  1. Thank you WYOU and WORT for making this event possible. I found it to be the most inspiring set of talks I’ve ever seen. Please make the footage available so that I can send it to my friends and family.

    Sincerely,

    Jason P. Weick

  2. Ditto what Jason said. It felt good to hear this talk, to know that I’m not the only person seeing this happen. I was under the impression that the video/audio would be rebroadcast at some point. But I am finding it difficult to find anywhere. Please, please, please make this available in some way. I would love to listen to it again.

  3. WYOU will air an hour and a half on this coming Monday at 1:30 pm during our Open Afternoon time slot.

    Then this December, the program will be shown in its entirety with numerous repeats.

    Thanks for your nice comments.
