The Bridge with Kira, Live from Camp White Pine

In a talking circle style interview, Kira talks to Camp White Pine activists: Ellen, Jimmy, Kari, Cass, Dan and Kai. The goal of the show was to give the audience insight into the real motivations of the Camp White Pine activists, in their own words. We got a little philosophical and it was awesome.
