Posts like these are a bit terrifying. Here I am, about to ask you all to essentially interview me for my show and all I can keep thinking is, "What if you all don't send me any questions? What if no one listens to the show because, you know... I'm not that interesting?"
While all of these thoughts constantly swirl around in my mind (and they do with most passion projects, if I'm being honest), I'm still doing it. I've committed myself to being a little braver each day and throwing this out into the universe is just part of the challenge.
Some of you have mentioned that you love the podcast, but don't really know much about me—my work, my creative path, my hobbies, my life, my fears, my joys, etc. Since the show is generally about the creative paths of others, that makes sense. However, that doesn't mean I can't let you in on my story from time to time, right?
That's where this show comes in—and you get to decide how the interview progresses.
Here's how it works:
Anyone out there in the world will be able to ask me questions about my backstory, work, life, adventure, creativity and everything in between (Within reason, of course. My family listens to the show!) and I'll do my best to answer as many as I can in the episode.
Each person can ask a question one of four ways:
Audio How-To: Voice memo is probably the most exciting option because I think it would be AMAZING to actually hear from you on the show. So, you can simply use the widget above to record (be sure to include your name and email, so I can tell readers who you are and send you a HUGE thank you after the show!) I do recommend using a headset to record, if possible, as it improves sound quality a bit. But seriously, high-five for technology. I found this recording app thanks to Jess Lively of The Lively Show and it's SO cool!
As for the timeline, I'm hoping to have all of the questions back by December 12th so I have time to record and edit the show. My goal is to go live with this episode on December 23rd before I take a little holiday break.
Sounds fun, right? Are you up for it? Is there anything you'd like to know? I can't wait to see what you all send my way!
