About Our Show

We can understand the world better and learn more about ourselves when we pay attention to the stories of other people. By listening to the voices of others, we strengthen our own… Our attitudes and actions have great potential to affect those around us. With the awareness that we are all connected, we challenge the listener to look for a connection with the perspective of our guests, consider how their stories resonate with our experience.

Barb Seaman at mic recording for KXRW

Barb Seaman


Barb’s work as a producer/director for a small, local Cable TV channel north of Chicago- back in the 80’s and 90’s- helped shape her curiosity about what makes people tick. After taking a Radio U workshop, offered by the Media Institute for Social Change in 2016, she rediscovered how fun it is to listen to people tell their stories, and to use audio as a means to relate these various ideas and perspectives. She began volunteering for KXRW in January 2020, producing occasional short segments for the morning news.
