Pre-Cannanaut: Marijuana Straight Talk Pilot Episodes
Note: Becca here. Feel free to read the following info but please know that I have since put the TV show on ice. Once I realized the power of the Cannanaut (Cannabis Ceremony) work on personal transformation, it trumped anything else I was doing. Helping people to become in touch with healing their out of control emotions is my singular passion.
We introduced our television show pilots in 2015 and 2016 and were flabbergasted that the show landed among Free Speech TV’s most watched programs – according to Rentrak, a third party media analytic service. (Here’s Free Speech’s on-line link).
Americans are hungry for information, connection and education – and we have it all! We transcend the dire “he said, she said” mainstream media approach with penetrating insights on the “green rush” stirred with a light-hearted, entertaining approach.
Host Becca Williams weaves her irreverent sensibilities throughout all aspects of the show. She leverages her background as an executive TV news producer/reporter and former news anchor for Chicago’s NPR affiliate to give the show its credibility footing. As a lover and long-time advocate of the Plant, Becca adds the edgy and daring continuity needed for a “fun to watch” experience.
Enjoy our pilot episodes below, and send along your comments and suggestions on how we can create the healthiest cannabis cultural movement possible.
For more insights into cannabis culture, join Becca on the MJ Straight Talk YouTube channel for regular doses of her poignant perspectives injected with humor and love.
