Immense Possibilities pulls together the work of host Jeff Golden and other social inventors who share a clear set of beliefs, values, and goals in a weekly public TV visit with guests whose social creations are building vibrant communities. They’re solving challenges that the old systems can’t. They’re infusing others with realistic hope and inviting them to come alive. Our sixth season began May 1, 2017.

Does Earth Day Still Matter?

611
It’s been nearly fifty years since a fiery young man named Denis Hayes organized a wildly ambitious new project called “Earth Day.” Now Denis sits down with us to reflect on how it spawned America’s environmental movement, and to preview the March for Science he’s organized for this year’s Earth Day on April 22.

 
 

Story and Youth

604
Some children find their voice quickly and easily. Many don’t. We sample Earth Seasoned, a new film about four girls who lived a full year out in Oregon’s rugged Cascade Mountains, and talk with a founder of the Heartisan Foundation, where youngsters are led to understand the stirring power of their own personal stories.

 
 

Traveling With Purpose

603
Plenty of American tourists want more than recreation and relaxation from their travels. They want to give back. That includes a pair of old friends who fell in love with Jamaica and convinced the island’s largest resort chain to lodge hundreds of service volunteers every year, and a climber whose nearly-miraculous ascent of Everest spawned projects to save Nepal’s poorest children.

 
 

Growing Food, Plants & People

602
With less than 5% of the world’s population, our country houses 22% of its prisoners. Would that change if ex-convicts had dignified, fairly-paid work? Two groups that train hard-time prisoners to grow food and to start and run plant-centered businesses are changing the future for ex-convicts, and beginning to change the shameful statistics.

 
 

The Long View of Matthew Fox

601
Other than Pope Francis, he would likely be the most widely-read Christian clergyman in the world…if he were still a clergyman. Matthew Fox was expelled from the Dominican Order for spreading boldly rambunctious ideas on God and worship that became beacons for millions on their spiritual path. Dr. Fox sits down with us for a memorable half hour.
