The Front Porch Movement is a voice in civic engagement that uses the power of multi-media platforms to present stories from a diversity of people. We explore how we live, the challenges we face and the ideas needed to improve our society. Through this higher level of community engagement, the Front Porch Movement aspires to help us be better connected to one another, better informed, and gain a better understanding of opinions that divide us.
 
What if we could impact the world by connecting with the people who live nearest to us--that is our neighbors? It turns out, we can. In this podcast we interview awesome neighbors to learn from them and be inspired by them. We also share occasional neighboring tips. And sometimes we play folk music! So come on over and join us on the front porch.
