The Delicious Truth with Gloria Cotton, is a podcast series that presents the whole truth about the issues that impact our daily lives.
We believe that what makes something 'delicious' is a certain fullness. Delicious is rich, intimate and powerful. During this podcast, we’ll cover all three delicious layers of the truth.
The Absolute, Empirical Truth
The objective, unbiased precise evidence, the facts, stats and data.
The Personal, Experiential Truth
The experiences people have. Answers to questions like, “How does this show up in peoples’ lives for real?” and “What are some of the things that people don’t know they don’t know and that keep them in a conscious or unconscious darkness or denial about what’s true for others even when it’s not true for them”.
The Consequential, Impactful Truth
The difference this makes in people's lives. Things that answer the questions, “So what?” “Why should anyone care?” and “How does this impact others, not just the target group?”
And finally, we get to NOW WHAT? During this podcast you will hear about resources, solutions, tools and what you can do to make things better, to make a positive difference in your life and the lives of others.
