We had to record this in an alternative office, because there was a meeting in the conference room. As a result, I had a weird angle on the mic and the quality isn't awesome, but I don't think that takes much away from how stellar Ethan is here. He wrote a good story, and brought all of that experience and knowledge to the table for a great discussion about Fukushima. All in all, this is something that I'm proud of, not only because I think it exemplifies the kind of work done at the Independent. It's really served as a reminder as to why I love working at the Indy: an example of the kind of people work at the Independent, and a window into what the working environment is like.
These wine podcasts are always a lot of fun, because I get to learn a lot about the world of wine. I like to imagine myself as a member of the audience, and let my natural curiosity dictate a lot of my questions or a lot of the conversation. Matt's the perfect person for that, too, because he makes the world of wine interesting and accessible.
This is one of my favorites. Aly does a fantastic job getting Kevin to engage, and his thoughts on the new record often co-incide eerily with the music playing in the background. And Aly- she's so easy to talk to, it's no wonder why she's so good at her job.
It's a bit long, but around 17:00 things get really interesting.
