EcoMind & Frances Moore Lappeé are the Blue Plate Specials on "LUNCH W LOUDEN" | Podcast via Coffee Party Radio

Frances Moore Lappe' is the blue plate special on LUNCH WITH LOUDEN (Thursdays at Noon Pacific Time).

Well known for her book, Diet for a Small Planet, we will begin with her most recent work, EcoMind: Changing the Way We Think to Create the World We Want.

EcoMind addresses “thought leaps” that help reframe how we approach the problem solving required to address the issues of today’s world.

For instance, one thought leap we can make is in HOW we grow, not to stop growing. Another is our thinking about consumerism.  How can this new thinking impact what is important to you?

Join us today for an hour-long conversation with thought-leader, democracy advocate and author, Frances Moore Lappe’.

Code Words & Trust - The Blue Plate Special on LUNCH WITH LOUDEN

Thursday’s show was originally going to be about code-words and talking points: do they help or interfere with our ability to talk to one another?  Do they increase or decrease trust?

Then September 11th brought attacks in Egypt and Libya, and the explosion of code talk made this topic even more important. It is easy to find articles that “interpret” Obama’s words or “explain” Romney’s words. OMG.  

In our 24/7 news cycle, we are often not given the time to absorb events, process our grief and then rationally decide our next steps.  Grieving is NOT the time to decide what to do.  Yet we are prevented from moving from anger to acceptance.

Do you know CODE?  Can you explain the value of secret meanings to everyday words like “patriot,” and how did “fact check” become a code word for shill?

We are being sorted by professional marketers into trust-groups and tribes, where we have secret understandings and worldviews.  By sharing the same worldview, we have a basic level of trust built in.  And when we don’t share the same worldview, how can we build a basic level of trust?  

How do we see behind the curtain of code words and talking points?  How do we stop reacting to divisive messaging? How do we change the game?  What are our next steps in reconnecting with each other?  

We’ll serve this as the blue plate special today on LUNCH WITH LOUDEN.  (Did you think blue had a meaning? YOU must call in.)

Conventions, Speeches, Journalists & Democracy on LUNCH WITH LOUDEN, today at NOON PT 646-929-2495

Michelle Obama and Bill Clinton have made big speeches this week.  How do journalists cover these big events in a meaningful way?  Is news coverage ever unbiased?  What would “just the facts” reporting look like?  Would it draw an audience?

On today’s LUNCH WITH LOUDEN, we talk with Peggy Holman, Founder of Journalism that Matters, a nonprofit that recommits journalism to what is fundamental for connecting news with its audience so that it serves and sustains us.  Today, we’ll talk about the shifting role of the media in today's world.  We’ll also tackle the emergence of citizen journalists and what basic skills are needed to provide accurate and solid information.

But how healthy is our current system?  What do we need for a sustainably healthy news and information system? Why the need to recommit to anything? Hint: check one of their websites: Tao of Journalism.

As always, we want to hear from you.  Join us!

GOP Platform guts Campaign Finance Reform and Labor Day History-What's Changed? LUNCH w LOUDEN 8/30 at 12N PT

Coffee Party core issues are Campaign Finance Reform, Tax Code Reform and Wall Street Reform.  Where does the GOP stand on these issues?  First of all...here’s the GOP Platform, so you can read it for yourself.  We’re gonna go “wonky” with you today with the help of Derek Cressmen from Common Cause, talking primarily about Campaign Finance Reform.  We may wander into Tax Code and Wall Street Reform, too.  

Next up:  It’s the big Labor Day weekend...the official end of summer.  But do you know why Labor Day actually started?  We want to take a look today at the continued polarization of business and labor.  How can “we” improve relationships and what would need to shift in our culture to manage the tension better?  As former business owners, Jeanene and Debilyn will spice this up...but maybe not in the way you think.
