I give interviews and talks with some frequency. Occasionally, audio or visual recordings are made available to me. I've provided a few for your entertainment.
Video, Streaming and Otherwise
Connecting small group deliberation with electoral politics: An assessment of the 2010 Oregon Citizens' Initiative Review. This is a research talk I gave November 10, 2010, for the Department of Communication at the University of Washington. This talk is also downloadable here.
Brief (5 minute) Australian interview on deliberative democracy. The US Study Centre in Sydney interviewed me about a range of topics. (2/2/2011).The Past and Future of Empowered Citizen Deliberation on Public Policy. This is a three-part talk I gave via the web for an International Political Science Association conference in Luxembourg. The video was cut into three segments for airing on YouTube: part 1 - part 2 - part 3. (3/19/2010)
Reflections on Democracy. I gave this interview about democratic theory, Italy, and American perceptions of Italian politics after giving a talk in Torino, Italy, during the Biennale Democrazia festival celebrating the pursuit of democracy in Italy and across the world. (4/23/2009)
The Future of Deliberative Democratic Theory and Practice. I gave this talk to my colleagues at the University of Washington to summarize some of my most recent research on deliberative democratic theory, jury service, and mass deliberation in initiative elections. An error on the recording tape gives it some audio hiccups, but it's completely understandable. The talk will appear in your media player, but you can click here to see the slides that accompany it. Quick update: the legislation I referred to did not, in the end, get a hearing in the 2007 legislative session. (2/21/2007)
Rage Against the Political Machine. This is a story I recently told on SeattleTV regarding my first experience managing a Congressional campaign, back in 1992. You might enjoy it. It concerns my mother's effort to unseat Congressman Duncan Hunter, who is now a Republican Presidential candidate.
