown them.

    Global Spirit [#205] The Search for God The search for God is perhaps the oldest of all spiritual quests. While the Abrahamic faiths place the concept of "God" as an entity separate from and above man, indigenous peoples tend to understand God or "Creator" as an integral, indivisible aspect of life, or nature. Some non-theistic faiths, such as Buddhism, focus not on a deity, but on a transcendent quality or attribute that the Buddha attained, such as compassion or enlightenment. This program brings together two teachers from different faiths that have devoted their lives and teachings to the concept of "God" or "ultimate reality". Dr. Jacob Needleman is an author and professor of Philosophy, who meets for the first time, Pir Zia Inayat-Khan, a scholar and teacher of Islam and Sufism in the lineage of his father, Pir Vilayat Khan and his grandfather, Hazrat Inayat Khan. duration 57:38   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)
