Sierra Leone is one of many places I traveled to throughout my career of making radio and sound and stories, and one of the topics of a talk I’m giving at Next Stage in Putney, Vermont on Monday, March 31. The talk is called “Listening Beneath the Noise”. Whether in post-conflict zones in West Africa and the Balkans, working with kids in America’s urban environment, or discovering new ideas here on Word of Mouth, I’ve come to consider listening to be a kind of lifeline.
“Listening Beneath the Noise” is about a lifelong pursuit of careful listening and what can come from it. You are warmly invited to come listen with me at Landmark College in Putney, Vermont.
