Krista Tippett on Sounds True

Most people do not listen with the intent to understand; they listen with the intent to reply.

- Stephen Covey -

Krista Tippett on Sounds True

In this interview with award-winning journalist and author Krista Tippet, she shares insights on journalism as a force for progress, beginning, first, with a good question and active listening: "Good listening starts even before words begin to be spoken, even before we speak the question. It starts with the invitation we create, the way we create the invitation, the space we create. If it's not trustworthy, if people think they've been brought in to be set up or to be -- if people feel like they're on the defensive or they have to explain themselves, then no matter how good my questions are, I haven't established a space in which I can be a good listener or really draw them out in a meaningful way." Tippet continues to share insights about hope, mindfulness, and the mechanics of social change. { read more }

Madrid's Robin Hood Restaurants

You have not lived today until you have done something for someone who can never repay you.


- John Bunyan -

Madrid's Robin Hood Restaurants

"It is early evening at a restaurant in central Madrid and Jose Silva sits down for a meal of rice, meatballs and vegetables as waiters flit from one table to another. All very normal, except for one crucial detail: Silva, 42, cannot afford to pay. He lives rough under the platform of a cable car station in Madrids sprawling Casa del Campo park, one of dozens of homeless people who have started dining for free at the Robin Hood restaurant that earlier opened this month." Learn more about this innovative restaurant started by a beloved, 79-year-old rebel priest. { read more }
