Talks

Unlike the 3-5 minute chats, campfire talks are longer 15-30 minute talks. Add a log to the fire as they say! | Our hosts | Our venues | Our topics

Family campfire
A family travels by car to a campfire talk

Sick and tired …

Of the same old evening routine?

Listen to full campfire talk (above)

Listen to individual segments (below)

Sounds like it’s time to shake it up with a campfire talk!

Summary: One of the advantages of living next to Campfire Park is that, on a whim, you can hop in the car and drive out into its ample wild stretches and scenic horizons to explore. Or if the sun is about to set, you may even be able to catch a campfire talk. Join a family as they embark on an evening adventure to attend a campfire talk in nearby Campfire Park. That is, if they make it on time. As good luck would have it, they listen to some nice local radio programming along the way.

Thanks for joining the campfire!

AM Radio Campfire
Welcome to "In The Bunker" with Buck Buckner

Remember the days when …

You put up with the staticky crackle of AM Radio?

Full campfire talk in its entirety

It almost sounded like a campfire. Well, Buck Buckner not only remembers those days, he’s still living them. Welcome to “In The Bunker” with Buck Bunker, the little known but well received (or is anybody listening to him at all?) AM radio show.

Summary: Buck borders the line between being very popular and being completely unknown. But of course he wouldn’t have it any other way. He broadcasts his radio show from a bunker in a remote section of wilderness that fans (or at least one of them) are trying to figure out, and probably full well know. What’s Buck’s primary mantra? He tells listeners to “fear the silence” or rather — “The Fringe Middle” — as he calls the silent majority, he has an apparent fear of bunnies (which he doesn’t trust), is a fierce advocate (in fact the inventor) of the 10/90 Rule, and much much more. When it comes to talking off the cuff, Buck Buckner is never at a loss for words.

Thanks for tuning “In the Bunker” with Buck Buckner,

Campfire talk in its entirety

Sounds like it’s time to shake it up with a campfire talk. That means hoping in your car and driving down the road to the nearest park, right? Actually, here at Campfire Park, we bring the campfire to you. More about this talk: Not just one video, it’s actually multiple videos stitched together in a play list. The idea is to tell an overarching story but also pepper it in with little campfire shorts that here at Campfire Park we call “campfire breaks.”

Summary of this talk: One of the advantages of living next to Campfire Park is that, on a whim, you can hop in the car and drive out into its ample wild stretches and scenic horizons to explore. Or if the sun is about to set, you may even be able to catch a campfire talk. Join a family as they embark on an evening adventure to attend a campfire talk in nearby Campfire Park.

Campfire talk attendees
Journey to Campfire Talk

Campfire talks aren’t solo missions. You need attendees. And usually to get to a campfire talk it’s a bit of journey. Sometimes that may involve a leisurely drive in a car. Other times it might involve a strenuous hike. And other times it might involve wading through a creek. What we know for sure is that the campfire is the destination point that they all seek, so that around the crackling flame they can get down to discussing and listening to what is truly important in life. Or maybe it’s just about roasting some marshmallows and making some s’mores. If campfire talks are anything, they are a break from the day in and the day out and the tedium of quotidian life.
