THE HIGH BAR (tv series)

 

From 2010-2013, Warren hosted over 100 episodes of THE HIGH BAR, "your weekly watering hole for lighthearted conversation with people who care about culture that matters."  Artists, authors, activists, filmmakers, foodies, and politicians have joined Warren in "raising the bar" for topics about which they are most passionate.  Originally airing on SCAN-TV, the show moved to KBTC (a PBS affiliate in Washington State) and has been EMMY®-nominated for "Best Interview/Discussion Show".  Guests have included Lewis Black (on theater), Jodie Foster (on mental health), Elliott Gould (on nonconformity), Gary Oldman (on trust) and Dr. Cornel West (on economic equality).
