How do we speak to and listen to our children ?  Wade Bergner discovered a shocking statistic that children hear the word “Don’t” about 150,000 times by the time they’re 18 years old but only hear about 2,000 words of encouragement.   Prompted by that, his own sons’ growing into young men, and his personal midlife reassessment, he wrote The Bird Ride, a sweet and literally eye opening beautifully illustrated children’s book.  Listen and learn from this first-time writer on his first ever interview.  He’s doing well !   The Bird Ride published by Winds of Change Press.  bergnerbooks.com

We explore the art of screenwriting with filmmaker Arthur Kanegis, writer, editor and producer of The World is My Country currently airing on many PBS stations. Arthur discovered and chronicled the fascinating, almost-lost story of fearless “world citizen #1“ Garry Davis who gave up his American citizenship and passport after World War II to pursue a world without boundaries.  Davis gained enormous support including from Albert Einstein and especially Eleanor Roosevelt who challenged him to help create The Universal Declaration of Human Rights theworldismycountry.com/trailer  futurewave.org
