Listening With Your Eyes: Towards Understanding ASL and the Deaf Community, with Michel Zaken
In this episode of On Listening, I have the distinct privilege to interview Michel Zaken, secondary education professional and Deaf woman. She engaged with me via Zoom along with her interpreter Nicole Lupinetti. Michel helped me understand the experience of listening for the d/Deaf and hard of hearing population with the caveat that she does not speak for all d/Deaf people. We discuss American Sign Language - a strictly visual language - and how it differs from American English. She exposes myths around deafness and discusses the experience from the lens of having a “deaf gain” as well as living with a disability. We also explore “audism” which is the bias that d/Deaf people are in some way less than. I learned more in this podcast than any other and so appreciate her thoughtfulness and connection on this topic.

Listening by Intention with Elliot Kronenfeld, LICSW, PhD(c)
In this episode of On Listening I interview Elliot Kronenfeld, LICSW, PhD(c) owner of Insight Brookline, a mental clinic in the Boston area specializing in mental health across the lifespan. Elliot’s areas of interest are infidelity, infertility and intimacy skills. He is the author of Couples by Intention and we discuss his experiences with running education groups with couples - teaching and exploring listening skills. Elliot and I explore deep listening, as well as disenfranchised grief. Elliot has a knack for labeling skills and tools; this helps me conceptualize what he is doing and sharing. I admire his skills. Elliot is very personal in his storytelling and I am sure you will enjoy him maybe as much as I enjoy him!

On Listening with Herb Smith
In this episode of On Listening I have the distinct pleasure of interviewing Herb Smith (https://rpo.org/conductors-musicians/#musicians). Herb is founder of the Freedom Trio and is Third Trumpeter of the Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra and conducts for them as well. Herb and I discuss the importance of listening in music: almost 50% of performing is listening to other performers and students need to learn to listen to themselves as they practice. Herb and I share feelings about the killing of George Floyd and the Black Lives Matter movement, his excitement that the RPO performed at a BLM rally, and we were both hopeful about change as racism is caught on camera. Periodically the only Black person in the entire Eastman Theatre during a concert, Herb shares his experiences in his mostly white world. In the City of Rochester almost 40% of the population is Black (https://datausa.io/profile/geo/rochester-ny/#:~:text=The%205%20largest%20ethnic%20groups,%2DHispanic)%20(3.22%25) yet in his graduating class at Eastman and as a performer, Blacks were and are represented significantly less. Enjoy a Rochester treasure.

On Listening with David Prescott, LICSW
David Prescott (https://www.davidprescott.net/), Clinical Social Worker editor of Safer Society Press and international consultant talks about listening and we explore listening as we attend to how we listen to each other. I have the unfortunate experience of losing the mic and rely on my built-in laptop mic. Listening is truly difficult and David approaches this with a sense of humility. I start thinking about a Taxonomy of Listening… what kind of listening is called for in different situations. We discuss how challenging it is to listen to people who have committed sex crimes as a therapist, and David discusses how trying to understand the context and purpose of the offender’s words - how he fits into their life for one – can balance can balance the possible sympathy for that person and the role of reflection in listening. As a frequent laugher, we discuss the risk of laughter in conversation and how this can be misinterpreted.

On Listening with Alli O'Malley
Alli O’Malley joins us from good old Rochester NY. She served as CEO of RESOLVE of Greater Rochester (resolve-roc.org), a community based domestic violence prevention organization from 2008-2019. Alli is a survivor of inter-generational domestic violence, and is a strong voice for reforming systems to better address not only the needs of victims/survivors but also of perpetrators to ensure they desist from further violence and coercion. In our interview she suggests that preventing domestic violence involves promoting agency for both victims and those who abused them; and together we explore common challenges of the work, including the prevalence of the issue, necessary changes in related language and terminology, victim blaming, and gaps in community responses that focus on punishment instead of remediation.

Voices of the Protest
In early June I went out to a Black Lives Matter protest and interviewed people there for their opinions. I focused on listening to the protest, but also wondered why listening is hard for people who disagree with BLM. Listen to a young woman Rae, to Julio Nieves of SOAR (Shades of America Riders- SOAR Riding Club), and to Dara (https://www.roberts.edu/facultystaff/dara-delgado/) and Ivan Delgado who share their insights. We talk about the great Cornel West who I saw years ago at Oberlin College, and recently at RIT. These are powerful interviews, focusing on Listening as it pertains to personal growth, Black Lives Matter, and change.

On Listening - With Doug Braun Harvey, MFT., CGP.
In this episode of On Listening I interview Doug Braun Harvey MFT, CGP. Doug’s work on sex-drug linked behavior and his rethinking of sex addiction have had a profound effect on me and the entire field of sex therapy. In this episode Doug listens in a manner that is unfamiliar yet highly attuned. I find the experience a bit humbling and affirming at the same time. We talk about the gift of interrupting, how to receive praise, and the stories we tell ourselves as listeners; stories which interrupt our focus on the person to whom we are listening. This episode is like a psychology continuing education credit. Therapists and coaches will find it a useful tool for their clients who wish to listen in new ways.

In this episode I speak with Scott Miller PhD (scottdmiller.com). Scott dedicates himself to research and training which improve therapist outcomes thereby enriching the lives of clients and therapists themselves.

We get a sense of Scott personally as he shares reflections of an experience in his own therapy.
