Quiet on Set

When I hush you hush we hush - seriously, why is shushing so infectious “shhh"

I’ve been pointing out lately that 90% of communication is non-verbal (to make a point, please don’t qualify this with scientific method) having fun with the fact that we can say A LOT without saying anything at all. Sometimes when I point this out, people say that I should try not saying anything at all - then I say, damn that’s cold.

Truth is, I like to talk sometimes, and sometimes I like to hear other people talk too which is honest to god how we got this show … GREYT BIG TALK, big stories, big lessons, big moments, big thoughts and feelings, and findings, and confessions over confections and caffeine for kings and queens - tryna take a moment out to learn about themselves by learning about somebody going through life next door. It’s an essential part of the work, whatever "the work” is for you.

I’ve got a lot of excellent people to introduce you guys to as we’re slightly changing up the format of the program now that it dons a new name. This month we’re taping the second to last episode of GREYT BIG TALK: SEASON ONE which will feature Rick Simmons, CEO of the telos institute - 8 episodes will be released in winter/spring 2022. The final episode of season one will be recorded to a live audience next month on December 17th.

In 2022 we’ll be taping 4 live audience episodes in the spring for GREYT BIG TALK SEASON TWO, and taping 4 live audience episodes in the fall for SEASON THREE.

These are the 2022 taping dates:


  • Friday, February 18th

  • Friday, March 18th

  • Friday, April 15th

  • Friday, May 20th


  • Friday, September 16th

  • Friday, October 21st

  • Friday, November 18th

  • Friday, December 16th

These program tapings will include a mini-conference showroom with tables to meet Northeast Ohio companies supporting and participating in our region's unique creative culture as it's demonstrated in GREYT BIG TALK. If you know someone at a company that should table to help with their talent recruitment, retention, engagement initiatives, please send them my way. The more people participate, the better this program becomes.

All the details for this month are below… check it out, share the links on social or with a friend if you’re excited :-) and SIGN UP TO PITCH YOUR PROJECTS, people want to know what you’re working on.

Much love, -Thomas T. Fox
