E221 – Maren Souders: Open Ears, No Car

Maren Souders has never, ever owned a car.  That’s an achievement even for those who’ve tried!  She brings us some inspiring stories and thoughts on low-car life, the value of listening, and trying to eat vegan while taking Amtrak trains across the country.  Notably, she’s spent some time on a multi-city listening tour, sitting in public places with a “free empathy” sign!  Her webistes:dreamintochange.com & happytolisten.com
