It’s A Question Of Balance ®  radio show balances the intellectual with the creative, exploring whether we have more in common than divides us through thought-provoking conversations – out and about with people on the street on different topics, and in the studio with inspiring guests from the arts. Balance is not a compromise. Balance is truth distilled from many places creating cohesive understanding.

Topic: Out And About – Conversations with People on the Street about Questions That Matter: What Now USA? Thoughts From the Santa Cruz Women’s March USA (California).

Women's March Santa Cruz

After the inauguration of the President of the USA, we ask ‘What now USA?’ For our Out and About feature Ruth Copland interviews participants at the Santa Cruz Women’s March USA (in California) to find out what they would like from the new President and Administration, and why. Ruth Copland interviews men and women, and people aged 18 to 80; they speak about their hopes and concerns with regard to the environment, civil rights, women’s rights, immigrants, and tolerance.

Some examples of signs held by interview participants

In Out And About we consider topics with local relevance and global significance. The idea is to get us thinking about the questions that affect us all – to stimulate new thinking, or clarify what we already feel. To hear how other people’s opinions may differ from or be similar to our own.

“It’s A Question of Balance ®  so rare among radio talk shows, lets its subjects breathe. With her discursive style and pleasingly eccentric range of curiosity, host Ruth Copland each week treats her listeners to two hours of Whole Brain Radio.”
