Web Talks

The Wilmette Institute sponsors a monthly series of Web Talks (which rhymes with “TED Talks”). These video talks are free and open to the public. Web Talks use a system transmitting audio and video of the presenters, together with any PowerPoint slides being used. Audience members can comment and ask questions by typing them into a “chat” box.

Unless otherwise indicated, all talks are held on a Sunday afternoon at 2 p.m. Eastern Time (1 p.m. CT; 12 noon MT; 11 a.m. PT; 7 p.m. in the UK, 8 p.m. in Western Europe). If you are new to the Web Talks, please read Frequently Asked Questions about the Web Talks.

If a webinar is full you may be unable to log in to the live presentation, as the system currently accepts the first 100 participants only. If that happens you can switch to watching on Facebook or YouTube. Here are the web addresses for both alternate broadcast options:
