Insightful author, speaker, and consultant Carter Phipps joins Terry to explore our intensifying political, economic, and cultural crises in the U.S. Carter begins by reflecting on his previous home — the San Francisco Bay Area — and how, in many ways, today’s progressive cities do not resemble the healthy and sustainable future societies he envisions. He and Terry consider how progressives might more effectively care for and criticize their own tribe, while also integrating innovative conservative solutions.
Here are some of the questions they discuss:
Carter is the co-author (with Whole Foods founder John Mackey and philosopher Steve McIntosh) of the upcoming book Conscious Leadership. He also authored the important bestseller, Evolutionaries — and he was previously the executive editor of What Is Enlightenment? magazine from 2005-2010. With McIntosh, he co-founded the social policy think tank, the Institute for Cultural Evolution. He has most recently been writing, speaking, and consulting at the intersection of business, politics, and culture. Most of all, Carter is an insightful observer of deep and mostly unnoticed cultural emergents, currents and dynamics, “Thinking Ahead” with clarity and balance.
