  • Round 1: Introductions (2+ minutes per person to introduce yourself to the group)
  • Round 2 : Topic Thoughts (4+ minutes per person)
  • Round 3: Open Discussion

This Sunday's (September 8th) call topic** will be:

Goodbye Therapy – When is our healing process finished?

 

Private message me via the Freedomain Radio forum to pre-register (max. 10 callers)

 

*Calls will be recorded.

**Please reply to this thread with any topic suggestions you have! :)

That sounds awesome! There is rarely a Sunday I don't have free, and unfortunately this sunday is one of them :(

 

I'd love to listen / participate in future West Coast calls!

 

I can't find my way to waking up at 7am on my day off. I was pretty bummed when they moved the Sunday show to the earlier time :(

Thanks :)

 

I really like the format too. Seems like a great way to engage people in the call who might otherwise just listen and not talk.

 

As for topics I think would be cool to talk about are things mostly around courage, doing things that make you feel fulfilled and living a happy life. That sort of thing. But I'm also kind of a slut for philosophy, I like it all. Economics, politics, metaphysics, psychology etc. So I'm easy like sunday morning ;)

If so, I recommend people dress as slutty gadflies. Best way to merge the two worlds.

why don't you record these shows and make a show out of them so others can benefit?

It's a great idea - I'm currently considering it.

Great call this week!

 

I'd really encourage others to try it :)

 

I can get anxious about this sort of thing, like what if I mess it up in some way or some other insecurity, but the folks and the format are great so I'd encourage you (if you are on the fence) to push through that a bit and give it a shot.

 

It was my first time calling in, and the diversity of opinion was really interesting I thought.

 

Thanks Phil for putting this on. I'm totally on for next week if there's a show next week!
