“Jane Addams” in person on CAN-TV21!

I made my TV debut as “Jane Addams” in a role-play conversation with Thom Clark of CAN-TV21’s “Community Media and You” show. The original program aired on Saturday 12/8, & access to the videocast is now available to all on the internet.

Sincere thanks to Thom for patiently coaching a newbee: “Just look at me, Jan. Don’t ask yourself where the camera is.” Much appreciation also to Lucy Knight (who locked down some facts for me after the rehearsal) as well as Sylvia Ewing & Patrice Fletcher of AWJ (who provided behind-the-scenes technical advice).
