How do we engage our sense of hearing to influence communities, both local and global? So put the kettle on and join in the conversation. I am your host Rebecca Budd and I’m looking forward to sharing this moment with you.

When I first started to blog, and now podcast, I thought it was all about writing and commenting. Over the months, I have come understand that it is more about listening to the voices in the community. Listening is dynamic, not static. It is a powerful activity that can influence outcomes and institute radical change. Speaking and writing can only take us part of the way. Listening is the dimension where next steps are formulated.
Each voice is extraordinary, but when combined in a choir, there is a symphony of elegant and beautiful possibilities. A last thought come from Ernest Hemingway:
“I like to listen. I have learned a great deal from listening carefully. Most people never listen.”
