What is the goal of Deep Dish TV? The objective of this group is to provide raw real information and footage (Video) of what would not be shown on regular TV. It provides means of communication to the public about current topics. As stated on their website, “With humor, passion, creative flair and very low budgets, Deep Dish TV artists and producers have developed provocative video series exploring issues that profoundly impact our lives.” The network gathers videos made by everyday people who produce the materials with the intent to educate about unconventional and taboo topics.

Would you join? We are torn as to whether we would join this group. While the topics seem interesting and unique, some topics may seem bias, inappropriate and unimportant. But Devin believes inappropriate is good. We both agree it is good to learn about topics that are concealed from the public.
