Hello, I'm Ty, and I'm working on a way  to talk to anyone about anything. 

I set up a table in public spaces (campuses, parks, etc.) and have short chats with absolute strangers about whatever means a lot to them!  Often, these include subjects such as race, politics and religion--and the main goal of this project is to demonstrate how to have friendly, productive, and meaningful face-to-face conversations about these sensitive issues.   

I use a conversational technique called street epistemology (SE), which is an effective way to ask polite questions that inspires critical thinking in my interview partners.   It's been really effective in my past year of doing these chats and I want to show how SE can work for you.  I want to show you how you can use it in a friendly and relaxed environment to connect with people and help them consider more open-minded perspectives.  And most importantly, I want to show you that SE is both accessible and fun!

Your support is greatly appreciated and will go to affording transportation/parking costs.

Where does the money go, Ty?

My goal is to assist my transportation costs so that I visit campuses and travel to give seminars about Street Epistemology/Communication in the Tri-State Area. With this goal met, I can reliably schedule frequent trips and presentations. Thank you for your support! 

Also, with this funding, I will produce and maintain audio versions of my talks, seminars, and web shows on major podcasting outlets such as iTunes, Stitcher, Soundcloud, and Deezer. I'll also promote the conversations with fellow up-and-coming SE enthusiasts.  I've already started recording episodes, and releasing them here on Patreon.  

I plan on getting better equipment to improve the audio and visual quality of my set up. I'll also source equipment for build an affordable home set up that will allow me to provide indepth content, reviews, tutorials, shows especially for you, my patrons.  Those videos have already started to be released here on youtube and on Patreon.  

My overall goal is to let more people to know about SE, and even if you cannot dump cash into Patreon, don't worry, if you can help spread the word--or try this out yourself, that would be awesome!  Let's work together to do something positive in the world--build bridges, get people thinking, make mistakes--learn from them.  Let's make this happen!
