This week’s podcast theme of discovery is expansive from the deeply personal to the full human experience. The digital artwork takes us beyond the day and into the night. The agave flower opens up to the cool light of the moon and pollinating bats.

Balancing being a social entrepreneur and parent, Kabira Stokes joins us to share her unique story. She can trace her Quaker roots to the 1600s in Pennsylvania and Jewish immigrants from Poland, but also grew up in a Sufi Muslim community as a blond white woman.

Activated by protesting the Iraq war and seeing the violence in Los Angeles, Kabira founded Isidore Recycling to recycle electronic waste and hire formerly incarcerated workers. She learned that you don’t fight terror with terror. You don’t fight violence with violence.

As a parent and human being, she sought to find empathy. To hear the call of crisis with compassion. To love through discomfort.
