When I started the Social Fabric Podcast I had an idea of rebuilding the fabric of society through conversations.Just over two years on and 100 guests, that idea is turning into reality.Some small communities have been created around these conversations, some changes have taken place, some collaborations and a of course some wonderful stories have been told.I am forever grateful to every single guest that has taken the time to share a story with me, every single listener that has allowed me to keep them company week in and week out, Ross Thompson for hosting this episode, NearFM for their support and for broadcasting it weekly, the Whale Theatre for inviting me to create the live podcast events and Lucky Bones for the song Alice, the title tune.Why fit in when you were born to stand out Dr SeussFor more information check out Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn or www.socialfabric.ie __________________________________Music ChoiceDown to the river to pray - Alyson KraussI hope that I don't fall in love with you - Tom WaitsBrewing up a storm - The StunningLay me down - The Frames Into the mystic - Van MorrisonAngel - Jimi HendrixNwahulwana - Wazimbo, Orchestra Marrabenta Star de Mocambique__________________________________All music is available on Spotify in the Social Fabric Playlist______________________________Title Music Alice by Lucky Bones ______________________________
