Dec 10 Walk the Talk Show: “How to talk to those who aren’t sure about Global Warming,” & Tashi King re Health Care, Breast Cancer. Videos coming.

Sorry, we didn’t get any photos of the taping itself, but here’s a few I snapped afterward:

[slide]Update: Just received word that Dr. Stuart Lord, President of Naropa University, will {not} attend!

Update: Michael Garfield, a talented local musician, will provide transitions. We’re honored and grateful.

Update: Tashi King, our friend with breast cancer, will appear on our @WalktheTalkShow taping this Thurs.

Via Lindsey Cash, our event producer:

The Walk the Talk Show has been making changes!

“We have a whole new crew and with that comes a new direction. We’ve been doing some thinking, reconsidering our goals, and when it comes down to it, our first priority is to use our unique position as the Internet’s only green talk show (*named top 10 green-minded vlog in the country) to focus on producing the most thoughtful and genuine conversations possible, as well as the highest quality videos.

That said, we’ve been hard at working preparing an intimate home studio for our taping this week. The evening will be personal and special. Please attend with the intention to be part of something new, sincere, and thought-provoking. In the future, we’ll continue to do bigger public events, but this studio setting will enable us greater technical control and schedule flexibility.

The show will feature guests re: Breast Cancer and How to Talk to Global Warming Deniers and live music by a local talent.

Free (suggested donation: $5,000 dollars, but $5 will do). 7pm – 8pm.

  1. I went and excitedly signed up for this on Facebook, assuming it was an online conference. But then I realized that this is an in-person event, right?

    Is there a schedule for getting it online yet? For us out-of-towners and newbies it would be very helpful to include information about internet availability as an integral part of every notice. I have actually never seen one of these shows because it was never obvious how to access it, and when I did I had difficulties with the site.

    I will be more persistent next time, but I would suggest going out of your way to make it crystal clear and easy. So far it has the feel of an insider Boulder event that I just can't seem to get tuned into. I will certainly take my share of the responsibility for my own confusion. But how many other potential viewers will keep coming back to try and figure it out?

  9. Thanks, dgrinbergs. We've moved them to Februay and March shows, since we're working with a new crew and wanted to have another dry run in a more private context. Naropa was fantastic venue but a bit tough sound and set-wise in some ways for our shoestring outfit of merry misfits.

    Bob, our show is the second Thursday of every month, at 7pm sharp MST. It'll be live streamed through ustream/walkthetalkshow or something…Lindsey, help? Ah, here 'tis: http://www.ustream.tv/channel/walkthetalkshow

    Bob, the main reason we do a bad job of publicizing the shows is because they're not particularly intended for live audiences…though we do stream it for those who like to see the behind the scenes machinations and intrigue. Mainly, we tape them (three cameras) then edit and share them across our host network of 20 sites including, hopefully, yours! We'll tweet and FB post and blog the new videos whenver they're up. You can find allll of our old videos (well, except for the 200 Brightcove deleted, and we don't know if we have backup to upload, and don't have manpower to do $o anyway) at http://www.elephantjournal.com/videos/

  19. Thanks so much for the explanations. My feedback is that I still don't have any clear idea of what the Walk-the-Talk Show is, how to see it, or how it fits into the future, even though I've been an avid fan of Elephant Journal for a few months now.

    Whenever it's mentioned, it seems to be assumed that the reader knows about it already, which is fine if everyone else but me does, or if it's just for the Boulder locals. But one might assume that if I'm confused, a great number of other potential fans might be also. I just went to the video page you linked to above. Lot's of interesting videos there, but the last "Walk the Talk" was in August, didn't seem to be anything like what you're advertising now, and it didn't answer any of my questions about above.

    (continued below)

  20. Then I went to the ustream.tv site, thinking I would be able to find tapes of past shows there, but I couldn't find them if they're there.

    I'm not saying you need a publicity campaign. I'm just suggesting you write all your "Walk the Talk" blogs with the assumption there will be new out-of-town readers who need to be informed about the basics, and either write the information into the blog or provide an "Introduction to…" link.

    (If you ever prefer that I raise these concerns privately instead of in blog comments, just let me know.)

    Thanks.

  24. Love it. Did you click on the http://www.elephantjournal.com/videos/ link?

    Appreciate and wholeheartedly agree with the advice.

    Basically Walk the Talk Show as a title is new, it used to be called "elevision," (which, ironically, we changed because elevision was deemed to in-jokey) and we've only done a few shows here in Boulder under the new moniker, tho the interviews–with Top Chef Hosea Rosenberg, Michael Pollan, John Friend, Paper Bird, Tech Stars…have gotten good play already. We'll do a better job of being less of an insider deal next time…being insular and not accessible certainly runs directly counter to our mission.

    Our mission is to "do for the mindful life—yoga, green, organics, arts, education—what Jon Stewart has done for politics…offer news and interviews in a fun, accessible, yet fundamentally serious manner so that the choir can stay informed, and the masses who didn't know they cared can get involved. Here's an old promo:

  28. Great. I'm already much better informed. Your description above and the old promo give me a good feel for the purpose and rich history of Walk the Talk. This material is good and clear, just not as accessible as it should be.

    I think if you just always keep the brand new reader in mind, who may or may not be steeped in green lore and culture already but is curious and interested, you'll be on the right track. This will cause you to write every blog with both your old and new fans in mind, and probably write some blogs and post some ads on you site that you wouldn't have done otherwise. You'll attract the on-the-fence new reader, as I was just a few months ago, and it won't cost you a dime. And why not have a separate page for "Walk the Talk" blogs and videos, if it's easy with your WordPress options?

  32. We have a separate tab…but it's not really standing out, apparently!

  33. Do you mean the "video" tab? Sure, the video page is very accessible, but I'm talking about "Walk the Talk". I meant a "Walk the Talk" tab, which when clicked would provide Buddhist type enlightenment about "Walk the Talk."
