posted: February 03, 2016 09:17

We're back for a second season of Serious Introspection, which will now take place on Wednesdays, a bit later. The show is planned to start roughly at 21:00, but may occasionally run a bit earlier or later depending on the Mad House programme on each particular night. We start next week and run until 13 April, but with no shows on 17.2 or 9.3. The full schedule can be seen on the Mad House website.

Additionally, this Friday (5.2) we'll be doing a little short bit of hosting during the Mad House season 3 opening party - we'll go on around 20:00 and interview Heikki Saure and Juha Valkeapää and some others. 

Other Serious Introspection news: We are proud to be invited to this year's IHME Päivät festival, 1-3 April in Helsinki, where Serious Introspection will be part of the 'visibility' component. We will host two short talk shows per day, live on the street. during the festival. And we will hopefully be hosting two or three shows during this year's Supermarket Art Fair in Stockholm, 21-24 April.

Our official website is www.seriousintrospection.fi for videos (as they are made), news,  and other announcements.

Serious Introspection
with John W. Fail was a live show in Helsinki, Finland from 2015-2016. The show took place at Mad House Helsinki's Ihana Baari, and was free to attend. You know, we did eight shows in the first season and it was pretty time-consuming, but we were excited to come back for eight more in 2016. It's all archived here. We tried our best to entertain. Each week, John along with hype man Justin Tyler Tate, interviewed people about their creative process and tried to deliver a direct, communicative experience about art and performance. No one is really sure why John hosted a talk show, but a lot of strange things have happened in the universe and this is ultimately pretty insignificant. We've made videos available from all episodes of the show here for you to watch. We also will occasionally post audio podcasts when we get the time to go more in-depth with people, outside of the public show. The show is indefinitely on hiatus as Justin moved away and other projects took over. The videos aren't always perfect and the audio even less so, but we hope you still enjoy them. But wait, there's more! The for-profit arm of Serious Introspection is called SI Services and we're up for anything, really! Now that we all live in different places, it's probably going to be quite an ordeal just to have three white guys host your kid's birthday party. But please believe me when I say that we would really, really love to do this. We are still available, in theory to be booked for parties, wedding, bar mitzvahs and other events. We will come to your event and offer our services for hosting, hyping and media specialisation (live tweeting) for a variable fee. If you'd like to find out more about Serious Introspection, you can start by watching these episodes and seeing if it's your cup of tea. We have a Facebook page which we use to post info about the upcoming shows and videos as they are released. The hashtag #SeriousIntrospection contains the running stream of live tweets from our media specialist Ernest Truely (and anyone else who might contribute). We have made the show available as a podcast where people get Podcasts, generally iTunes or Stitcher. Try the Overcast app, it's really nice. So yeah, that's it, pretty much. We're trying to keep this page simple, if for no other reason than our cup runneth over with websites already. We will announce future events and SI-related matters here so feel free to check back any time.
