"What’s Next?" is a series of conversations in which my friend Jimmy Buff and I invited some insightful humans to share their ideas on change to come and how we might help to create that change. We also talked with folks who shared their wisdom regarding how we got here. This is both a time capsule of moments gathered between 2015 and 2017 and a harbinger (we hope) of change in progress.
Einstein said "We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.”
"What’s Next?” will get you thinking about creating new solutions to some of our current problems.

A conversation from September 2016 featuring Joe Concra, painter, activist, and co-founder of the non-profit organization called O+ (pronounced o-positive, like the blood type). O+ creates opportunities for community members to care for each other including their most well known offering, the annual O+ Festival, now in it's ninth year in Kingston, New York, where artists, health care providers, musicians, and volunteers collaborate in the co-creation of a community festival of art and wellness. All are equal, all are one at O+. This episode also features some interesting introductory conversation with Jimmy, myself, and my wife Jennifer that is still very timely despite being recorded approximately two months BT (before Trump).
A conversation with writer, actor, and storyteller James Lecesne. In addition to numerous creative works which shine a light on the LGBTQ experience, James has also founded The Trevor Project and The Future Perfect Project which create support structures and safe space for LGBTQ youth.

Elizabeth Lesser is a bestselling author and the cofounder of Omega Institute in Rhinebeck, NY. She joins Peter in the studio to talk about love, fear, ego, trauma, power, scarcity versus abundance thinking, patriarchy, and the history of Omega, founded in 1975. Together they ask, what am I not doing and why am I not doing it?
Renowned author Daniel Quinn (October 11, 1935 - February 17, 2018) joined Peter and Jimmy by phone for a discussion of what he learned while writing more than a dozen books in observation of the human condition, modern cultures of relentless growth, and our civilization’s determined acceleration towards an overpopulated oblivion.
