Living Free Productions:
Promoting autonomy and freedom in an age of manipulation and control
"Living Free" now airs on cable Channel 15 in St. Paul, Minnesota. Show time is 9:00 to 10:00 p.m. Sunday evenings. St. Paul Neighborhood Network (SPNN), a local (FCC required) cable service, offering public access programming in the city of St. Paul, Minnesota.
Living Free is also broadcast in Minneapolis on Minneapolis Telecommunications Network (MTN) Cable channel 17 at 11:00 p.m. on Wednesdays (immediately following the broadcast of DemocracyNow!).
Living Free is focused on promoting the values of "truth, beauty, freedom, and above all, love"; the same values that drove the era of the "Belle epoque," in France during the latter part of the 19th century and into the early part of the 20th (see - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Belle_Epoque). Prior to 2011, we focused on distributing content provided by Pepperspray Productions (see http://www.peppersprayproductions.org/ for more information about this project).
I have made a deliberate decision to focus on more positive and pragmatic content. We hope to inspire folks and provide useful resources to promote personal autonomy, and creative living. With collaborators, I am currently focused on creating content documenting individuals who live their lives as creatively as possible and institutions that affect positive change in the community. Please revisit this site over time to find move video clips and resources resulting from our efforts!

Current Show: Sara Bareilles Compilation...
I know. Kinda flakey. But, hey, sometimes I just gotta recognize artists that I really dig. Sara is one of these.
Recent Show: All About Cooperatives...
Includes a great interview with naomi Klein discussing her new book (which focuses on the relationship between climate change and capitalism and, interestingly, how coops and collectives can change this relationship for the better!
Sex-Positive Feminism and More...
Very interesting discussion about a topic few are willing to discuss. Live dangerously - watch the video! You may end up thinking for yourself, rather than following the politically correct way of thinking!

Some good news, links and resources...
