“I’ve had the pleasure of working with Joan Greco on several gatherings on behalf of the Fred Friendly Seminars and other venues.  Constructing the framework of these roundtables is as intellectually daunting a challenge as any I’ve seen.  The “hypotehticals” have to be engaging, plausible, raise the relevant ethical quesitons, and involve all the participants on a more or less equal basis.  It requires an uncommon blend of knowledge and inventiveness.  Joan Greco possesses both in hearts and spades.  Her strategic sense of how these conversations will play out saved me on more occasions than I care to remember.  She’s just plain terrific.”

— Jeff Greenfield, Senior Political Correspondent, CBS News

“Joan is a brilliant producer.  Whatever the topic, she will master both its intellectual nuances, and its strongest angles for engaging an audience.  She’s the best backup a moderator could have.  I know, because she has been that for me for 25 years.”

— Professor Arthur R. Miller, New York University

“Her brilliant legal mind coupled with her producer’s instincts make her an ideal person to move this project forward.”

— Professor Charles Ogletree, Harvard Law School


The first program for which Joan helped create the hypothetical scenario, The Sovereign Self: Right to Live, Right to Die, won an Emmy award.  She was the writer for Failure to Protect: A National Dialogue, winner of a 2004 duPont-Columbia University Award for Broadcast Journalism; Minds on the Edge: Facing Mental Illness, winner of the 2009 PASS Award, and Anatomy of a Libel Case, winner of an ABA Silver Gavel Award.
