Different approach for intervews

By | November 10, 2011

I just finished up tonight doing another interview for my final assessment. The last two interviews I have tried a different approach and had more of an informal chat/discussion rather than a question/answer type interview.

Radio Show Podcasts Styles

By | October 28, 2011

In today’s class (Radio) we listened to different styles of radio shows. While two were similar to a traditional interview style albeit in a more conversational, friendly and relaxed demeanor the third style really intrigued me.

I already had it as it came part of the CS 5.5 Master Suite and after doing some quick tutorials on it, it’s extremely powerful and has some really handy features. I’m into my edit for the 5 min interview and have found a… Read More »

Home roasted coffee!

By | October 1, 2011

Why do I roast my own coffee? Is it better than store bought? Is it worth the time? The answers to those questions are mostly because I prefer to and much better. I started roasting my own coffee back in May 2009, I initially started due to the lack of good coffee beans in my local area, and… Read More »

Shortly after class today I will be heading over to CosmoreX Coffee to interview the owner and head roaster Attillio.
