After the Jimmy Moore interview, I took comments to heart and wondered what I could do distinctively.
How about an ugly face? Distinctive enough? (That would be mine, not my guest’s.)
So I thought about it. One idea was short blurbs of a minute or two, kinda rage-ish, but I think I’m better off writing them on Twitter. I just could not get myself interested in audio only. Really, it’s too close to writing in my view — or, I’d just rather write. Video, on the other hand, is amazingly different from both.
But…videos are often too long. What I have, below, my first foray, is nearly 40 minutes and I had intended 15. FAIL. But, it’s with Mark Sisson, and wanting it to be more conversational than a formal interview, that’s what happened. I had a good time and I think Mark did too. You can see for yourself. Please do.
And, so, beyond what I hope is a lively conversation about paleo/primal qua business, what might be your input as to production, quality, format, etc? I really want to know. I have my own lessons learned and I was going to include those, but I want to see if you have the same criticisms I had, so I’m keeping my mouth shut.
And oh, I promised to let you know the software I’m using to do this, in case any of you fabulous bloggers out there wish to do likewise. Here it is. It’s basically a plugin for Skype. For $20, you can do what used to take a studio and hundreds of thousands of dollars of equipment. THe world is a changin’.
Finally, don’t be afraid to tell me you hate it; really. I’m perhaps funny in that I like to read my writing, which drives me to make it good in my estimation, but I just don’t like hearing myself in audio, or seeing myself in video. That’s not a call to make me “feel” better. I don’t need that. If you think there’s something here, then let me know how to make it better. I may still hate it, but I think I can follow your collective bidding in thins one.
Just a final note: please don’t take the foregoing to in any way detract from the content of the interview. Please, please have that as your foremost topic of conversation. Any clues about how I might improve it ought to be secondary.
