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.
In the fall of 2015 I will launch a podcast about Luther College's faculty and staff. The project is called "Here" and is recorded at the KWLC studies and edited by Ben Jerke. When I say "about faculty and staff," I mean I bring people into a radio studio and ask questions about their lives, how they got interested in whatever nerdy stuff they now make a living doing, and how they ended up at Luther College.
This is a new exciting project that I had in my mind for at least three years, basically since I got to Luther College. From the time I stepped foot on campus and started meeting people, it became clear that everyone on campus has an interesting story to tell. While everyone's story is interesting, and everyone's path to Luther College is different, most people know very little about each other's academic and professional paths that landed them on campus. So I want to ask the people on campus how they got here.
I am working closely with David Grouws and the KWLC staff to get this off the ground, because the only thing I know about podcasts is how to listen to them. We are excited about what we have done so far, and we are looking forward to releasing these interviews soon.
If you want to know more about the show or if you want to suggest someone for me to interview, send me an email or post a comment below.
