It’s A Question Of Balance ® radio show balances the intellectual with the creative, exploring whether we have more in common than divides us through thought-provoking conversations – out and about with people on the street on different topics, and in the studio with inspiring guests from the arts. Balance is not a compromise. Balance is truth distilled from many places creating cohesive understanding.
Topic: Out And About – Conversations with People on the Street about Questions That Matter: How Can We Unite?
Would you like to see the USA more united? Unity ‘is the state of different areas or groups being joined together to form a single country or organization.’ We have the United States. The dictionary also says ‘When there is unity, people are in agreement and act together for a particular purpose.’ Is there a shared goal big enough the American people can unite behind to make us overlook our differences? Ruth Copland goes Out and About to get opinions on the street. Are we all in this together to solve our problems, is the answer in working collaboratively – or do you think it’s more a case of the ones who have it ‘right’ finally convincing the ones who don’t? Is part of why we are not united because we don’t see our interdependence? Or that we’ve stopped giving respect to our idealogical adversaries? What do you think? Listen to the conversations and decide if and how we can unite.
In Out And About we consider topics with local relevance and global significance. The idea is to get us thinking about the questions that affect us all – to stimulate new thinking, or clarify what we already feel. To hear how other people’s opinions may differ from or be similar to our own.
“It’s A Question of Balance ® so rare among radio talk shows, lets its subjects breathe. With her discursive style and pleasingly eccentric range of curiosity, host Ruth Copland each week treats her listeners to two hours of Whole Brain Radio.”
