I’m interviewing Sister Helen Prejean today over at Naropa University with Mito Media, for elephantjournal.com, Huffington Post, and Mallika Chopra’s Intent.com, where I’m starting a new column in the short-term.

A new season of elephant journal’s Walk the Talk Show: Last year, our talk show season lasted 9 months. This year, it’ll be five months—four videos a month, on average, from May through September, with some random videos in the winter of 09/10.
