Thanks to the following guest for participating:
Author and writer Ruhi Lee spoke to me this week on her book Good Indian Daughter. Here is the full interview:
Here are some of the resources from the show:
Julien S. Bourrelle argues how we see the World through cultural glasses. By changing the glasses you can change the way you interpret the World.
The year 2011 was filled with people-powered resistance, starting with Arab Spring and spreading across the world. How did it work? Srdja Popovic (who led the nonviolent movement that took down Milosevic in Serbia in 2000) lays out the plans, skills and tools each movement needs — from nonviolent tactics to a sense of humour.
Books looked at this week:
Ruhi Lee: Good Indian Daughter
Edward T. Hall: Beyond Culture
Srdja Popovic: Blueprint for Revolution: How to Use Rice Pudding, Lego Men, and Other Nonviolent Techniques to Galvanize Communities, Overthrow Dictators, or Simply Change the World
