Pass The Mic

Pass The Mic

Video podcasts featuring unusual & unscripted discussion to challenge our beliefs; Believing in the power of many voices and recognizing that we experience a daily glut of information that can leave us paralyzed and confused, AcornOak is proud to present the Pass the Mic Series. Our moderated dialogs, exploring complex and difficult concepts, offer a practical and simple way to learn from others in a non-judgmental, small group format via video conference. We invite anyone with curiosity, uncertain beliefs and a willingness to objectively listen to others to join our lively discussions. Together we will explore new perspectives – and walk away both enriched and enlightened. Each episode begins with one expert - an open-minded and passionate individual who has spent a great deal of time investigating and researching a certain topic. https://www.acornoak-studio.net/
