“Is all the cruelty, violence, and suffering in our world inevitable? Is there an alternative? If so, what is it? And what can we do to get there?”
The POP podcast explores these questions that each of us are asking in an increasingly unstable world. These very questions prompted Riane Eisler to deeply research our social systems, going back thousands of years, in search of meaningful answers. It turns out there are answers that can help us create a different future.
The POP podcast interviews people around the world practicing Partnership Systems, Riane Eisler’s ground-breaking alternative to what she refers to as the Domination Systems that are at the root of our world’s most pressing challenges. Eisler’s Partnership framework is a practical, transformative model to help us build a world that values caring, nature, and shared prosperity.
In these interviews, you will hear how the Partnership framework is being used to grapple with relationships, parenting, gendered stereotypes, community inequities, economic and environmental complexities - and our internalized narratives.
Power of Partnership Episodes
Episodes will be released in rotating order of Riane Eisler’s foundational cornerstones: episodes related to family, parenting and interpersonal relationships; episodes related to the way gender stereotypes impact our world; episodes related to economics and the beyond Gross Domestic Product movement; and episodes that focus on narratives and stories. Podcast episodes and detailed show notes will be accessible through the CPS website where listeners can access a range of resources to help them support a Partnership-based world.
The POP podcast shows how we can implement Partnership principles based on four cornerstones identified by Riane Eisler that shape the values of all social systems:
- Family and Childhood
- Gender Relations
- Narratives and Language
