Can Higher Palooza save the world. No sweat, but help is needed.... yeah: you and me, that's who they're looking at :-P
I can never refuse a Higher Palooza!
While there's so much to dislike about a global pandemic, the Zoom-effect on AA, AA's subcultures and the greater peer2peer community as a whole, will likely mark this turning point in our history - for those who survive the pandemic - as ground breaking in the way connection can be maintained online while we're locked down at home.
One of the hand-down, no argument Five-Star bonuses from a year of living pandemically, is that Higher Palooza is here now, and maybe here to stay. Today we talk to a fraction of the helpful contributors to Higher Palooza #1 through #8: Thanks to Terry, Annie, Tracy, Bobby and Sally. This was fabulous.
Five from HP, via zoom from Dublin to Cleveland, we hear about the Palooza past and Higher Palooza future is put squarely at your feet - yep, you and me. Self-supporting is more than we who participate in AA pay our way; it also means we share the duties of involved in running meetings, events and outreach. Higher Palooza isn't just the cost of a Zoom account and website; it's time and talent, too. You got talent? You got time? Higher Palooza could use ya!
See, I rhymed something with "palooza" twice. That's talent, right? Higher Palooza needs people to find other people to share, hosts and co-hosts, poster makers and web away at website websitery.
But enough about the call to action, for now. Listen to, and enjoy and/or share, the podcast. Visit Freethinkers Cleveland for more Paloozing more of the time: 20 recordings to help you get through this day and the days ahead. It's like a mental/emotional and intellectual check up, from the neck up.

Every episode we serve up a dose of music-medicine, borrowing from IndieCan Radio's pool of the best music you've never heard. This week, it's Toronto's Sean Watson Graham and song we mutual-aid types will raise a coffee mug to: Your Life Is a Story
