Spotlight: Neil Harvey, Bioneers Radio Senior Producer

This time of the year is especially high-voltage at Bioneers. As we’re ramping up for the conference, we also spring brand new radio on the world: The Bioneers: Revolution from the Heart of Nature. Our radio team tells us this may be the finest series ever, in part because the 2014 conference talks were so amazing.

Because the series airs on hundreds of stations, we have to release the 13 shows one at a time, as they air. You can now hear the first three, and stay tuned weekly for postings of each new show as it airs. 

01-15 Game Changing Climate Leadership

02-15 Nature's Intellegence

03-15 City of Joy

What to Expect: Hope, Humor & Women’s Wisdom

Neil Harvey, Senior Producer and Host of the annual series, recently shared some of his perspectives on what you’ll find in this year’s shows. Neil collaborates on the multi-award-winning series with Bioneers CEO & Co-Founder Kenny Ausubel (Executive Producer/Writer) and Stephanie Welch, Managing Producer. In fact, the series exists because Neil started coming to the conference in the late 1990s, and hooked Bioneers up with his team at New Dimensions Radio, who partnered with us get the series off the ground in 2001.

Neil says that one striking characteristic is the prominence of the feminine voice.  Four shows focus on women’s leadership and the archetypal feminine, and three more feature exclusively female voices. 

“From Eve Ensler’s appearance in two shows including her tour-de-force on the archetype of Adam and Eve, to the brilliant storytelling about 'Archetypes in Every Woman' with Jean Shinoda Bolen, Luisah Teish and Sri Swamini Svatmavidyananda, to the five sheroic Native women fighting Canadian tar sands and Amazon oil extraction in the 'Indigenous Women Rising' show, this whole experience of the rising power and vision of women gave me goose bumps.”

Neil says another highlight is the humor of several of the speakers in this series, especially in these often-dark times. While these are mightily serious issues, it’s vital to keep a light heart and a hopeful mind in order to move forward. This is something that a bioneer possesses. 

On a related note, Neil’s favorite part of making the show is the people. He said, “The guests we work with are quite remarkable human beings. They are true sheroes and heroes of our time.”
