For episode 2, I managed to get the very busy and very talented Ben Pine on the line for a few minutes. We all rely on Ben and his contemporaries every day, but it’s easy to overlook just how difficult and specialized a job this is. Meteorologists not only have to have a mind for and a deep understanding of science – they also have to be comfortable in front of a green-screen, without a script, and make it look effortless. So I hope you enjoy this brief conversation with Ben.
As for the podcast itself, if you’d like to nominate someone to be a future guest, please drop me an email and tell me why. Seriously. Does one of your grandparents have a great war story to tell? Is there someone in your office who is the most amazing and underrated baker or chef that you know? Is your neighbor interesting, for reasons that only you would be able to tell me? Reach out, please, or comment below. I’m recording new episodes constantly.
(Housekeeping note: I’m wrangling with the good people at Apple to get this into the iTunes podcast store. Pretty soon, you’ll be able to subscribe in your favorite podcast app, and have new episodes delivered automatically. Stay tuned …)
Next time, I will be talking with The Funny Guy. If you’ve not met The Funny Guy yet … trust me, you want to. Cheers, and you matter.
