Dropping In

Dropping In is a place of discovery, to find the common threads between other people's stories and your own.

Radio Show: Dropping In

Diane Dewey, host of the Dropping In radio show, addresses the subject of identity with authors, entertainers and musicians. These interviews take on different points of view.

We learn about ourselves by hearing other people's stories. What have they learned about creating an identity that matters, that seems meaningful or even original? How can we take what we hear all around us and think for ourselves. Finding our voices means discovering our power.

Empowering others to tell their stories and find their truth.
