I am very excited to present this interview with Tribune Media Services syndicated columnist Bob Koehler at Manifest Positivity. It is the first remote interview here using Skype's relatively new call recorder feature. This will allow me to interact with far more people than just those I can personally visit with my video camera, so look for more split screen interviews like this coming up.

In this discussion, Koehler talks about what it means to be a self-described "peace journalist," writing about his participation in "peace circles," much the same way my advocacy journalism is about using media transparently to document advance work to create change in the world. In his most recent column, "Power With, Power Over," he also comes to an amazing point of clarity about personal relationships of power, mirroring the definition I have long used for peaceful revolution.

In the interest of transparency: the reason we did two takes was the first one had many audio dropouts and video freezes avoided by changes to the Skype settings for the second try. The content in both was very similar.
