A couple of days ago, we interviewed Reuben Goldberg on izimvo. When we first asked him for the interview, he sheepishly said, only if I can interview you. Shaun and I pulled straws, and I got the short one (and it was my turn after his interview with Aki Anistasiou). I am really not a fan of my voice, and cringe when I hear it played back, so I was kinda dreading the interview. I have to admit, it really wasn’t as bad as I expected when Reuben phoned me last week Wednesday to do the interview.
The interview was finally broadcast last week Friday on Reubens show, The Internet Economy, on Classic FM in Jozi. I downloaded the podcast of the interview, and had a listen. I have to admit, although the cringe of the voice was still there, it sounded a lot better than what I expected. Towards the end of last year, I took a Toastmasters course at work, and I really think it helped with the interview, and there were a lot less um’s and aahs, that what I would have had before. So all in all, I’m pretty happy with the outcome.
If you would like to listen to the interview (don’t judge me ;) :) ) you can listen (or even download if you like my voice that much) on Reuben’s Internet Economy page on the Classic FM website, or you can directly download the MP3 from the site. Here’s to the next interview :)
