TV Show

Spirit of the Berkshires is the TV show I hosted a few years back  on CTSB-TV. Each week, I interviewed people with interesting ideas and impressive achievements in many fields of human endeavor, including the Arts, Science, Religion, Politics, Economics, Health and Education. The discussions focused on thoughtfulness, creativity and passion, as well as practicality. My motivation was to provide a forum for guests without any of the rudeness, endless interruptions, and annoying argumentativeness that is so pervasive in today’s typical media. You will find each episode entertaining and fun, but also filled with real substance.
