Deb Hobson

Known for her warmth, sensitivity and engaging manner, Deb Hobson is at home with the broad-ranging topics she brings you on Chautauqua. Deb always invites an intelligent exploration of provocative issues. She genuinely enjoys talking with the creative thinkers and activists you won't hear on any other program in mid-Missouri.

"I learn so much from our guests." Deb explains. "Whether they're sharing intimate personal experiences, visionary ideas, or practical tools for living, what emerges is a sense of people who are living creative, purposeful lives."
