HOUR 1: Out And About – Conversations with People on the Street about Questions That Matter

‘What constitutes happiness?’ is the topic this week. Should we be trying to be happy all the time or is that unrealistic? What are being told happiness is? What is the media projecting about what should make us happy? Is happiness a choice or is it dictated by the events of our life? Is happiness an individual pursuit or predicated on those around us? Can we grow through happiness or is it necessary to suffer to become a better person? Join the conversation!

I interview Geoffrey Dunn, award-winning journalist, author, film-maker, and historian whose books include The Lies Of Sarah Palin and Santa Cruz Is In The Heart Volumes I and II. A fourth-generation Santa Cruzan, raised in the local Italian fishing community, Geoffrey has chronicled life in Santa Cruz lovingly and meticulously, yet without rose-tinted glasses, offering up a rich historical tapestry of which many locals are unaware. A contributor to The Huffington Post, where he has broken several national stories since the 2008 presidential campaign, Dunn has also served as a Senior Editor for Metro Newspapers in Northern California. The recipient of more than two dozen journalism and film awards during his career, he recently was honoured with a Gail Rich Award and a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Santa Cruz County Chamber of Commerce. We talk about his life, work and latest projects.
