  1. I really enjoyed this episode. It absolutely delivered as promised with “A New Perspective On Things”. I am reminded one time several years ago as I went to lunch with a colleague in the insurance industry who was almost retirement age at the time. I made the remark one day that I couldn’t stand a thief and how they should be punished to the fullest extent of the law. He looked at me and said… what if a woman walks out of a drugstore with a pretty bracelet on her hand that you can tell is worth something and a teenager approaches her, steals that bracelet and runs off. He asked my opinion and I told him I’d be disgusted and I’d want him punished to the fullest extent of the law. He simply responded with this thought provoking statement… , what if he did this because he had a sick family member and they could not afford medicine or food. And what if he sold that to buy medicine or food.

    Without getting into a discussion on government assistance and whether it’s available to the right people at the right time or not, it made me think they’re may be more to the story for someone who’s never had to face certain challenges.

    Its a good reminder to try and see from someone else’s perspective.

    Thanks Wes.

    1. Thank you Chris for the kind words. Yesterday I had a conversation with a large web property focused on enabling social change. They reached out to me specifically to discuss co-promoting one another since the podcast’s focus is on a neutral presentation of various perspectives. I believe there is true value in this myself. Very glad you enjoyed the episode. Another episode is recorded and in audio editing now. Stay tuned!
