184 Radical Activism Through Kindness: Our Thoughts on ‘Won’t You Be My Neighbor?’

We were lucky enough to catch a screening of ‘Won’t You Be My Neighbor?’ at a local theater last weekend and were quite moved by it. Today’s episode is our thoughts around Fred Rogers’ radical version of activism.

In This Episode

This week we’re talking about thoughts and feelings after seeing ‘Won’t You Be My Neighbor?’, the recently released Mr. Rogers documentary that’s making everyone cry. The documentary brought up a lot for us around alternative forms of activism, what it means to be truly radical, and how fierce love is fuel that can last a lifetime.

  • Loved your highlighting the problem with Ocean collapse, drift nets and recycling. Thank you! “Fishing” is really just hunting, and is totally unsustainable much less inhumane practice.

    As for the straws, I think that it’s really good just to start somewhere so that everyone can feel invested in pulling back from our consumption culture. I prefer “and” to “or”. Nets are the biggest issue, giving a shit for everything is OK. Also… reusable straws are a serious thing.

  • I wanted to follow up on the fish nets, I’m an Interior designer and lots of products are beginning to address all the plastic in the ocean. There is much still to do but I though maybe this would help lift spirits. Interface carpet has developed a program hiring fisherman to retrieve nets to turn into carpet tile. I’ve attached a link to their website with video and more info. Keep rocking I love you to so much!
