In this twenty-seventh episode of the Philosophy Bakes Bread radio show and podcast, co-hosts Dr. Eric Thomas Weber and Dr. Anthony Cashio interview Drs. Danielle Lake, Judy Whipps, and Mike Ricco, all of Grand Valley State University.
Danielle was featured in episode 12 (“That’s a Wicked Problem You’ve Got There”) of the show and was kind enough to join us again. She and Judy both teach philosophy in the Department of Liberal Studies at Grand Valley State University. Mike teaches in the business school at GVSU. The three of them have started an interdisciplinary leadership and community engagement program for non-traditional students.

You Tell Me!
For our future “You Tell Me!” segments, Drs. Lake, Whipps, and Ricco proposed the following questions in this episode, for which we invite your feedback:
- “If you’re not actively engaged with your community, what’s stopping you?”
- “How can we lead from wherever we are?”
- “At the end of the day, are you willing to take the risk to make things different from how they are now?”
What do you think?
