Marin Poets Live! Television Marathon - Sunday April 24

Poetry fuels our intellect, sparks our imagination and makes us all dream out loud.

Join us on Marin TV this Sunday April 24, as we celebrate National poetry month with a Marin Poets Live! marathon.

Four years ago, the Marin County Free Library began this series hosted by Neshama Franklin and crewed by Marin TV volunteers Brian Jones, Nancy Finston, Lori Greenleaf, Brad Flaharty and others. Thirty eight episodes later the series is still going strong, giving voice to Marin's poetry community!

Tune in Sunday - we promise your week will be the better for it!

Marin County Firefighters: "Always Prepared" Watch now on Vimeo

Three years ago I made a short film about what it's like to work up in the fire lookout on the East Peak of Mt. Tamalpais. The majority of a lookout’s day is spent in watchfulness while listening to Marin County Fire dispatch sending firefighters on calls. As I became more and more familiar with what I was hearing, I began to marvel at how our first responders are instantly ready to help anyone in trouble… and there were plenty of emergencies on that radio. Car and bike accidents, structure and wildland fires, medical emergencies and more… there are a constant string of crises that firefighters have to respond to FAST.

Seriously Now

Seriously Now In Depth this week takes a look at youth and family courts. First, an interview with Don Carney, the director of Marin Youth Court which brings an innovative approach to Marin’s teenagers. The youth play DA, defense lawyer, and juror and the sentences are binding. The sentences focus on restorative justice and not on punishment. Kelly O’Mara, a host for Seriously Now, conducts the interview.
