The Long View of Matthew Fox (#601H) Duration: 27:07 STEREO TVG

Other than Pope Francis, he would likely be the most widely-read Christian clergyman in the world...if he were still a clergyman. Matthew Fox was expelled from the Dominican Order for spreading boldly rambunctious ideas on God and worship that became beacons for millions on their spiritual path. Dr. Fox sits down with us for a memorable half hour.

Growing Food, Plants & People (#602H) Duration: 26:46 STEREO TVG

With less than 5% of the world's population, our country houses 22% of its prisoners. Would that change if ex-convicts had dignified, fairly-paid work? Two groups that train hard-time prisoners to grow food and to start and run plant-centered businesses are changing the future for ex-convicts, and beginning to change the shameful statistics.

Traveling with Purpose (#603H) Duration: 26:18 STEREO TVG

Plenty of American tourists want more than recreation and relaxation from their travels. They want to give back. That includes a pair of old friends who fell in love with Jamaica and convinced the island's largest resort chain to lodge hundreds of service volunteers every year, and a climber whose nearly-miraculous ascent of Everest spawned projects to save Nepal's poorest children. The world is their community.
