Dialogue takes center stage during the fascinating program, New Urban Unlimited. Hosted by Dr. James R. Gore, the program strives to educate its audience on a variety of issues through the use of quality conversation.

New Urban Unlimited is a story telling radio show where contributors and special guests contribute to the media landscape with compelling and informative dialogue. These guests represent our local, national and global communities,” said Dr. Gore.

Referencing an article in the Harvard Business Review, Dr. Gore said that in our information-saturated age, leaders must have good story telling skills.

“Nick Morgan, author of Power Cues, once was quoted saying ‘facts and figures and all the rational things that we think are important in the business world actually don’t stick in our minds at all, but stories create sticky memories by attaching emotions to things that happen. That means leaders who can create and share good stories have a powerful advantage over others.’ His words really ring true to me,” said Dr. Gore.

Dr. Gore went on to assert that dialogue is probably one of human-kind’s oldest communication traditions; however, it is increasingly important for dialogue to inspire conversation which may invoke change for the future. In this spirit, New Urban Unlimited conveys stories which may very well shape our complex world as we move forward. The program’s contributors focus on local community issues, arts and entertainment, human relationships, real estate, insurance and personal finance, marketing, health, politics and other compelling subject matter.

New Urban Unlimited also features special guests, including such distinguished celebrities as Russell Simmons, Kenny G, Christian McBride, Norman Brown and Will Downing to name a few. Additionally, many local trend-setters who are making Seattle one of the world’s most desirable places to live join in the weekly conversation.
