Hello WISR MFT students and others interested in MFT seminars,
Audio recordings (in mp4 format) are now available for many of our recent seminars. We will make strong efforts to make all future MFT seminars available (at least for a few months at a time, depending on the size of the files), as well. And, our seminars and events may often be made available.
These files are stored on the Google Drive of a specially created account for that purpose. To access the Google Drive with these audio (and once in a while video as well) files, go to the following e-mail account through gmail account.

Interviews with WISR students, alumni and faculty: “Extraordinary Stories of Progressive Social Change in Everyday Life.”
WISR President and Faculty Member, John Bilorusky conducted interviews for a pilot radio series for the internet-based radio network, World Talk Radio, and the audio files of these interviews will soon be available below. . .
The guests for this show aren’t usually in the headlines of newspapers–at least not on the front pages–but they are doing important and significant work, and their stories can provide not only inspiration, but direction and ideas to others. At the same time, their efforts are also often “unassuming” and even “unnoticed,” because they’ve found ways to make a difference by catalyzing changes that encourage and allow people to participate with them while still going about their “everyday lives.”
