Worldview has grown my heart again and again. It has introduced me to fellow listeners/activists who have become dear friends and collaborators. It has opened my eyes to movements and problems and events that I would never have known about otherwise. It maintains rigorous standards of credibility and often provides information and perspectives that are missing from other mainstream media.
Chicago is an international city, and Worldview is the public plaza where all the flags are flown, where we gather to hear each other’s news, where the world’s music is played and we talk about the latest film from the other side of the globe.
No other public radio station does this. Worldview belongs to Chicago. Why would anyone want to burn down a gathering place for important voices, otherwise unheard voices — our voices?Ruth Goring, author, artist, activist
