Hello all. The ethernet connection in this hotel isn’t fast, but we’re going to try and bring you Krista’s interview with Matthieu Ricard, a Tibetan Buddhist monk who is in Canada for the Vancouver Peace Summit, along with the Dalai Lama and many Nobel laureates and great thinkers.

I hope you enjoy and rest assured that we’ll have a high-quality recorded version for your viewing.

Update: The live video stream only aired during the period of the interview and is currently not available. I’ve substituted a photo until I can replace it with a full produced video taken with our HD cameras!
