What do a rooster, libraries, New York and baseball have in common? This week's In My Chair is recorded via Skype with Sacramento. I have known Rivkah Sass for a few years now and she has become a good friend. She is very witty, erudite, a lovely person and a great thinker. I enjoyed getting a chance to talk with Rivkah and find out about where she grew up and what some of her wider interests are. I have been fortunate enough to stay with her and her husband Abe on a couple of occasions and have enjoyed their fine company and friendship. I hope you enjoy this episode of In My Chair.
What do Illinois, libraries, Pearl Jam and the internet have in common? This week's In My Chair is recorded via Skype with up state New York. Jenica Rogers is a good friend and someone who I enjoyed having In My Chair. She is very funny, educated, quite lovely and very relaxed talking, which makes for a great interview. I learnt a lot about a friend and I think you will very much enjoy listening to Jenica and finding out about her. I hope you enjoy this episode of In My Chair.
What do Christchurch, The White Album, Bjork and Duran Duran have in common? This week's In My Chair comes to you from Sydney and was again recorded at the Silverbean Cafe in Enmore. Deb Slater (last week's guest) turns the table on Corin Haines and asks him the questions. Corin sets the standard for swearing in an In My Chair podcast and tells some, but not all of his secrets. I hope you enjoy this episode of In My Chair and if you are ever in Sydney, check out Silverbean!
What do Handel, a Butterfly, four part harmonies and Bikram yoga have in common? This week's In My Chair comes to you from Sydney and was recorded at the Silverbean Cafe in Enmore. Our guest is more at home conducting the interviews than answering the questions, but she consented to sit in the chair. Deb was instrumental in me starting this podcast, so it only seemed fair she should be a guest. With a background in media and sound recording she has been an encouragement as well as sounding board. The cafe was noisy at times, but I think we controlled the sound well enough. I hope you enjoy this episode of In My Chair and if you are ever in Sydney, check out Silverbean!
What do Lauren Bacall, ADD, iPads and mountain biking have in common? This week's In My Chair was a riot to record. We are back interviewing someone in the U.S.A via Skype and it really was a fun conversation. Our guest works in and around libraries and I have been lucky enough to meet him on two occasions. We caught up over brunch in Colorado in April and now we do so again thanks to the internet. The sound via Skype was a bit temperamental at times, but overall the quality is good. I hope you enjoy this episode of In My Chair.
This week's In My Chair is a stunner. After Ireland and Germany, we now move on to Wales. Our guest is a relatively recent arrival in New Zealand, who has worked around the world. I recently saw him present at the National Digital Forum Conference in Wellington. He is funny, intelligent and has a thing or two to say. I hope you enjoy this episode of In My Chair.
This week's In My Chair follows up our chat with the best of Ireland, with an amazing German woman I have had the pleasure getting to know. Amelie is working in New Zealand for a year and has made a real impact on those who have come to know her. She also laughs at some of my jokes these days, which has taken her a while to get the hang of
I hope you enjoy this episode of In My Chair.
This week's In My Chair is with the funny and talented Maeve Higgins. I have admired Maeve for quite a few years now since seeing her on television and attending one of her shows. I follow her on Twitter and so to have the chance to chat with Maeve on Skype and record the interview for In My Chair was a real highlight for me. Unfortunately we lost sound towards the end of the interview and had to muck around to sort it out, so the sound changes a bit just before the end. However, we had just over 30 mins of great interview before then, we had a great In My Chair.
I hope you enjoy this episode of In My Chair as much as I enjoyed spending time talking with the lovely Maeve Higgins and if you do, you might want to consider buying her book "We Have A Good Time Don't We" or her Album "Can't Stop Doing Comedy" . They are both worth it!
This week’s person in the chair is Patti Manolis. Patti and I have known each other for some time and are both members of the International Network of Emerging Library Innovators (INELI) This podcast was recorded in Seoul, South Korea where we were both lucky enough to be spending the week. I enjoyed getting to know Patti more, and I hope you enjoy listening to the podcast.
This week’s person in the chair is Cynthia Kristufek. Cynthia lives just outside of Chicago city and I met her in person earlier this year when I was in Chicago. We had known each other online via Flickr for a few months before that. Cynthia is an amazing woman with a great photographic eye, who is lots of fun and up for a challenge. I really enjoyed this chat and I hope you do too.
