First in Future: Founder and CEO of the Listen First Project Pearce Godwin

Summary: Just listen to someone else. Hear what they are saying. Recognize that other people see things from a different angle, and it changes the way we see things ourselves and gives us a different perspective. That is what our First in Future guest, Pearce Godwin, founder and CEO of the Listen First Project discovered. He was riding down a bumpy road in Uganda in 2013 and saw something about the US that many of us were only beginning to realize. What he realized changed his life and he started the nonprofit and the National Conversation Project. Listen and hear what he is saying.

This installment of First in Future is part of a special TV series produced in collaboration with UNC-TV, and is recorded in UNC-TV’s Studios. Taped segments will air on the North Carolina Channel. Visit for specific air dates.
