Shep Cohen’s interviews with people from all walks of life–workers, authors, entrepreneurs, business owners, organizers, clergy, celebrities…people with big jobs and small–help us get to know what it’s like to walk in another’s shoes. For 20 years now, Shep has been bringing us the voices of people like you and me, people who try to make a difference in this world however they can.
