#1642: When Women Are The Storytellers, The Human Story Changes | 51%

On this week’s 51%, would the story change if told by women? We spend time with best-selling author Elizabeth Lesser. Then we travel to meet an “Extreme Cowboy” as it’s called, though she’s a woman.

Dr. Sharon Ufberg returns with her 51% segment Force of Nature. This time, she interviews Elizabeth Lesser, co-founder of the Omega Institute for Holistic Studies in Rhinebeck, New York, and best-selling author. Her latest book is Cassandra Speaks: When Women Are the Storytellers, the Human Story Changes.

Dr. Sharon Ufberg is co-founder of the personal development/wellness company, Borrowed Wisdom, in California.

Armchair traveling seems the safe thing to do during a pandemic, so let’s do it. Let’s go abroad, to meet a woman who has been at the top of her sport, trying to defend her title as Israel’s “Extreme Cowboy” champ or cowgirl … cowperson?

That’s our show for this week. Thanks to Tina Renick for production assistance. Our executive producer is Dr. Alan Chartock. Our theme music is Glow in the Dark by Kevin Bartlett.
