This interview is the first in a series produced during a full-day workshop on podcasting for organizational communicators. The FIR Podcast Network’s Shel Holtz leads these workshops, part of which includes the recording, editing, and production of a podcast on-site. In this first session, held at the Gleacher Center in Chicago on October 28, 2016, Ryan Alford of Interprose (based in Chicago) volunteered to conduct the interview while Amy Bickers of Northern Trust Corporation (also in Chicago) offered to take Ryan’s questions on transformation communication, a subject in which she has expertise. The questions were generic and not related directly to her work with her employer.
To record the interview, Ryan used a Marantz PMD-620 portable digital recorder (no longer available; the new model is the PMD561) with inputs via the recorder’s built-in microphones. Adobe Audition was used for editing. Music was obtained from the Free Music Archive.
