Having trouble sleeping? Here’s three hours of my droning voice, going on and on about the ABT, that’s a guaranteed cure for insomnia.
It’s been a busy past few months for me on the podcast circuit (with a couple more in the works). Here’s three I’ve done since the election.
My buddy Park Howell is a professor in the School of Sustainability at Arizona State University. He and I connected nearly four years ago when he read my second book, “Connection,” and instantly grasped the power and importance of the ABT Narrative Template. He listened to me try to warn about the power of Donald Trump as a communicator, but when my warnings proved correct he had me appear on his podcast the morning after the election.
AMERICA ADAPTS: CORAL REEFS COMMUNICATION IS BAD NEWS
Doug Parsons was part of our Connection Storymaker Workshop in 2011 when he was working for the National Park Service on their climate team. He eventually branched off on his own and started this excellent climate podcast, American Adapts. We had a few discussions last fall about climate issues, but when I started ranting at length about the poor job that’s been done in communicating about the worldwide decline of coral reefs he demanded I put my mouth where my mouth was by being a guest.
NEW BOOKS NETWORK: HOW THE GREENHOUSE MANAGER PUT ME IN MY PLACE
Bob Wilson of Syracuse University hosted me in 2010 for a two day campus visit to show my movie, “Sizzle: A Global Warming Comedy,” and speak to their sciences programs. I gave what I thought was a respectable talk, but a member of their audience didn’t think so. What transpired in the Q&A was the greatest public humiliation of my speaking career. It’s a great story that helped inspire much more effort and conscientiousness on my part and contributed to my third book. He gave me the chance to tell the story in detail and lots more about what we’re doing with Story Circles and the ABT these days.
