Focusing on solutions: The antidote to cynicism & despair

We believe there are more solutions than problems, people just don’t realize it.   The good things that are happening are usually drowned out by the fear and cynicism that dominate commercial media. If we focus on the solutions instead, a new optimism will emerge and we'll stay energized enough to take positive action. Solutions News Radio show is our commitment to help people see and experience what can and is working.



Each week we address a wide range of issues including climate change, food systems, energy infrastructure, mental health, homelessness, personal growth and development, solutions for the economy, and personal investing, to name just a few of the topics we will cover. Each program also features a guest who’s doing great work in the world, sometimes locally, sometimes with a broader reach.  Past guests have included Jack Canfield, Marc McGinnes, Margaret Klein Salamon, Jan Campbell and other notable “solutions” thinkers and authors. Listeners can help set the agenda by calling in to the show to tell the hosts what they are interested in or to engage with the weekly guest. The number to call in is 866-564-1290. 



Sponsors of Solutions News include Garlic Gold, an organic food company, and the Optimist Daily, a free subscription service that provides a steady diet of five optimistic stories each day to readers seeking a quick read of positive news and solutions.
