Thom Hartmann

thom-hartmannThom Hartmann, who started in radio in 1968, is also is an internationally known speaker on culture and communications, an author, and an innovator in the fields of psychiatry, ecology, and economics. Hartmann is the award-winning, best-selling author of fourteen books currently in print in over a dozen languages on four continents.
A recurrent theme in Hartmann’s work is that all true and lasting cultural change begins with new insights propagating through enough people to reach a critical mass. History demonstrates, he says, that “when stories change, the world changes.” (Good examples from the 20th century are the stories that women in America should not be allowed to vote, or that blacks should have separate facilities and schools. Once these millennia-old toxic stories began to break down, cultural change came relatively quickly.)

The father of three grown children, he lives near DC with his wife Louise, to whom he’s been married for over 30 years.
