THE TEAM

IN MEMORIAL TO DAVID (DIEGO) MULLIGAN

DiegoMulligan-JimHightower-cropped

For 18 years, Diego Mulligan brilliantly hosted his commute-time radio show, “The Journey Home.” Based in Santa Fe, New Mexico, Diego interviewed hundreds of leading sustainability innovators. Monday through Friday, Diego’s listeners learned how to live with little or no GMOs, gasoline or grid electricity. He put the lie to corporate controlled media’s negativity. Due to Diego’s championing of renewable energy and conscious living, many in his dedicated audience were spurred to transition to the Parallel World of sustainable alternatives. Diego was a great friend, a clear voice and a pioneering thinker. We hope his untiring message lives on in APW. In loving memory, the team here at APW dedicates AParallelWorld.com to our friend and mentor, Diego Mulligan.
