Episode 101 Paul K. Chappell is the Peace Leadership Director of the Nuclear Age Peace Foundation, an Iraq War veteran, West Point graduate, international speaker, and author of six books.

Nobel Peace Prize laureate Archbishop Desmond Tutu has said of him, “Paul K. Chappell has given us a crucial look at war and peace from the unique perspective of a soldier, and his new ideas show us why world peace is both necessary and possible in the 21st century. The End of War can help people everywhere understand why war must end, and how together we can end it.”

A recent event in Paso Robles, CA, was co-sponsored by Paso Peace Community, Members of the North County Clergy Group, Rotary International PeaceBuilders, and Nuclear Age Peace Foundation.

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.
