Update: video

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. This will be the first since my new video for elephantjournal.com with Dr. Andrew Weil in Denver.

“It’s all about waking up,” Sister Helen says. Amen to that:

    I do accept as true with all the ideas you’ve introduced in your post. They are very convincing and will certainly work. Still, the posts are very short for starters. Could you please extend them a bit from next time? Thank you for the post.
