After procrastinating for way too long I finally uploaded the footage from my session of In Conversation with…and now I am finally (after procrastinating again) sharing it with folks beyond the very few who are subscribed to my YouTube channel. It is a pretty long talk and so I broke it down into chapters with a short synopsis describing what I am talking about in each chapter. I have also put them into a playlist so you can watch from beginning to end if you so choose.
Just a re-cap on the event itself:
