New Live Podcast Show – Many Paths, Many Visions

New Podcast Show: MANY PATHS, MANY VISIONS

 Producer/Host, Christiana Brinton

In keeping with The Labyrinth Society’s mission to educate, inform and support the worldwide labyrinth community, we are pleased to announce a new podcast show, Many Paths, Many Visions, with host, Christiana Brinton, Public Relations chair for The Labyrinth Society. Join us as we explore various topics through interviews with labyrinth builders, artists, researchers, social workers, and others around the world, who have made labyrinths an integral part of their lives.

Listeners with Skype accounts will be able to live chat during the last 15 minutes of each 60-minute podcast and the archived podcasts will be available free to the public. In addition to The Labyrinth Society's Resource/Media area, see at the end of this article the list of TLS Social Media sites where you, as well as the public, can download the podcasts. 

Other hosts will be invited to create subsequent, future episodes too, so please plan on exploring this interactive, social media outreach platform with us!
