Welcome to The High Bar… and our IndieGogo campaign. Sraight up, folks, we are on the rocks. To date, we have produced over 70 episodes… all out of pocket, completely reliant on the kindness of volunteer crews, equipment owners and gracious venue managers. We can’t go on like this. WE NEED YOUR HELP if we are to continue, if we are to meet our goal of taping 50 more episodes by the end of 2013.
The High Bar (http://thehighbar.tv) airs six times a week — on KBTC and UWTV — reaching into three million homes and many more via the stations’ websites and our own.
I’m Warren Etheredge, host, barkeep and co-executive producer eagerly seeking your support. Over the past three years, I have welcomed an impressive array of celebrities and smarties to The High Bar to raise a toast to and raise the bar for the subjects about which they care most passionately, whether it be Jodie Foster examining mental health, Gary Oldman decoding trust, Miranda July exploring connectivity, Tavis Smiley & Dr. Cornel West championing economic justice, Top Chef’s Gail Simmons extolling the virtues of eating professionally, comedian/curmudgeon Lewis Black reviving theater or legendary sci-fi writer William Gibson demystifying atemporality.
I believe there is no greater gift than the gift of conversation. Please consider contributing today to continue the conversation/s tomorrow. Think responsibly. Give generously.
