Question about interesting talks...

My residents have brought up a couple of times about being interested in attending interesting talks as an activity.

This suits me well, I like to share information, research etc.. but I don't have a lot of time to produce anything myself.

Does anyone run talks already? And if so, do you know of any resources of say powerpoints or anything on specific topics?

Thanks

Hi Oliver
I do not have any presentations, but I think the armchair travel to so many places would make nice talks

Great Courses is currently offering up to 5 lecture series for $35 each. Most of them are 24-36 sessions. You will receive the dvd set and a guidebook so you can use and reuse them. The lectures are presented by top professors and come in a variety of topics.
This is a great deal as they are regularly $200+ each.
I am currently doing a 36 week course on the geology of the North American National Parks and a 24 week series on Practicing Mindfulness: Intro to Meditation. My residents are living them!!
I believe the sales goes until Feb. 3 2023. Great Courses does this at the beginning of every year. It’s a great opportunity to build a lifetime learning library.
