Feb 11th Zen Live Radio - Global Warming & Green Living
The show on Global Warming and Green Living was by far our best show since we have been doing Zen Live Radio. The audience participation was above average with visitors listing facts, websites, and their own experiences. My co-hosts Tara916 and Euchre put hours into researching the topic and it showed in spades.
Below are some links for those of you who would like more info on Global Warming and Green Living.

There's no better place to witness the disruption of ecosystems and cultures by global warming than the Arctic. This February 14th, Will Steger and his team of Inuit hunters, explorers and educators, will embark on a 1200-mile, four-month-long expedition across the Canadian Arctic's Baffin Island to get a first-hand look at how global warming is impacting the landscape, wildlife, and human communities.
You can follow Will Steger's Global Warming 101 Expedition at http://www.globalwarming101.com/ to learn what is happening to the region.

Unfortunity, the show had its problems. Even after re-cabling the entire set up, we still had a loud 60 cycle hmmmm. Since we couldn't do a skype conference we dropped back to using the stickam audio. This resulted in lag, however not as bad as we thought. The Shoutcast software did a great job broadcasting the show to both servers. However, due to a misplaced character, None of the Show was Archived. We only became aware of this after the show and too late to fix it. So, our best show is history.
One Last Note: There were some RUMORS flying around after the show that we had been "Attacked" during the show. Nothing could be father from the truth. We has a few people attempt to be disruptive, that's the internet and these things happen. We simply added them to ignore and went on with the show as usual. There was only 1 or 2 of these individuals and there was no significant impact on the show or its listeners.
Thanks again to all who tuned in, visited, and participated in the show. We look forward to seeing you all again next week.
Until then, as always.. Be Well! ~Zen Archer
