TCK Live

Join our conversations around the important topics and issues connected to TCK life.

Welcome to TCK Live

Interaction International is proud to host amazing guests to chat about our favorite topic… TCKs! Grab a drink and listen in. Participate in our live polls and submit your own questions that will be woven into the discussion or answered directly during the Q&A at the end.

Register in advance to fully participate on our Zoom platform (see below). Or you can join by watching our “Facebook Live” stream on our Interaction International Facebook Page.

Each TCK Live is recorded. So if you’re on a long international flight and miss it live, we’ve got you covered. Scroll down the page and you can catch up on our past TCK Live conversations.

Spring Schedule Coming Soon

Sign up below to be notified when we announce our spring lineup. And we welcome your suggestions on topics and/or guests you’d like us to have.

Request to be added to our email list to be kept informed as new conversations are scheduled.

Never miss a conversation!

Because TCKs don't have a universal time-zone, we record each TCK Live. Preserved in all it's original freshness, savor them at your leisure on our commercial free Vimeo account.
