An insurgence in listeners to my radio show reflects the desire for voters to understand complex issues and formulate their own opinion.
San Francisco, Ca (PRWEB) March 20, 2012
.Douglas Noll, peacemaker, award winning author and award winning lawyer finds a significant increase in attention and responses to the Doug Noll Show—his weekly radio program dedicated to teaching conflict resolution, peacemaking skills, and how to resolve issues at home, work, in government, and politics. Each week Noll interviews noted authors, policy makers, professors and professional peacemakers.
“With so much vitriol present in political radio broadcast shows, it is encouraging that more listeners are discriminating, and want to learn through civilized discourse rather through bullying and name calling, especially as we get prepare ourselves to vote for the next president of the United States,” Noll reflects. “An insurgence in radio listeners and callers to my show reflects the desire for voters to understand complex issues and formulate their own opinions, rather than rely on exaggerations by hosts hooked on dogma and sadly turn personal values into political disputes.”
Noll has had an award winning year for peace efforts through his book Elusive Peace: How Modern Diplomatic Strategies Could Better Resolve World Conflicts (Prometheus, 2011), winning the International Peace and Justice Book Award for advancing understanding in the field of Alternative Dispute Resolution. Noll also won the CLAY (California Lawyer Attorney of the Year), an award he shares with fellow professional Mediator Laurel Kaufer, both cofounders of Prison of Peace, a pro bono project teaching peacemaking skills to female inmates as a direct response to a request from a prisoner asking for solutions for lowering violence in prison.
“By teaching peacemaking skills through my book, projects, and workshops one person, one business, and one group at a time, my mission of moving our world into peace through modern strategies that are sustainable without spending trillions of dollars and costing lives, offers hope for future generations,” Noll says.
