What do a community elder in the West Bank and a high school student from the south side of Chicago have in common?
What about an educator in Lahore and a human rights attorney living in an urban kibbutz? Or Israeli musicians and the first Muslim elected to the Portland, Maine, city council?
Find out in our new radio documentary series, Inspired, which just launched to rave reviews last week.
Journalists Marisa Mazria Katz and Bilal Qureshi have traveled the globe, meeting seven uncommon changemakers whose commitment to improving their corners of the world grows from a single, common seed. And listeners travel with them … to a dinner amongst friends on a rooftop in Lahore, an LGBT pride parade outside of Tel Aviv, the principal’s office in a Chicago high school, a music studio in Jaffa, the memorial to a Palestinian poet, and the shores of Pleasant Lake in Maine.
Download the series and find out why listeners are saying Inspired is “a critical counterpoint to the doomsday news cycle” and “gives me hope for a better world.”
(And if you love the music you hear at the beginning and end of each episode, thank GATHER Fellow Arnon who created the soundtrack especially for this series. He’s also featured in the final episode of Inspired, using his stage name, Sun.)
