“Don’t Let It Go Unheard: New Year’s Day 2016,” Live at 3 p.m. ET (12 p.m. PT)

Happy New Year, everyone! As you know if you’re a regular show listener, the live show typically airs Fridays at 3 p.m. ET, so today we have the opportunity to make it a New Year’s theme show. A little lighter on the politics, heavier on the applied philosophy — centered on the theme of this show, the uniquely American sense of life.

See Program Notes, below, for all the stories, etc., I plan to discuss!
