Here is the second episode of Here. For this one I brought John Moeller to the KWLC studio to ask him about his life pre-Luther and his long history at the college and in Decorah. I am really excited about this one. It was a lot of fun to talk to John, get to know more about the guy who picked me up at the airport when I came to Luther for a job interview. John is in my department (Political Science) and I see him almost every day, and yet I had no idea he was a Russian Studies major in college (one minor spoiler here, sorry).
I am especially excited about this talk because we spent a good time talking about Luther and Decorah today and in the 1980s, when John first arrived in town. There are a lot of "shout outs" throughout the episode, from businesses to people in the region.
I hope you enjoy the podcast. Please post some comments below if you have any questions or comments about John Moeller or the interview. And if you got to this blog post as a lark (a word John used a few times in the podcast and I had to search the word's meaning to make sure I knew what he was talking about), welcome!
Okay, finally the first episode is up! I am pretty excited to share with all of you. I this pilot episode I interview Dave Grouws and Dave Grouws interviews me. We kept trying to find the commonalities of growing up in Brazil and in the Midwest. This is our first foray into editing, so it is still pretty bare bones. Soon we hope to add some music or other sounds to it, as Ben Jerke and I get a little more acquainted with the equipment. But in the end, it's all about the talking, all about people's lives. Please check it out and leave comments either here on the blog or on the SoundCloud page.
