2 days until the pilot of my internet video talk show

If you want to watch or participate as a guest on my new internet talk show, just leave a comment on this post and I’ll get you the information. If you’re a secondary math teacher, I’ll even help you with your lesson for the next day. All happening live.

So you loved my book. And you loved my blog even more. Well, how then are you going to feel about my upcoming live internet TV talk show hosted by an amazing new site (which isn’t even ‘live’ yet) called Spreecast.

Spreecast is basically Talk Radio meets YouTube. It will enable me (or anyone else) to create a live webcast in which people who are listening in can join the conversation and up to four people can appear on the screen at a time like a news show.

I’ll probably do a five minute monologue, then have some invited guests, and then open up the lines for people to interact, live, with me and the guests. It all gets recorded too and archived if you’re not able to watch live.

The first show will be broadcast live on Wednesday August 31st at 10:00 PM Eastern Standard Time. In order to watch or participate, you will need a password. So for the first 20 people who leave a comment on this post expressing interest (don’t put your email into the comment, itself, but into the email field so I can see it only) can reserve a spot to this exclusive and historic event.

Let me know in your comment if you’re joining to express thanks for my frankness or if you’re joining to heckle me or if you’re a TFA staffer, or whatever. I’m not going to exclude anybody, but it would be good for me to get a sense of who this group of people will be before I go live (from the laundry room in my building, I think — two kids at home, a 3 year old and a 4 month old will be sleeping!).

In about a month the site will go public and then anyone can sign up and see future broadcasts (or archived ones).

    I”m interested and I might be a good interview. I talk on KOGO (largest news radio station in SoCal) and have written a couple op eds.

    I just like talking policy. I mostly agree with you, but I’m not a Ravitch fan, if that’s possible.

    also, which book???

    Sign me up please! I’m logged in so I think you can get my email. I’m a 7th grade math teacher in Tennessee. I’d love some math content help.

    I hope to get a chance to watch it, I have a friend in tfa, and have a degree in secondary math education, from back in the dark ages. Started following your blog b/c the training these tfa kids gets scares me.

    I’d enjoy being on, too, Gary. I am a HS teacher in Florida and have been blogging since 2006 and focused primarily the education-politics-money dynamic. I naturally write quite a bit on what’s happening in Florida.

    Hi, Gary, please sign me up.

    TFA alumni, not a fan of the direction the program has gone, so I follow your blog with interest. The show sounds like an interesting expansion.

    Hi Gary,

    Sign me up for future screenings. I’m a 2011 cm who has enjoyed your book and blog very much over the past few months.
