Safe Space Radio is a community radio program hosted and moderated by MAPP member Dr. Anne Hallward. Safe Space is about subjects that are difficult to talk about--a forum for the courageous discussion of topics that make people feel uncomfortable. It is a space for the respectful discussion of matters that touch hearts and yet feel risky to share; subjects that deserve, but rarely get, thoughtful consideration. You can listen to the Safe Space broadcast in the southern Maine area on WMPG Greater Portland Maine Community Radio, 90.9 and 104.1 FM, at 7:30 PM every Wednesday. You can also listen to Safe Space by webstream, podcast, or audio download here, The site also offers a RSS feed.
The topics on Safe Space often deal with the guests’ courage to accept difference in themselves, especially when they feel afraid or shamed about that difference. Shame is a painful psychological and emotional experience, but it is also a political force. All acts of courage inspire others to take risks, to express themselves, to be themselves. Such acts have political force to stand up to silencing, to create change.
Each show attempts to name and acknowledge difficult feelings, and to honor those who have found their own way of putting them into perspective. Listening to Safe Space will introduce you to many who are daring to speak about what is true for them as they find a way to turn their deepest wounds or hidden struggles into a gift for others. You can listen, you can comment, you can share shows with your family, friends and social or professional network.
