Beyond The Talking Points: Medicare For All (with guest Tom Okeefe)
“Our Nation’s Transformation: Beyond The Talking Points” is our show about the intersection of politics and spirituality. Each month, a new guest discusses an issue as it relates to both politics and spirituality.
The twist is that the interviewer is a puppet named Newton. ;)
But — this is a show for adults.
Its intention is, in a (hopefully) entertaining way, to educate the public on important political issues or political/social justice groups, while at the same time reminding us of the big picture - that we are interconnected beings who have the opportunity at any given time to remember we share far more in common than what separates us.
As Lydia Edwards reminds us, “The language of the heart is the most important language we will ever speak.”
This quote from Marianne Williamson summarizes the rationale of our show:
“A nation is a collection of individuals; the same psychological, emotional & spiritual principles that apply to healing one life apply to healing the whole. We can't just fix things on the outside; we need a new, whole-person politics that addresses both inner & outer wounds... We need an entirely new conversation than the one we're having now.”
It is our intention to play a part in that conversation, and to draw new people in every day.
In the second episode of “Beyond The Talking Points,” Newton asks the question, “What would people’s lives be like if we approached healthcare from a people-centered view, instead of a profit-centered view?”
Join us as Tom Okeefe, LPN, explains exactly what a “Medicare For All” healthcare system (ie, a Single-Payer healthcare system) would look like in terms that everyone can understand (even a puppet).
