My hour-long show, The Gifts of Imperfection, has started airing this month. Below is a list of upcoming cities and dates. Please check your local public television station for exact air times.
Most of the PBS stations have websites that list the dates and times for their pledge programming. We are still adding cities to the list, so if you don't see your local PBS station, I would check their programming schedule or call the station.
If you enjoyed The Gifts of Imperfection or I Thought It Was Just Me or the TEDx talks I think you'll love the show. I cover my research on perfectionism, shame resilience for women and men, authenticity, and wholeheartedness.
This is my first real TV experience and it was pretty scary. I did it for two reasons: I'm passionate about my work and I'm passionate about public television. It's the first time it's airing nationally so many stations are "testing it." Some of the times might require setting your DVR! I'll be live in the studio for the 3/7 airing in Houston, and the 3/22 airing in Seattle!
I've learned that Wholehearted Living is a collection of choices. For our family, one of those choices is PBS. We were proud members before this program and we will continue to support public television. I'm so grateful to be able to turn on Sesame Street or Dinosaur Train and know that Charlie is having fun and learning. Steve and I love NOVA, Masterpiece Theater, and the news programs. Of course, our favorite is Austin City Limits!
I hope you enjoy the show and I invite you to call in and pledge your support for public television! The pledge packages include some items that are exclusive to PBS, including a DVD on shame resilience and downloads for the books.
If you check with your local station and they're airing the program but they're not on the list, let me know! The station list isn't in any particular order!
