Episode 98 [8/1] — Vicki Robin, co-author of the classic, Your Money or Your Life; founder of the Simplicity Forum.
Since I talked to Vicki in Ep. 17 upon the release of her then new book “Blessing the Hands That Feed Us: Lessons from a 10-Mile Diet,” she has had a political awakening. She has stood with the Native Americans at Standing Rock protesting the construction of the XL Pipeline, and other actions.
Since her classic with Joe Dominguez, “Your Money or Your Life: 9 Steps to Transforming Your Relationship with Money and Achieving Financial Independence,” she has written or co-authored numerous offshoots, such “Freedom Through Frugality.” The updated, revising edition, called Ultimate MakeOver — is scheduled for release in March, 2018. She actively posts on Facebook and at her soon-to-appear new site VickiRobin.com.
We talk too about her part in the Local Food Summit, which launched August 6. Sign up for the Summit for limited time free access to 60+ stellar interviews with food system researchers, producers and change makers.

Episodes 96 & 97: Shane Claiborne of The Simple Way and Red Letter Christians, author of the classic Irresistible Revolution and more recently Executing Grace, How the Death Penalty Killed Jesus and Why It’s Killing Us
Who’s Shane Claiborne? From working alongside Mother Teresa in Calcutta to founding The Simple Way in inner city Philadelphia, Shane is a bestselling author, renowned activist, sought-after speaker, and self-proclaimed “recovering sinner.”
Now, in part one we catch up on The Simple Way community and the newer Red Letter Christians movement.
In part two we talk about Shane’s latest book, “Executing Grace: How the Death Penalty Killed Jesus and Why It’s Killing Us” and numerous other ways he’s spreading the message of simpler, just living.
Tony & Shane UNCUT, the complete dialog in eight episodes between Tony Campolo and Shane Claiborne on simpler living and global justice, became the DVD “Simply Enough,” re-issued by World Vision Canada as “Choose Justice.”
