The topic we are venturing into today has really been on our hearts and minds, and the question is: why are people so angry at this point in time? Where do we draw the line between people being angry because they feel like their individual rights are being stepped on, and what’s needed to serve the greater good?

This episode is an invitation for each of us to have courage in speaking up about what we feel is not right, and to have difficult conversations about issues that matter. If we all just avoid these types of conversations because we fear others’ reactions, then we’re really missing the opportunity to learn and the richness of the dialogue that comes from broadening our perspective.

As always, we invite and welcome your input! Send us your thoughts on what you like about the podcast, what you want to see more of, and who we should invite into the conversation as guests on upcoming episodes.

    Bob Saget's Here For You

    BOB SAGET’S HERE FOR YOU is a podcast that is like no other— For one, this podcast has guests who are friends of Bob’s, or just really interesting people who many of you know and love. Secondly, this podcast is unique because it goes inside Bob Saget’s mind, and then quickly filters out through his mouth. Bob has a way of calming people he has conversations with as well as being entertaining and often informative. Bob talks with his guests with genuine empathy and humor, while reaching his unusually diverse audience that he talks to as a friend, Bob is the dad with great advice, the irreverent funny guy who’s always there when you need a laugh, and the free-associative Bob who goes off on crazy tangents then returns to the subject at hand, as serious or as comedic as it may be, to wrap up each episode in a way only Bob can do. Because he really does believe, “He’s here for you."
