Events

Appearances seem a logical next step after decades of living and years of writing. As in sports, it is best to begin as an amateur before signing with a speakers’ bureau and turning pro.

“Be interested, be interesting” is an ongoing objective. The Pundificator would be happy to:

  1. Be a guest on your podcast
  2. Be a guest on your video
  3. Appear on your show
  4. Join your event
  5. Give a talk
  6. Facilitate a conversation or discussion
  7. Lead a conversation at your book club when you don’t have time for the book
  8. Facilitate a “Thinks & Nibbles” – an evening discussion devoted to a single topic

Here are some thoughts but please get in touch on the SAY HI page to share your idea.

Outlook for the 20s – Not Those 20s, the Next Ones

A thought-provoking list of 10 predictions for the 20s was created by “VC from NYC.” Frazer Rice of “Wealth, Actually” and I used it as an agenda for a podcast in which we share our reactions. 

WHAAAT NO WAY! THE PUNDIFICATOR DOES MEGXIT.

Say it isn’t so. The erudite (though sometimes a little starchy) Pundificator and his equally erudite podcast partner, Frazer Rice, are doing a podcast on Megxit.

The “Pundificator” and “Wealth, Actually” take on Impeachment.

Can Donald Trump withstand the latest attacks on his presidency? Will Nancy Pelosi and/or Mitch McConnell’s constituencies pay a price for this political gamesmanship?
