What we discuss

We talk about: Saul's journey has been far from easy, we talk through his ups and downs. We also discuss: the power of vulnerability, how we can be effective advocates for social change, how we might find the issues we really want to advocate on, and what an effective democracy looks like, and how best involve minorities/diversity of perspectives in this process
