Humankind

Tuesdays, 7pm

Program Website: http://www.humanmedia.org/

Humankind presents riveting stories of everyday people who have found real purpose in life. Living by their principles—compassion, service, generosity, spirituality, equality and integrity—they make a profound difference in the quality of life in their communities. Hosted by award-winning producer David Freudberg, Humankind helps listeners examine some of humanity’s biggest questions and illuminates the lives of ordinary people who, by their example, can inspire us all.

May 5
SEGMENT 1: Medical reformer Rachel Naomi Remen explains a vision of the doctor-patient relationship, in which the patient is viewed not as “broken” or as a “victim,” but as someone whose strengths have not yet been fully uncovered.
SEGMENT 2: We hear excerpts from ‘Escape Fire,’ a powerful documentary, along with comments by its young director, Matthew Heineman, about the over-scheduled work day of doctors and how too many pharmaceuticals don’t make us better.

May 12
SEGMENT 1: We consider the value, sometimes underestimated, of having benign intentions toward others. Sharon Salzberg, a Buddhist teacher and author of 'Lovingkindness', shares an ancient technique to promote goodwill even for difficult people.
SEGMENT 2: A mother in Boston, who faced the horrific news that her 19 year old son was murdered in a home invasion, preaches forgiveness with accountability, a message she now incorporates in mediating conflicts among students in public schools.

May 19
SEGMENT 1: With the movement to “opt out” of high-stakes standardized tests gaining traction in schools among students, parents and educators, we consider alternative ways to evaluate when education is effective.
SEGMENT 2: We ponder the quiet beauty of urban trees, which improve health in high-emissions neighborhoods and which some environmentalists believe may be our “first line of defense” against greenhouse gases associated with climate change.

May 26
SEGMENT 1: Family therapist and Harvard lecturer Richard Weissbourd discusses how to help children find their moral compass, the 'achievement craze' that places intense pressure on young people, and parents' role in athletic activities.
SEGMENT 2: Former NY Times science correspondent Daniel Goleman, best-selling author of "Emotional Intelligence," discusses recent  findings that show the human brain is designed for social relations and that beneficial ones can enhance our health.

June 2
SEGMENT 1: Alcoholics Anonymous, which turns 80 this month, marks its beginning when one hopelessly addicted drunk realized that connecting with a fellow-sufferer would create a safe zone in which both could stop their downward spiral.
SEGMENT 2:  We examine the AA recovery principles that have promoted sobriety for millions of recovering alcoholics and have created a template to help people worldwide who struggle with many forms of addiction.

June 9
SEGMENT 1: The remarkable survival story of Bob Massie, an Episcopal minister who somehow walked through one life-threatening illness after another, and whose many challenges deepened his appreciation for life – and for the suffering of others.
SEGMENT 2: We hear from a Dr. Susan Bauer-Wu, a nurse scientist who has studied meditation as a health technique, and Pamela Post-Ferrante, a cancer survivor who teaches other patients about the value of therapeutic writing in expressing their inward feelings.

June 16
SEGMENT 1: The inspiring tale of a woman who felt called to help hungry people in New Jersey, initially by distributing food from her car and now, decades years later, her foodbank employs 200, is the size of 7 football fields and last year fed more than 900,000 people.
SEGMENT 2: Bay Area physician and Univ. of California medical professor Martin Rossman, author of 'The Worry Solution', describes ways to distinguish between what we can change and what we must learn to accept.

June 23
SEGMENT 1: We examine the power of fasting – a spiritual discipline practiced in many world religions to foster gratitude for the food we’re given and to encourage an understanding of people who suffer from hunger.
SEGMENT 2: We ponder the quiet beauty of urban trees, which improve health in high-emissions neighborhoods and which some environmentalists believe may be our “first line of defense” against greenhouse gases associated with climate change.

June 30
SEGMENT 1: The surprising power of imagining positive outcomes in life is explored by NY Times best-selling author David Allen who finds that  when people vividly picture the solutions to problems, it can reset their nervous system and remove self-imposed blockages.
SEGMENT 2: Afflicting one in five people, the condition of chronic pain is explored by patients attending a support group and by physician-author Margaret Caudill, who offers useful techniques based on a subtle understanding of the mind/body connection.
